KUALA LUMPUR: Acting British High Commissioner to Malaysia Ray Kyles has condemned the attack on Malaysian student Mohd Asyraf Raziq Rosli by rioters in London, calling it a brutal and cowardly act.
The high commission, he added, also encouraged people to continue plans to visit or study in the United Kingdom but urged them to exercise caution and avoid violence-hit areas until order was restored.
Mohd Asyraf Raziq Rosli, 20, was on his way to buy food to break his fast when he was attacked by rioters in Barking East, London.
Wounded and left bleeding on the street, he was later robbed by another gang.
The robbery, which took place at 7pm London time (3am Malaysian time) Tuesday, was recorded by someone and later uploaded on YouTube.
