Injured Malaysian man mugged in UK riots

Online footage of an injured student being brazenly robbed has shocked the nation.

    A video posted online depicting a group of youths appearing to help a young Malaysian student who was mugged during the London riots, and then stealing the contents of his bag, has been widely circulating.

    The footage is just one moment captured on video in recent days showing an ugly side to a city often considered as civilised or forward-looking.
