Egypt’s Prosecutor-General Nabil Sadek is sending a request to German authorities for the details of the investigation into the death of an Egyptian student in Germany last month, after reports by German media suggested she may have been the victim of a hate crime, state-news agency MENA reported on Tuesday.

Shaden Mohamed, a 22-year-old architecture student at the German University in Cairo, was killed on 18 April in a hit-and-run incident in Cottbus, Brandenburg, with the driver of the car arrested shortly after, according to German media reports.

Shaden was hospitalised but died of her injuries three days later. 

Egypt's Immigration and Expatriate Affairs Minister Nabila Makram announced on Monday that Egyptian international lawyer Khaled Abu Bakr has been retained to follow up on the investigations.

German newspaper Lausitzer Rundschau has cited witnesses as saying that the people in the car that hit Mohamed had laughed after striking her, and were heard saying that she should go back to her country.
