Malaysian student Asyraf Haziq: 'This thing happened so sudden'

The Malaysian student Asyraf Haziq, who was mugged during the riots by a group of youths who pretended to help him after he suffered a broken jaw, has spoken to the press after leaving hospital.

His mugging in Barking, London, during the riots came to world attention after amateur footage caught by an onlooker was posted on YouTube.

Prime Minister David Cameron referred to the event, when he condemned the 'sickening' aspects of the riots.

This interview was first broadcast in August 2011.
