Police hold emergency meeting to discuss ‘foreign criminality’ after illegal immigrant who had avoided deportation batters a woman to death in Austria

Austrian police held an emergency meeting to discuss a new strategy to tackle ‘foreign criminality’ after an illegal immigrant battered a woman to death.

The 54-year-old victim, known only as Maria E, was beaten to death with an iron bar as she was walking to work in Vienna.

The arrested man is believed to be from Kenya and was known to the Federal Office for Asylum, who had been ordered for him to be deported two years ago.
