A woman and a man have been released on bail over the fatal stabbing of Noor Hassan Barre at Middlesex University.

The 21-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man were arrested in connection with the case yesterday (Monday, 3 November) but have now been bailed to a date later this month.

Two other men, aged 21 and 20 years old, who were also arrested yesterday, remain in police custody.

Barre, who was not a student at the north London university, was stabbed after a fight broke out at the university campus shortly after 1am on Friday, 31 October.

He was taken by London Ambulance Service to hospital in a critical condition but died a short time later.

A post-mortem examination held at Northwick Park Hospital gave the cause of death as stab wounds to the chest.
