    Hussain Saeed Alnahdi, 24, a Saudi student attending the University of Wisconsin-Stout, died following a beating attack.

    Hundreds gathered on Thursday at the University of Wisconsin-Stout to pay their last respects to classmate Hussain Saeed Alnahdi, NBC News reported.

    The 24-year-old Saudi student was assaulted and left bloodied outside a pizzeria on a crowded street Sunday morning. He later died from the assault. Authorities are not dismissing the possibility that the attack was a hate crime. It is likely that many also witnessed the beating on Sunday, though there is only one viable witness.

    More than 20 of Alnahdi’s closes friends shared their memories of him Thursday while holding candles. He was described as a man who “bridged the gap between the Saudi and local community.”
