London police released shocking security camera footage.

The video shows a gang of five Asian men who follow a foreign student. An argument breaks out after they get close to each other. One of the gang members grabs a bottle and hits the student with it. They then chase the student across the road. They keep kicking and punching him to the ground.

The student was taken to a hospital. His face is seriously injured and it will never heal completely. He is scared to go out in London alone.

Police believe the victim was attacked because he’s not local.

Difficult words:

break out (start suddenly)

grab (take quickly)

chase (follow).
