Aiia Maasarwe: Israeli student, 21, killed in Melbourne as she spoke to her sister on mobile

"As a government, we will do whatever is required to support this woman's family and friends and I extend my sympathy to her family and friends at this awful, bad time", she added. We think that's the time.

"We want women to be safe and be able to walk home without being attacked".

"She loved this city and the university. very much", Saeed Maasarwe told reporters as he visited the site where his daughter's body was found on Wednesday.

Maasarwe, who was reportedly five months into a year-long exchange at Melbourne's LaTrobe University, was riding a tram home from a comedy club to the suburb of Bundoora before she was met by her attacker at around midnight.

"I want to be with her more time, but someone decided that I can not be".

Maasarwe's uncle, Rame, told CNN affiliate Nine News Australia her death was the "last thing" he expected in a country such as Australia. "You need God's mercy to bear such news", he said.

The Melbourne community has organized a vigil outside Victoria state parliament later Friday.

"Aiia was very bright since her early days, very active, smart, fun and forgiving". The tram will depart from Parliament Station and travel to Bundoora, where her body was found.

Kyrie Irving Vows 'Never to Question' Celtics Teammates Publicly Again
There's a belief that Irving is frustrated with Jayson Tatum , whose play has been inconsistent this year. In order to do that, we all have to be on the same page and have that mindset of championship or nothing.

Police appealed to the public for help tracking down the killer of 21-year-old Aiia Maasarwe, whose body was found yesterday near the campus of the Melbourne university where she was studying.

La Trobe University vice-chancellor John Dewar said the university had "intensified" its security following the attack.

One of the organisers of Friday night's vigil, Jessamy Gleeson, said there was a lot of anger in the community that such an event was needed again. "We can not believe that something like this happened in Australia, we think it's very safe there".

After the vigil, Ms Bridger-Darling said she didn't know what needs to happen next to stop violence against women.

"The human cost of male violence is staggering, the incalculable social trauma and human misery it engenders is soul-destroying".

Jane Pickering, the organiser of the silent vigil, said: "I felt that fear and rage and despair and sadness, and I thought of all the other women and girls who went out to see their friends on the same night and caught the tram home on the same night and how all of us live with that fear and risk".

"One of the reasons I like this area is that it's always so busy", Lowe said.
