The perpetrator is thought to be a student at Almondbury Community School in Huddersfield and has been the subject of hundreds of violent threats online.

A video showing a Syrian refugee being attacked by fellow students at a school in the United Kingdom has gone viral on social media, prompting involvement from the local council and police department.

The second video to emerge shows a hijab-wearing girl, said by the family's lawyer to be the boy's sister, pushed down a grass verge and shoved by a group.

An attack on a Syrian refugee teenager in the United Kingdom, captured in a widely-shared video, has sparked global outrage and prompted a crowdfunding campaign that has raised more than $175,000 for the family.

"I woke up at night and just started crying about this problem".

Following on from his comments, Tommy said in a second video that he has seen images of the girl that the Syrian refugee was involved with a gang of Muslim girls that kicked, beat and bit the English girl. "Sometimes I say to my dad I don't want to go to school anymore", he added.

According to the Daily Mail, the incident involving the unnamed white teen and a 15-year-old boy named Jamal happened at the Almondbury Community School in Huddersfield, a town in West Yorkshire, England. I can also assure you that we are working very hard to ensure it is "business as usual" across the school and that there is no disruption to the children's education.

The boy said that he was being routinely bullied at the school and he had brought this to the attention of the school administration, but no action was taken.

The 15-year-old boy, who can not be named for legal reasons, fled the city of Homs in 2010 when he was eight.

Akunjee told CNN that the family fled from Homs in Syria to Lebanon.

"A 16-year-old boy has been interviewed by voluntary attendance in connection with the incident and we are continuing to progress the investigation", Superintendent Steve Dodds said yesterday.

Mr Aslam said: "It happened in October, the police made a decision to charge the bully yesterday morning because of this public outcry".

In a Twitter post, Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman described the video as "absolutely shocking".

"I was just crying and I didn't do nothing because I respect the school rules".

The incident occurred last month but it is being highlighted now after being shared thousands of times on social media by people angry at the lack of action by the school. "The wellbeing of students is of paramount importance to us and a high level of support is available to anyone who may need it".

Kirklees Council said: "Neither us nor the school condone violence in any form, and behaviour like this will not be tolerated".
