The 19-year-old Vietnamese student who fell victim to a brutal assault in Melbourne last December has recovered and left the hospital, according to a release issued by the Australian Embassy in Hanoi Friday.

Vu Ngoc Minh will continue his recovery at a rehabilitation clinic in Melbourne, the statement said.

"I have been very pleased with the support provided by his education institution, the Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology," said Australian Ambassador HE Mr Allaster Cox. "As we start a new year, I look forward to hearing of Minh's continued recovery and the resumption of his studies."

Minh, a student at Deakin University's Melbourne Institute of Business and Technology, was beaten up by a group of youngsters in Melbourne on December 26. The attack left him in a critical condition with brain injuries.

Nguoi Lao Dong (Laborer) newspaper reported on Saturday that Australian police are still investigating the case.
