An Egyptian student is facing deportation from the US for posting on his Facebook page that he was willing to kill Republican politician Donald Trump – and the world would thank him, the Associated Press news agency reports.
Emadeldin Elsayed, 23, is not facing criminal charges over the message, but was arrested by immigration authorities last month and will now face a hearing to find out whether he will be deported.
Mr Elsayed said he wrote the message because he was angered by Mr Trump’s comments about Muslims.
He said he immediately regretted it, and he never intended to harm anyone, AP adds.
An Egyptian English language newspaper has tweeted the story:
