Foreign student IDs handed to police
THE identities of half a million foreign students will reportedly be handed over to police across the country to find out if any attacks against them were racially motivated.

Following a request from the Institute of Criminology, the Department of Immigration will release the names and ages of present and former students from China, India, South Korea, Malaysia and the United States to state and territory police, Fairfax newspapers reported.

The Institute of Criminology will utilize the information to investigate whether foreign students are more likely to be victims of crime than likewise aged Australians.
