A Kuwaiti female student enrolled at a Jordanian university had a narrow escape.
An unidentified Jordanian reportedly attacked her near the building where she lives and attempted to slit her throat with a knife.
Huda is studying human medicine at the University of Sciences and Technology in the city of Irbid in northern Jordan.
The masked assailant attacked her as she was sitting in the courtyard of the residential building and put the knife on her neck in an attempt to slit her throat before feeling the crime scene when she screamed for help.
Her father Ali Makasid said that his daughter was wearing a thick hijab, which might have saved her.
The student returned to Kuwait, refusing to continue her studies in Jordan, due to the traumatic incident.
