In an interview with news website HuffPost, the boy, who can not be named for legal reasons, said he had become concerned when he saw the violent nature of the comments online.

Jamal and his family fled their war-torn town of Homs in 2016.

The description for the GoFundMe reads: "Jamal's family are refugees in the United Kingdom and they struggle to meet the basic necessities of life.

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.

Akunjee says the family are now seriously considering uprooting and moving elsewhere in the country, particularly since realising the extent of bullying affecting the victim's 14-year-old sister and the impact on her.

Boxer Lennox Lewis also posted a message of support the child saying he would like to meet with both the victim and the bully to help him see the error of his ways.

Police are investigating a report of a "racially-aggravated assault" against a 15-year-old boy after a violent video was widely shared on social media.

He said the bullying and racism have been so bad since he came to the United Kingdom through a UN refugee program that he didn't want to go to school.

-Throughout the campaign I have increased the target of the funds and I will continue to do so as I feel it is important that we raise as much money as possible for the family. Sometimes I say to my dad, "I don't want to go to school anymore". "I just don't want anything bad to happen to anyone". Police reports said that people from Eastern Europe were particularly singled out for abuse around the referendum, which focused partly on "taking back control of our borders".

"She has also attempted suicide, and tried to cut her wrists, the level of bullying got so much".

His father said he did not want to give interviews to waiting media but, as they left, the teenager just said "thanks for everything" before getting into a waiting auto.

It was filmed about a month ago at his school in Huddersfield, a small city northeast of Manchester.

Both were attacked by other students on school premises and the footage of the two incidents ended up online, triggering hundreds of comments and ultimately a police investigation.

"I don't want anything awful to happen to him at all", he said.

Taking to Twitter after the attack on Jamal, Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman described the video as "absolutely shocking".

Tonight Kirklees Council said alleged incidents at Almondbury Community School are "very serious matters" and that they are fully focused on their work with the police and the school.

A crowdfunding page set up online to assist the bullied teenager and his family has raised more than £115,000 ($147,571) only 24 hours since it was launched.
