BRISBANE (AFP) - A Frenchwoman has become the fourth foreign student to be brutally murdered in the Australian city of Brisbane in almost as many months, police said Wednesday.

The battered and naked body of a 21-year-old woman was found in a park near her apartment after what police called "a brutal attack" in the early hours of Friday morning.

"We believe the cause of death is a brain injury from blunt trauma. It's a particularly aggressive attack," Detective Inspector Rod Kemp told reporters.

No one has been arrested.
