Sterling Va. A 22-year-old Virginia man was held on a murder charge Monday in the slaying of the girl who

Egypt is monitoring through its embassy in Washington the case of 17-year-old American-Muslim girl with Egyptian origins who was murdered on Monday after being beaten, and kidnapped in front of a mosque in Virginia, Egypt's foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The vigil will be held at 1609 Washington Plaza, Reston, Virginia 20190.

Locals had gathered at the United States capital's Dupont Circle on Tuesday night (local time) to mourn the young woman.

A mourner in New York City leaves flowers on June 20, 2017 for Nabra Hassanen, a teenage Muslim girl killed by a bat-wielding motorist near a Virginia mosque.

Fairfax County police said Monday that they had turned up no slurs or other evidence that Martinez Torres was motivated to kill Nabra because of her religion. Her remains were found Sunday afternoon. "Christian, Muslim, Jew, Hispanic, whatever". The ADAMS Center, one of the largest mosques in the country, has a long history of interfaith outreach and activism, and ADAMS board chair Rizwan Jaka said there has been "just a tremendous outpouring of support" from people of all faiths.

"We call on law enforcement to investigate all aspects of the motive", said Rizwan Jaka, ADAMS Center chairman of the board.

Nabra and her friends were walking back from a McDonald's restaurant when they encountered Martinez, said Fairfax police spokeswoman Tawny Wright.

Mahmoud Hassanen told CNN he believes his daughter was targeted because of her religion.

Other funeral attendees expressed similar sentiments. "It's too hard. I raised my daughter for 17 years". Martinez Torres, who appeared in court Monday by video conference from jail, has not entered a plea, said Fairfax County Commonwealth's Attorney Raymond Morrogh. "It could have been anybody".

She is being buried at the nearby Sterling Cemetery. "I think most of us, though, we just want to see justice meted out and we hope that happens". "We have only each other", the imam said as he stood in front of Hassanen's coffin, covered by a black shroud decorated with quotes from the Quran.

Muslim advocacy groups have said that authorities should continue to look into the possibility of bias.

Torres has been charged with murder. One of the teenagers riding a bicycle in the almost 15-person group got into an argument with Torres, who was driving at the time.

Fairfax County Police did say "Torres took Nabra in his auto to a second location nearby in Loudoun County".

Fairfax County Police said the murder is not being investigated as a hate crime. "It is a time for us to come together to pray and care for our youth". He said the teen's death has prompted the entire community to rally and that the Muslim community is not alone in its grief.

While waiting for a vigil after the teen's funeral and burial, Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler Jr. spoke with The Associated Press about the community's concerns. The attack on Hassanen came as she was on her way to a mosque for Ramadan.

On Father's Day, police found the body of Muslim teenager named Nabra Hassanen and soon arrested a suspect, Darwin Martinez Torres, who has been charged with murder.

Police in northern Virginia say a man fatally beat a Muslim teenager with a bat during a weekend road-rage incident. It was road rage that inflicted "blunt force trauma" to her body, and road rage that discarded that lifeless body in a pond a few miles away.

Torres is suspected of beating and killing Hassanen.
