Waleed Mohammed Shaala
Waleed Mohammed Shaalan, of Zagazig, Egypt, was married and the father of a 1-year-old son, according to the Muslim Students Association at Virginia Tech. "He was the simplest and nicest guy I ever knew. We would be studying for our exams and he would go buy a cake and make tea for us," Fahad Pasha, Shaalan's roommate, said on the association's Web site.
Shaalan, 32, was a doctoral student in civil engineering, the university said. The Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in a statement Wednesday that the Egyptian Embassy in Washington was taking steps to fly his body home.
