A boy stabbed to death by a gang allegedly wielding knives and wide swords in London on Sunday night was today named by family friends as Hani Abou El-Kheir.
The 16-year-old was killed in Pimlico with witnesses saying that he screamed for his life.
Family friend Mahmoud Abosiad said: "He was a lovely boy. He did not deserve to end up on a slab."
Mohammed Alzubaidi from nearby Peabody Close said that his friend witnessed a gang of black and white teenagers carrying out the attack.
The fatally injured teenager was found by ambulance staff, after emergency services were called to the Lupus Street area following reports that a youth had been stabbed.
He was taken to a south London hospital where he died a few hours later.
