A man has appeared in court accused of the murder of a teenager in central London.

Hani Abou El Kheir, 16, was attacked in Lupus Street, Pimlico, on 27 January. Police have said they think at least 10 people were involved.

Hani, who lived on the nearby Churchill Gardens estate, died from multiple stab wounds at King's College Hospital.

Ahmed Mikhaimar, 19, of Vauxhall Bridge Road, Victoria, appeared before Redbridge Magistrates' Court.

He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Thursday.

A 20-year-old man and three youths, aged 16, 17 and 18, were also arrested on suspicion of Hani's murder and have all been released on bail.

Four other people were held on suspicion of assisting an offender - a man aged 48, a woman of 47 and two girls aged 16 and 17 - and have also been released.
