Five men who attacked a 16-year-old boy with knives and swords have been convicted of his murder.

Hani Hicham Abou El Kheir was attacked as he walked through an estate in Pimlico, London in January last year.

He was set upon by up to 10 people and stabbed more than 20 times.

Ahmed Mikhaimar and Arber Barbatovci, both 20, Craig Boyce, 26, Tarquai Joseph, 19, and a man who cannot be named for legal reasons, were found guilty at the Old Bailey.

Mikhaimar and Barbatovci, both of Pimlico, Boyce, of Paddington, and Joseph, of Maida Vale, will be sentenced on Friday.

Donjeta Gashi, 21, of Kentish Town, and Yassine Sidi-Ammi, 19, of Pimlico were both acquitted of perverting the course of justice in relation to the 16-year-old's killing.

The jury are still deliberating on a verdict of a second count of the same charge against Ms Gashi.
