A teenager has appeared in court charged with the murder of a college student who was stabbed in Birmingham.

Azim Azam, 16, from Billesley, was found collapsed in the street after getting off the number two bus in Moseley at 08:30 BST on Monday.

A 17-year-old youth from Kings Heath, who cannot be named due to his age, appeared at Birmingham Youth Court on Thursday charged with murder.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on 23 September.

A post-mortem examination revealed Azim died of a single stab wound.

He was found lying in Yardley Wood Road at its junction with Hayfield Road on Monday and died later in hospital.
