Eight men arrested over a fight in which a man was fatally stabbed in Birmingham have been bailed.

Ullah Khan, known locally as Ikram Elahi, 28, was stabbed in the neck in Sparkbrook on Wednesday as violence broke out between two groups of men.

Police said two men held on suspicion of murder were being treated and would be questioned "once declared fit".

Four of the men released had been detained on suspicion of attempted murder and violent disorder.

They have been bailed, while inquiries continue, with strict conditions attached "including not to enter the city", police said.

The other four men, aged 24 to 27, who have been given police bail while inquiries continue, were arrested last Thursday on suspicion of violent disorder.

One man was slashed and a third victim was shot and wounded.
