A 19-year-old charged with murdering a US tourist and wounding five other people in a knife attack in central London will go on trial next year.
Zakaria Bulhan, of south-west London, is accused of murdering retired teacher Darlene Horton, 64, during the attack in Russell Square last Wednesday.
The 19-year-old - a Norwegian national of Somali origin - is also accused of the attempted murder of five others.
The Old Bailey heard one man remains in hospital in a serious condition.
Judge Nicholas Hilliard QC, Recorder of London, remanded the defendant in custody and set a trial date of 6 February.
