A man who "brutally" stabbed a 20-year-old man to death has been convicted of murder.

Ahmed Mohammed, known as Mudi, died on Crondall Street, Moss Side, in March from stab wounds to the neck and chest.

Abdirashid Boos, 23, of Broadfield Road, was found guilty of murder on Monday following a trial at Manchester Crown Court.

Three other men were also found guilty of assisting or encouraging an offender.

Kaz Johnson, 30, of Lindum Street, Rusholme, was with Abdirashid Boos at the time of the attack and was convicted of assisting or encouraging the commission of an offence.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said Boos's brother, Abdirahman Boos, 25, tried to help him leave Manchester alongside Adnan Mohammed, 20, who also set fire to the car which Abdirashid Boos used to travel to and from the scene.

Alison Cartmell from the CPS said: "Abdirashid Boos committed a brutal murder in broad daylight on a residential street.

"His brother Adbirahman Boos drove by to see the aftermath for himself, before making menacing gestures to Mudi's friends who were at that time trying to help save his life.

"Kaz Johnson was identified and traced by meticulous searches of CCTV evidence."

All four will be sentenced on Wednesday.
