Aamir Siddiqi's parents: 'He was a very popular boy'

Two "staggeringly incompetent" hitmen have been found guilty of stabbing to death an innocent student after the killers called at the wrong house.

Aamir Siddiqi, 17, was attacked at his Cardiff home by Jason Richards, 38, and Ben Hope, 39, in April 2010.

The killers, who will be sentenced next Friday, had been told to murder a different man on a neighbouring street.

The Swansea Crown Court jury returned its verdicts on the second day of deliberations.

Aamir's parents, Iqbal and Parveen Ahmed said he was a very popular boy who was liked by everybody in his neighbourhood and school.
