A 17-year-old boy has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man in a busy city street.

Abdirahman Abdirizak Mahmoud Adam, 22, died in hospital shortly after he was discovered in St Matthews Way, Leicester, on Monday afternoon.

The teenager, who cannot be named because of his age, has also been charged with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place.

He appeared before magistrates on Thursday and was remanded in custody.

He will next appear at Leicester Crown Court on Friday morning.

Police said a post-mortem examination revealed he died from a stab wound.
