A seventh person has been arrested over the fatal stabbing of a teenager in central London.

Hani Abou El Kheir, 16, died from multiple knife wounds after he was attacked in Lupus Street, Pimlico, on 27 January.

A 25-year-old man is being questioned at an east London police station.

Arber Barbatovci, 19, of Pimlico, and Ahmed Mikhaimar, of Vauxhall Bridge Road, Victoria, have been charged with Hani's murder.

They have been remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey at a later date.

A 20-year-old man and three youths, aged 16, 17 and 18, who were also arrested on suspicion of Hani's murder earlier this month, have all been released on bail.

Four other people were held on suspicion of assisting an offender - a man aged 48, a woman of 47 and two girls aged 16 and 17 - and have also been released.
