A third man has been charged with killing 16-year-old Hani Abou El Kheir in west London.

Craig Boyce, 25 of Paddington, was charged with stabbing to death Hani in Pimlico in January.

Earlier, Arber Barbatovci, 19, of Pimlico, west London, was remanded in custody after he appeared at the Old Bailey over Hani's death.

Along with Mr Barbatovci, Ahmed Mikhaimar, 19, of Pimlico, was remanded to a further hearing on 16 April.

Hani was killed in Lupus Street, near where he lived on the Churchill Gardens estate.

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