A man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering an 18-year-old in Manchester.

Abdul Hafidah was stabbed after being hit by a car on Moss Lane East in Moss Side on 12 May. He died two days later.

Fifteen people, including boys, aged 14 and 17, have previously been arrested over Mr Hafidah's death. Three will face no further action, while the rest have been bailed until September.

A 29-year-old man is being questioned after being arrested on Thursday, Greater Manchester Police said.

Police believe Mr Hafidah had been chased near Greenheys Lane before being struck by a blue Vauxhall Corsa and then stabbed.

He was taken to hospital with wounds to the neck and abdominal injuries.
