2nd teen knife murder in 2008

teen-murder-2.JPGAfter last year’s tally of 26 teen murder victims, see previous posting, we have already had 2 in 2008 so far, see BBC story.

The latest took place in Erith, South London. According to the BBC:

The youth is the second London teenager to die of stab wounds this year.

On New Year’s Day, 17-year-old Henry Bolombi was chased by a group of youths and then stabbed in the chest in Edmonton, north London.

Last year 26 teenagers were killed in stabbings and shootings in London.

With one murder on New Year’s Eve and one on Saturday morning 2008 is looking like it will be grimmer still for London’s teenagers.
