Yesterday afternoon saw London’s 5th teen murder in 2008. This time in Invermore Place, Plumstead near Woolwich.
I was hoping that after January’s grim toll of 4 deaths we could get through February without.
According the Standard piece today the 15-year old kid was hunted down and stabbed to death in the street by a gang of five youths. The co-writer of the report is Benedict Moore-Bridger late of Ealing Times.
Covered by the BBC also here.
Until the police can work out how to stop these kids carrying this will continue.
Update: More details from the BBC here.
I have listed the names, ages and cause of death of these five young men below:
1 January: Henry Bolombi, 18, stabbed to death
5 January: Faridon Alizada, 18, stabbed to death
21 January: Boduka Mudianga, 18, stabbed to death
26 January: Fuad Buraleh, 19, beaten to death
19 February: Sunday Essiet, 15, stabbed to death
