In two separate incidents two teenagers were stabbed to death yesterday bringing this year’s teen murder toll to 11 already. BBC coverage here. They say:
Police said Amro Elbadawi was injured in Dart Street, Queen’s Park, on Thursday afternoon and was confirmed dead after being taken to hospital.
In a separate incident, a 17-year-old died after being stabbed in a street in Stamford Hill, north London, on Thursday morning.
Some people have criticised me for raising this issue. Clearly they are not teenagers from hard up families for whom this is their main concern.
