A man has been arrested in connection with the fatal stabbing of Hani Abou El Kheir in Pimlico on Sunday.

The 20-year-old was detained in north London today on suspicion of murder.

Hani, 16, died after an attack in Lupus Street, close to the underground station at around 7pm. A post-mortem examination held on Tuesday gave his cause of death as multiple stab wounds.

Police now believe at least ten youths were involved in the incident and a number of witnesses have subsequently come forward to help police with their investigation.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Attewell, said: “The tragic events of last Sunday have left Hani’s mother and wider family completely devastated.

“Hani’s mother has lost her only child and is still coming to terms with the heartbreaking events that have led to the death of her son.

“I am directly appealing to the parents and carers of those believed to be involved - if you have slightest indication that your child may have been involved in this incident I encourage you to get them to hand themselves into the police.

“Failing to do so will result in my officers pursuing them until we have caught all those responsible.

“Parents, we urge you to encourage your children to come and speak to us.”

Any witnesses or anyone with any information should contact 0208 345 3715 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
