Police investigating the death of a teenager in Pimlico last month have arrested a man.

The 19-year-old was detained today on suspicion of murder, Scotland Yard said.

Hani Hicham Abou El Kheir, 16, was found dead on January 27 in Lupus Street, near where he lived on the Churchill Gardens estate. A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as multiple stab wounds.

Earlier, a second man appeared at the Old Bailey today charged with his murder.

Arber Barbatovci, 19, of Pimlico, was remanded in custody to face a plea and case management hearing on April 16.

Last week Ahmed Mikhaimar, 19, of Aubrey Beardsley House, Vauxhall Bridge Road, Pimlico, also accused of Hani’s murder, was remanded to the same date.
