Six to face court over Tube murder

Sofyen Belamouadden, 15, died after suffering multiple stab wounds

Six more teenagers are to appear in court charged with killing a 15-year-old boy in a pre-planned fight at one of Britain’s busiest train stations.

The latest charges mean 19 people have now been accused of killing Sofyen Belamouadden at Victoria Underground Station, in London, during the evening rush hour on March 25.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said the boys – two 15-year-olds, two 16-year-olds and two 17-year-olds – would appear in custody at Sutton Youth Court.

Four 16-year-olds and eight 17-year-olds – all boys but who cannot be named for legal reasons – have appeared in court over the incident and been remanded in custody.

Victoria Osoteku, 18, was remanded in custody after appearing at Croydon Magistrates’ Court on April 1.

Sofyen, from Acton, west London, was a pupil at Henry Compton School in Fulham, west London.

He was stabbed nine times during the attack.
