More charges over Shaquille death

Three more teenagers have been charged with the murder of 14-year-old Shaquille Smith in east London.

Shaquille was stabbed to death in Hackney last weekend, while sitting on a bench outside his home.

George Amponsah, 18, of Greenwood Road, east London, and a 17-year-old and a 16-year-old from Hackney will appear before Thames Magistrates on Monday.

Two others who were charged with Shaquille's murder appeared in court earlier this week.

Godiowe Dufeal, 19, of Well Street, east London, and a 16-year-old boy who cannot be named, were remanded in custody to re-appear in court on 3 October.
