Two teenagers charged with murder

Two teenagers have been charged with the murder of a 24-year-old man who was beaten to death in east London.

Sami Berjaoui was found with head injuries on 21 September when police responded to reports of a fight in Moss Close, Whitechapel.

Nahid Ahed, 19, from Tower Hamlets, and a 17-year-old boy, from Whitechapel, are due to appear before Thames magistrates later charged with murder.

Abu Tahir, 19, of Forest Gate, was also charged with the murder last Thursday.

A post-mortem examination found a subarachnoid haemorrhage was the cause of death.

Two other teenagers, aged 17 and 18, were arrested over the killing but bailed until late October.
