They will appear before Liverpool City Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

Sayid Hassan Effa, of Toxteth, will appear alongside the three men charged with violent disorder.

Two other men, Kadir Mohammed, 22, and Essa Mohammed Ismail, 21, who are also both from Toxteth, appeared in court charged with murder on Friday.

They were remanded in custody by Liverpool magistrates. It brings to five the total of number of people charged with Ahmed's murder.
