Five men have denied the murder of a teenager who was beaten to death in a Liverpool park.

Ahmed Mohamed Ibrahim, 17, died and another teenager was injured in the attack in Croxteth Drive, near Sefton Park, on 11 March.

A post-mortem examination revealed the cause of death as "blunt force trauma".

The five men, who are all aged between 19 and 29, were remanded in custody at Liverpool Crown Court to face trial on 27 October.

Khadar Mohammed, 22, Essa Mohammed Ismail, 21, both from Toxteth, Liverpool, Ali Mohammed, 19, of Ritson Street, Liverpool, Ibrahim Ahmed, 22, of Northbrook Road, Liverpool, and Ahmed Kayse Ahmed, 29, of St Mary Street, Greenwich, London, all deny murder.

They have also pleaded not guilty to violent disorder on the day before Ahmed, a Somali national, died.

A further charge of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm was denied by Khadar Mohammed, Essa Mohammed Ismail and Ibrahim Ahmed.
