A man who denies murdering a Glasgow teenager was just as responsible as whoever stabbed the schoolboy, a court has heard.
Kriss Donald's body was found in the east end of Glasgow
Daanish Zahid, 20, has admitted being in a car when 15-year-old Kriss Donald was stabbed then set on fire in the east end of Glasgow in March.
Summing up in the case, advocate-depute Mark Stewart said Mr Zahid involved in a "common criminal enterprise".
Mr Zahid has incriminated two other people for Kriss's death.
Mr Stewart told the jury: "The circumstances of this case are truly appalling.
"It is, on any view, an unprovoked random attack on a defenceless, young, slightly built schoolboy.
"It is racially motivated and it was carried out by a large gang of older, bigger, stronger individuals.
"Against that group Kriss Donald stood no realistic chance of self-defence."
Mr Stewart told the court the teenager must have experienced "extreme terror" throughout his ordeal.
In his evidence on Tuesday, Mr Zahid told the court he remained in the front seat of the silver Mercedes, which was used to abduct Kriss, while the teenager was stabbed 13 times, doused in petrol and then set alight.
Mr Stewart said that was not a reason to acquit him.
He told the jury: "You personally don't have to wield the knife in a group activity to be guilty of murder."
Ian Duguid QC, representing Mr Zahid, described the crime as "horrific" but urged the jury to approach it in a dispassionate way.
Mr Duguid said: "The evidence is he (Mr Zahid) is not the actual killer.
"He never carried a knife at any time during that day."
The QC said there was no DNA evidence, blood, fingerprints or footprints to suggest Mr Zahid left the car at the murder scene.
The trial continues.
