Two 14-year-old boys killed a man whilst a taxi waited for them, a court has heard.

The two boys are part of a group of four who have been accused of killing Hussein Ahmed, according to The Guardian.

The court heard that the group travelled in a minicab from Hendon to Harrow and asked the driver to wait for them so they could be driven back.

Whilst the driver waited the group allgedly murdered Ahmed and attacked two 17-year-olds in November.

The man was stabbed in the back in the street near South Harrow tube station and died just days later in hospital.

Another person was stabbed in his stomach and arm, meanwhile another's sleeve was slashed as they narrowly avoided injury.

The prosecution said that the attack was unprovoked.

The two 14-year-olds have denied murder, wounding with intent, attempted wounding with intent and conspiracy to cause grievous bodily harm..

A 16-year-old is also on trial in relation to the incident at the Old Bailey and has denied charges.

The fourth member of the alleged group is believed to have left the country and is wanted by police.
