A 15-year-old boy has been charged with murder over the fatal stabbing of a teenager in south-east London.

Tamim Ian Habimana, who was also 15, died shortly after he was attacked on Woolwich New Road, Woolwich, on Monday.

The youth is due to appear at Bromley Magistrates’ Court later and has also been charged with attempted murder of another teenager and possession of an offensive weapon.

Two more boys, 14 and 15, were arrested on suspicion of murder on Friday.

They remain in custody at a police station in south London.

Det Ch Insp Richard Leonard, the officer in charge of the investigation, said: “I hope this reassures both Tamim’s family and the wider community of our dedication to bringing justice for his murder.”

Police at scene of stabbing

To date, 21 teenagers have been killed in London in 2021. Across the whole of last year, 17 teens were killed in violent attacks in the capital.

If teenage deaths continue at the current rate, this will be the worst year for teenage killings in London since 2008.
