Hackney stabbing: Two boys held after an 18-year-old man was stabbed to death



Two boys have been arrested after an 18-year-old man was stabbed to death in an east London street.

 
Police officers found Israel Ogunsola wounded in Link Street, Hackney, after they were alerted by a motorist just before 20:00 BST on Wednesday.


He was given first aid, but died at the scene. He was initially thought to be aged in his 20s.


Less than two miles away a 53-year-old man earlier died at a bookmakers following reports of an assault.


It takes the number of people killed in the capital to more than 50 this year.

On Thursday, a man in his mid-20s was stabbed in Walthamstow, in Billet Road near Chingford Road, at about 12:50 BST.
