A fifth and six man have been charged with murder over the brutal stabbing of a teenager who was chased by a mob through a housing estate in east London.
Rickell Rogers, 21, and Sheku Jallow, 22, both of no fixed abode, have been charged with murder along with the four other men who were previously charged by police.
The victim, 17-year-old Marcel Addai, was found with stab wounds on the St John's Estate in Hoxton, in the east London borough of Hackney, after police were called to reports of an assault.
The teenager was allegedly pursued by around 15 people and witnesses say his screams could be heard echoing throughout the estate.
The London Ambulance Service attended the scene but he was pronounced dead at 11.47pm.
His family said they had been left ''totally devastated'' by his death.
The four other people charged with murder are Sodiq Adebayo, 22, Akeem Gbadamosi, 21, Eugene Ocran, 19, and Momar Faye, 18.
Rogers and Jallow, who were arrested on September 15, will appear in custody at Hendon Magistrates' Court on Thursday.
