A 15-year-old boy has been remanded in custody charged with murdering a teenager who was stabbed in Birmingham city centre at the weekend.
The defendant, who cannot be named because of a court order, is accused of murdering 17-year-old Muhammad Hassam Ali, who was found seriously injured in Victoria Square shortly before 3.30pm on Saturday.
He was taken to hospital but died later the same day.
A spokesman for Birmingham Magistrates’ Court said the 15-year-old appeared in court on Thursday and was ordered to appear at the city’s Crown Court on Monday.
A second boy, also aged 15, has been released on conditional police bail.
