A man has been charged in East London today with the murder of his 79-year-old father at his home in Bethnal Green.
Suluk Ahmed, 31, was charged following a stabbing incident in Huddleston Close on Sunday evening.
He is also charged with two attempted murders in the terraced council house.
Ahmed, who appears in custody at Thames Magistrates’ Court tomorrow, was charged by detectives after being treated in hospital for injuries.
Three children were brought out of the house at the end of the cul-de-sac on Sunday evening, a two-year-old boy and an 11-year-old girl found with stab injuries and a 13-year-old boy found with minor injuries.

Ahmed’s father was taken in a wheelchair to a waiting ambulance, but died three hours later in hospital.
A fleet of seven ambulances and a dozen police cars had converged on the quiet Huddleston Close off Parmiter Street, near Victoria Park.
The cul-de-sac, built in 1993 as a community for large families, was named after the late Bishop of Stepney Trevor Huddleston, a formidable campaigner against South African apartheid in the 1960s.
Detectives from the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command are not looking for anyone else in connection with the incident. But they urge anyone with any information to contact the incident room on 020-8345 3865, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800-555111.
