They are 21-year-old Kamal Hussain and 18-year-old Yosif Ahmed, both from west London, who were arrested at an address in Whitechapel yesterday morning.

They have been charged this morning with Zahir’s murder and are appearing in custody at Westminster Magistrates’ Court later.

An 18-year-old arrested with them at a Whitechapel address on suspicion of “assisting an offender” has been released under investigation.

Zahir died after being attacked in a flat in Elmton Court, by the Regent’s Canal, on March 28.

Police and ambulance paramedics treated him at the scene, but he died in hospital later that night.
