8 Teenagers Who Died Before They Lived

Towards the end of last year, I wrote about London's horrible death toll in 2007: twenty-five teenagers were murdered - by other teenagers.

Well, three months into 2008, and London is on track to beat that record, with eight kids stabbed or beaten to death in the capital so far. By the end of the year, if that rate is maintained, thirty-two youths will be dead.

Here is the roll call of this year's lost boys:

1. Henri Bolombi, 17, stabbed on 1/01/08

2. Faridon Alizada, 18, stabbed 4/01/08

3. Louis Boduka, 18, stabbed 21/01/08

4. Fuad Buraleh, 19, beaten to death 26/01/08

5. Sunday Essiet, 15, stabbed 19/2/08

6. Tung Le, 17, stabbed 23/2/08

7. Ofiyke Nmezu, 16, beaten 15/2/08, died 29/2/08

8. Michael Alexander Jones, 18, beaten to death 13/03/08

How many more?
