A 15-YEAR-OLD BOY was stabbed to death in central London yesterday.

The boy - who has yet to be named - was knifed in the ticket hall of Victoria Underground station during the evening rush hour. Victoria is one of London's busiest, used by more than 78 million passengers a year. "The boys attacking [the victim] couldn't have been any older than him as they were wearing a dark blue school uniform," a London Underground staff member is quoted as saying.

Twenty people have been arrested.

He is the fourth boy to die violently this year. 17-year-old Olukorede Fajinmi, right, was stabbed in the heart last month. In January, 18-year-old Isschan Nicholls died in a street fight.

On 4th March, the body of 16-year-old Jessie Wright was found in Kings Cross, north London. She was the third victim this year.

Last year, 11 teenage boys were murdered in London, down from 28 in 2008.
