This is 16-year-old Ailton Campos de Oliveira, the fourteenth teenager to be murdered in London this year.

Nicknamed "Banana Man" by friends, he was stabbed 13 times - eight times in the chest, three times in the leg, and twice in the back - by a gang described by a witness as a "fleet of bike riders".

Some friends claim that the murder was fuelled by "girls winding up the gang over the handsome Catholic school pupil".

The attack on Ailton came less than two days after the death of 15-year-old Zac Olumegbon (right). Ailton was stabbed on Sunday, but finally lost his fight for life yesterday.

The number of kids murdered in 2010 already matches the total for the whole of 2009.
