Britain endures vicious Bank Holiday

From Times Online May 27, 2008

Amar Aslam’s horrifically beaten body was found in a walled garden in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. Six people were in custody today after the death of Amar Aslam, 17, in a "sustained and brutal attack" in the walled garden of a park in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire. Two of those being held were aged 12 and 13, and three were aged 15.
The upsurge in violence prompted Sir Ian Blair, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, to call on parents to ask their teenage children if they were carrying a knife. In this month alone London has also seen the fatal stabbings of Jimmy Mizen, 16, in Lee, and Lyle Tulloch, 15, in Peckham. The 14 young deaths in the capital since the start of the year is the worst toll on record.
