TWO young men have been found not guilty of the murder of a man in South Hampstead.

Cabdullahi Hassan, 20, was stabbed five times on July 25 near Ainsworth House on the Alexandra and Ainsworth estate and died at St Mary’s Hospital.

Amil Choudhury, 20 and Mohammed Mahir Miah, 20, both from Westminster, were charged with murder of Mr Hassan and with attempted murder against Mr Hassan’s 22-year-old cousin.

There were alternate charges of manslaughter and wounding intent. Both denied the charges.

Today (Wednesday), a jury at the Old Bailey acquitted both of all charges.
