THIS is the horrifying moment a teenage boy was stabbed to death in front of horrified KFC diners.
Sickening CCTV footage shows Youssef Karim Hasan Al-Bayjani being knifed outside the fast food restaurant on Tuesday afternoon.
He was the seventh person to be murdered in London in just nine days – and the 21st teenager killed this year.
The clip shows a gang of youths arguing in the restaurant’s doorway, before Al-Bayjani is pushed to the ground and stabbed several times.
His attackers then flee down the road as he staggers to the floor.
Paying tribute at the scene, a pal said: “He had a really good heart.
He’s an angel and he’s in heaven now, a better place than here
“On the day some boys were trying to mess with me, he stopped them and that was just about half an hour before it happened.
A relative added: “He’s an angel and he’s in heaven now, a better place than here.”
“We’re just praying that this has to stop. No-one can really grieve because you just have to pretend it hasn’t happened.”
DCI Andy Partridge, from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command, said: “This awful attack took place in broad daylight in a busy part of central London.
