A 19-year-old youth, who has not been named, suffered multiple stab wounds in Edmonton, north London.
Later on Thursday two men in their 20s were killed in attacks a few miles away in Leyton and Walthamstow, east London. A man in his 40s died from stab wounds after being found at the back of a disused pub in Tottenham High Road, Tottenham, north London.
