...but it seems you can't take Somalia out of the boys.
Yesterday Mrs Abdi called for anyone carrying a blade to be 'taken off the streets'. She spoke of her agony after her elder son and nephew, both 20, were also killed within a mile of each other in London in separate attacks.
She demanded tough action on knife crime as Scotland Yard Commissioner Cressida Dick said the 'senseless waste of life' cannot continue.Yet it shows no signs of stopping. And you're all out of ideas, aren't you?
Yesterday the family released a statement saying: 'This is now the constant theme in our community. We are made to believe that the police are here to protect us, but how does a mother feel her kids are protected when she has lost two in the same vicinity within months? We have lots of questions and need answers. Somebody has to listen to us.'Maybe those aren't questions you should be asking the police. Maybe you should be asking your 'community'. Or your sons?
After all, the police are treating only one as 'mistaken identity'.
