Two men have been charged with murder after a Muslim man was stabbed to death in Oldham after leaving prayers at his local mosque.
Mohammed Nabeel Hassan was fatally injured on Friday afternoon. He suffered stab wounds and was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Oldham men Mohammed Jama, 20, and Musa Jama, 22, have been charged with murder and the possession of a bladed weapon.
Police said: “Officers were called at around 3.20pm on Friday, March 9, to reports that a man was unconscious and not breathing on Waterloo Street. Officers attended and discovered Mohammed Nabeel Hassan with a single stab wound. He was taken to hospital where he sadly died.”
