Fatal stabbing on London's Oxford Street

Text size Aa Aa

In Britain, the first day of the so-called January sales turned to tragedy after a man was stabbed to death on London’s busy Oxford Street.

Police believe the 18-year-old died after rivalry between two groups of teenagers turned violent.

As many as 11 people were arrested following the stabbing, just hours after stores re-opened from the Christmas holidays.

Tens of thousands of people battled against a public transport strike in the British capital to reach the first day of the sales.

Several stores closed for the day after the stabbing.

Later, a second man was left with leg wounds after another stabbing incident on the same street.

Police said it was too early to say if both incidences were linked.
