Somali parents living in London reveal they are sending their children back to Africa  because of the knife-crime epidemic
Somali parents living in London reveal they are sending their children back to war-torn Africa - because it's safer than facing the capital's knife-crime epidemic


Islington mayor, Rakhia Ismail, estimates that two in five Somalian families send their children to East Africa  to avoid knife crime. One Somali mother, Amina told how her 15-year-old boy was stabbed four times just 17 days after returning to the UK from a year-long stint in Somali land. His mother said: 'He was safer there than he was here, 100 per cent more safe than in London.' Jamal Hassan a mentor of young Somali men in London, said: 'If it means that child doesn't finish school, college, university or he will not have a good job by the time you come for them the future is not really important. What is important is that child's life.'Somali parents living in London reveal they are sending their children back to Africa  because of the knife-crime epidemic
