A 21-year-old man has been charged with the murder of father-of-two Zakaria Abukar Sharif Ali outside a Shoreditch bar.
Tyla Goupal, of Islington, was charged in the early hours of this morning after being extradited from Cyprus, where he was arrested on October 23.
He was set to appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court today.
Zakaria, 26, had just left Rolling Stock in Kingsland Road at about 6.30am on November 24 when he tried to break up a fight outside and was knifed. He died in hospital hours later, one of eight people killed in Hackney last year.
In the weeks after his death, friends of Zakaria raised almost £20,000 to pay for his funeral and support his wife and two young children.
