Two men have been found not guilty of murdering two teenagers in an alleyway shooting in Milton Keynes.

Brahim Hajji, a 26 year old Dutch national and Ahmed Ahmed, 20, from Milton Keynes, have been acquitted of the murders of the Somali youths during an argument over drugs three years ago.

Nineteen year old Mohammed Abdi Farah and Amin Ahmed, 18, were each shot in the head in what the prosecution described as an "execution."

The acquittals came after two other young men in their early 20s were convicted of the murders in January 2013.

Fuad Awale, said to have been the man who pulled the trigger, was sentenced to 38 years behind bars and his accomplice, Sharmake Abulkadir, was jailed for 32 years.
