Seven guilty of murdering teenage law student in botched drive-by shooting


Seven men have been found guilty of murdering a law student who was mistakenly gunned down in a botched drive-by shooting. Tyre firm boss Feroz Suleman, 40, arranged the execution of a rival businessman in broad daylight but the gunman he hired instead shot dead innocent passer-by Aya Hachem. The 19-year-old was said to be "in the wrong place at the wrong time" as the long-running feud between the neighbouring tyre companies culminated in Blackburn, Lancashire, on the afternoon of May 17 last year.
