Five more held over Rhys Jones murder
LONDON (Reuters) - Five more teenagers, including two girls, have been arrested in connection with the murder of Rhys Jones, police said on Saturday.
Three boys aged, 15, 16, and 19 and two girls aged 15 and 18 were arrested in Liverpool, a Merseyside Police spokesman said.
The 11-year-old schoolboy was shot dead outside a pub in the Croxteth area of Liverpool on Wednesday in an attack that Prime Minister Gordon Brown called a "heinous crime".
On Friday, police arrested a 15-year-old boy on suspicion of Rhys's murder. Two others, aged 14 and 18, have been bailed.
