  The story of Halford's 'flute boy', and what it tells us about the European trade in human remains At the height of the French Revolution in the late 1700s, a boy sat on the steps of the Notre-Dame cathedral playing a lilting tune on his wooden recorder.

"Fares's family are, of course, absolutely devastated," he said. "I have assured them of my total commitment to bringing to justice those responsible for this senseless killing.

A close friend of Fares said he was not involved in any gang activity in the area.

The tearful 15-year-old said: "He was really nice. He had nothing to do with the gang stuff around here.

"He would just be there for you. If you ever needed him he would be there. He was happy. He loved life."

A small group of young people gathered next to the tributes, hugging and comforting each other.

Think You’ve Seen the Best of LA? You Might’ve Missed this Neighborhood

  Think You’ve Seen the Best of LA? You Might’ve Missed this Neighborhood This is the latest in our series on underrated destinations, It’s Still a Big World. The busiest intersection in the world is Japan’s Shibuya crossing; it’s fascinating to watch from above the way tiny people weave in and out on foot, just walking—never talking—and always with a destination in mind. A sharp contrast to Tokyo, nobody really walks in Los Angeles. This is a city built around cars, so it’s no surprise to find the busiest freeway interchange in the world a stone’s throw from Downtown LA. The East LA Interchange runs through Boyle Heights, a historic, multicultural borough just east of the Los Angeles River and a 10-minute drive from hipster Silver Lake.

A member of staff at the restaurant said a FedEx worker, an off-duty police officer and a woman had all rushed to the teenager's aid as he lay in the street outside the restaurant.

"They were just shouting at him 'wake up, wake up, try to breath'," he said, adding that someone started chest compressions while he called 999.

"Three or four of us were all shouting loudly 'one, two, three', so there was a rhythm for compression."

He said the victim, wearing a school uniform, was "totally blacked out", adding: "I was hoping he would end up in hospital and stay alive."

Police asked anyone with information to call the incident room on 020 8345 1570 or to contact Crimestoppers anonymously.
