Benji murder case arrests

Six people were last night being questioned by Greater Manchester Police over the murder of Benji Stanley, 14, who was shot as he queued in a take-away food shop in Moss Side four months ago.

They were among 13 people arrested in raids by officers, some of them armed, on homes in the city early yesterday in connection with inquiries into armed robberies. One of those held, a 21-year-old man, has been charged with an unconnected attempted murder.
