Police investigating a house fire in which a mother and her three children died have made a further arrest.
A 22-year-old man was arrested in Leicester in connection with the investigation and he remains in police custody, Leicestershire Police said.
Seven men have already been charged with murder in connection with the blaze in Wood Hill, Leicester, on Friday September 13. They have been remanded into custody to appear in court at a later date.
Shenila Taufiq, 47, her daughter Zainab, 19, and sons Bilal, 17, and Jamil, 15 all died when flames engulfed their home in Wood Hill in the early hours of September 13.
Detectives have been examining possible links between the suspected arson attack and the fatal stabbing of youth football coach Antoin Akpom in Leicester on September 12.
