Suspects in gang links.

THE four teenagers arrested on suspicion of murdering Ben are linked to a fearsome drug dealing and gun running gang called The Untouchables.

Officers yesterday revealed that they found two knives around Islington where Ben died and are testing them to see if they are the murder weapon.

They arrested the suspects, all in their late teens, in Islington, Chadwell Heath and Bethnal Green.

They were last night being held at police stations across the North and East of the capital.

The Untouchables have close ties to Kilburn, Camden and Islington, North London, where Ben was stabbed to death. Police have tried to clean up the areas. Five hundred officers raided 20 addresses in April last year and seized pounds 200,000 of cocaine.
