Have your say

THE ANGUISH on the faces of these young men is plain to see.

They are mourning the death of 16-year-old Irfan Wahid, the second young man in a few weeks to be to be killed on the streets of our city.

Both killings happened in the afternoon as people should have been free to go about their lives without fear.

Each death leaves families, friends and communities shattered. One death is too many. This is why the YEP is today getting behind West Yorkshire Police’s weapons amnesty.

We are backing our readers and the friends of young Irfan who, despite their grief, called for peace and for people to put aside their differences.
