A teenager who murdered an A-level student as he tried to recover a stolen smartphone has been jailed for a minimum of 13 years.

17 year old Dogan Ismail, suffered a single stab wound to the heart as he tried to get back a BlackBerry robbed from another 15-year-old during an altercation two days earlier.

15 year old Dawda Jallow, from Peckham (pictured), has been ordered to serve at least 13 years of a life sentence after he was found guilty of murder by a jury.

Before passing sentence at the Old Bailey, Judge Christopher Moss took the unusual step of lifting an order granting him anonymity as a minor.

The judge told Jallow that the attack was carried out with "force and ferocity" but added that he could not be sure whether he intended to kill his victim.
