A teenager who was stabbed to death last week has been laid to rest in Dublin.

Azzam Raguragui died after being stabbed in Finsbury Park, Dundrum last Friday night.

The 18-year-old was taken to St James's Hospital, but pronounced dead a short time later.

His family and friends gathered for a service at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Dublin earlier.

He was then laid to rest in Newcastle Cemetery.

In a statement on Monday, his parents Abderrahmane Raguragui and Hajiba Elouaddaf thanked those involved in the investigation.

"An Garda Síochána are leading in the investigation to uncover the truth behind our son Azzam Raguragui’s murder and we are resting our faith in the Irish Justice system to hold the perpetrator(s) to account."

"We are grateful for the community support we have received."

"At this critical time we would like to request some space and privacy to allow us to grieve as a family," they said.

A male teenager presented himself at a south Dublin Garda station last Saturday afternoon.
