- Fahad Nur, 18, was stabbed to death outside Cardiff University on June 2
- Brothers Abdulgalil Aldobhani, 22, and Mustafa Aldobhani, 21, jailed for life
- Their friend Shafique Shaddad, 25, was also jailed for the 'brutal attack' in Cardiff
Three men have been jailed for life today for stabbing an 18-year-old man to death in a 'brutal attack' outside a university.
Fahad Nur, 18, suffered 21 horrific knife wounds after he was chased into a lane next to Cardiff University by Abdulgalil Aldobhani, 22, his brother Mustafa, 21, and friend Shafique Shaddad, 25.
The two brothers and their friend chased Mr Nur through the streets before trapping him in a lane in a 'calculated pursuit'.
Prosecutor Michael Jones QC said: 'They chased their 18-year-old victim through the streets before trapping him in a lane and then stabbing him to death.
'He had in effect been cut off and corralled into that lane.
'This was a determined and calculated pursuit and a relentless, determined and brutal attack.
'Such was the ferocity of the attack that he sustained 21 knife wounds.'
Cardiff Crown Court heard students at the university found Mr Nur bloodied in the alley and doormen from the nearby Students Union rushed to carry out CPR.
The teenager had been stabbed through the heart and could not be saved after the attack in the early hours of June 2.
The court heard Abdulgalil Aldobhani later tried to flee to Morocco after the killing - but was arrested at Heathrow Airport with his girlfriend.
Shaddad, was arrested three days later but the Aldobhanis fled first to Birmingham before travelling to Heathrow.
Abdulgalil Aldobhani was arrested at Terminal Two with his girlfriend Aseel Arar, 35, who had purchased them one-way tickets to Morocco.
The court heard wraps of drugs and £780 in cash was found on Fahad's clothes.
Mustafa Aldobhani, Abdulgalil Aldobhani, and Shaddad, all of Cardiff, were found guilty of murder after a nine week trial.
Arar, of Brimingham, was convicted of assisting an offender.
Mustafa Aldobhani was jailed for life with a minimum term of 22-and-a-half years.
Abdulgalil Aldobhani was jailed for life with a minimum term of 24 years and Shaddad was jailed for life with a minimum term of 23 years.
Judge Mr Justice Hillard said: 'Fahad Nur was stabbed 21 times, including to his chest, back and legs.
'One wound went right through his left hand. The fatal stab wound was to his heart.
'In my judgement this was a very tight knit joint enterprise indeed. Everyone was playing an important part for the common purpose.'
