Jaden was stabbed to death on January 8 in Leyton, east London, after a group of five men in a black Mercedes rammed him off a moped, police believe.

Three of the men are thought to have got out of the vehicle before Jaden was knifed, then all five suspects fled in the car.

Majdouline, dressed in a grey tracksuit, is also charged with possession of a bladed article, namely a knife.

He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on Wednesday.
