Mr. Mohammed denies suffocating his young son and daughter and trying to murder their mother

A father has denied suffocating his two children before setting fire to the family home.

Endris Mohammed, from Birmingham, pleaded not guilty to killing Saros Endris, aged eight, and his six-year-old sister Leanor after their ‘lifeless’ bodies were pulled from the blaze last October.

He also pleaded not guilty to attempting to murder their mother Penil Teklehaimanot.
