A 30-year-old man, from Barking, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder in Antwerp, Belgium, on Tuesday.
Police detained a second 22-year-old man, also from Barking, on suspicion of murder in the same city the next day.
It is after two men were stabbed in a street close to Elephant & Castle Underground station on Sunday, 1 September.
Norman Bertran-Tavarez, aged 24, died in hospital the next day as a result of his injuries. Another 25-year-old was seriously injured but later released from hospital.
Both suspects will appear in court in Belgium before being extradited back to the UK.
“This is a pleasing development in our ongoing investigation into the tragic death of a man, and violent assault of another, in a London Underground station,” said Detective Chief Inspector, Sam Blackburn.
“Thanks to our colleagues in Belgium, we have now detained two men who will extradited to the United Kingdom.”
Two 20-year-old men, both from Southwark, arrested at the time of the attack have both been released without further action.Tags: Barking, Barking and Dagenham
