A TEENAGER accused of striking two students with a bottle in a bar brawl in Oxford has been cleared.

Kreshnik Pali, 19, denied two counts of unlawful wounding and was cleared by jurors at Oxford Crown Court yesterday.

Students Charles Noble-Mundin and Daniel Pitchford, part of a 30-strong pub crawl, were injured in the Que Pasa bar in New Road on November 9, 2009.

Pali, of Borrowmead Road, Northway, denied having a bottle and said he acted in self defence as students attacked him.
