London tower toll rises to 79

London tower toll rises to 79

Providing an update on the situation Monday morning, police said that the death toll may rise further.

He said that five of the dead had been formally identified and it would be a slow and painstaking task to identify the others.

That number may change as investigators continue to search the remains of Grenfell Tower. The job's contractor has said the work met all fire standards.

Over the past few days, another five people who had been reported missing in the fire have been found to be safe and well, Cundy said, saying he's "so grateful" for the news.

"If I identify.an issue that is a risk to public safety, we will be sharing that immediately with the relevant authorities", he said.

He said: "We must also prepare people for the bad reality that some people may not be identified due to the intensity of the fire".

"In the wake of (the) Grenfell fire, we have to recognize that something has gone badly, badly wrong in this country, that predominantly poor people die in a towering inferno because possibly in the long term (there had been a) lack of public investment", Corbyn told broadcaster ITV.

The 23-year-old Alhajali is the only victim of the Grenfell Tower fire to be officially named as the hard process of identifying human remains continues.

His family said Alhajali "came to the United Kingdom because he had ambitions and aims for his life and for his family".

The visit is seen as an early step in the negotiation process. "My guess is that they won't", he maintained. Both Kushner and Greenblatt will meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem and P.A.

Distressed women were seen hugging after the silence.

Khan described the fire as a "preventable accident that didn't need to happen", adding that the "tragedy we're seeing is a effect of the mistakes and neglect from politicians from the council and from the government".

The National Health Service said that 17 patients were still being treated in hospital, of whom nine remain in critical condition.

London police have begun releasing images of the burnt-out tower's interior.

The meeting is unlikely to quell complaints that May has been slow to reach out to fire survivors, despite her announcement of a $6.4 million emergency fund to help the displaced families.

A British lawmaker has warned of a possible cover-up over the recent London tower fire, calling on Prime Minister Theresa May to quickly gather all available documents about the incident before they are deliberately "destroyed". Pipes are exposed at crooked angles, and parts of the walls are completely blackened.

Burnt objects including baths, ovens, washing machines, and what looks to be an exercise bike, can be made out amongst the fragments.

All the images were taken in units where police know that everyone inside has been accounted for.
