79 believed to have died in London high-rise fire

Speaking to journalists after attending a church service in the shadow of the burned out tower block this morning, Khan said the fire that is believed to have claimed at least 58 lives was a "preventable accident".

British officials say they are helping the Syrian family of the first officially confirmed victim of the London tower blaze - 23-year-old Mohammad Alhajali - to "travel to the U.K.in these terribly sad circumstances".

They said they would provide an updated figure on Monday. Police had previously put the death toll at 30. "So that 58 would include that 30", he said. "There is also insufficient support for victims on the ground".

"My understanding is the cladding in question, this flammable cladding which is banned in Europe and the U.S., is also banned here", Chancellor Philip Hammond said in a BBC interview. "They didn't. They left him". But we may well need help from our close neighbours.

A prominent British Labour Party lawmaker is calling for police and the government to seize all documents relating to the renovation of a London high-rise destroyed by a fire that killed dozens of its residents. She also says she will receive daily reports from the stricken neighborhood.

Trump should veto new Russian Federation sanctions
Addressing reporters in Berlin on June 16, German government spokesman Steffen Seibert described the US move as "peculiar". Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared to express concern about the bill this week in a House Foreign Affairs hearing.

The disaster has prompted an outpouring of generosity, with shocked Londoners donating so many clothes, shoes and bedsheets that volunteers were soon overwhelmed.

It followed a separate, smaller protest at Kensington Town Hall, where residents tried to air their grievances to councillors. "It's because that tower was such an eyesore for these people in very expensive houses just opposite", she said.

"As recent awful events in London and Manchester have brought to light, Blue Light workers do an extremely challenging job, encountering hard and traumatic situations", he said. "This is an absolutely terrible fire that took place", May said.
