UK royals hold London fire minute of silence

At least 30 people were killed in Wednesday's inferno, which left Grenfell Tower a charred hulk.

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.

"Put to the test, the United Kingdom has been resolute in the face of adversity", she said.

But public anger has been swelling, with furious residents heckling May and storming the local authority headquarters on Friday.

Mr Khan said: "People are angry, not simply at the poor response in the days afterwards from the council and the government, but at the years of neglect from the council". Grief turned to outrage Friday amid reports that materials used in the building's renovation could have fueled the i.

Police have been struggling to come up with a list of who was in the building when the fire started, making it hard to determine how many died.

Cundy said the images and video of the scenes inside the Grenfell Tower would be released on Sunday, adding "We will not do that until we have contacted all the families we are supporting to let them know that's our intention".

The area surrounding the council-owned tower has been plastered by desperate relatives with pictures of the missing, from grandparents to young children, and large numbers of volunteers were assisting survivors.

Morocco said seven of its nationals were among the dead.

Pakistan 'pressure' got to India, says Kohli
With the bat in hand, India found themselves under early pressure after losing both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma for just 6 runs. India , the defending champions, were never in the game after falling to 33-3 and then 54-5 in their chase of Pakistan's 338-4.

The move follows widespread criticism of the local Kensington and Chelsea Council's performance as residents of the 24-storey Grenfell Tower, which was engulfed in fire early on Wednesday, condemned the relief efforts and lack of information.

The local Grenfell Action Group had claimed, before and during a major 10-million-pound refurbishment of Grenfell Tower a year ago, that the block constituted a fire risk and residents had warned that access to the site for emergency vehicles was "severely restricted".

The prime minister said residents would be given £500 in cash followed by a bank payment for the rest of the funds.

"[This aims] to give the victims the immediate support they need to care for themselves and for loved ones", Ms May said.

A fire department spokesman said crews are working to secure the debris so that two subway lines could be reopened as soon as possible.

Prime Minister Theresa May met with victims of the disaster at Downing Street on Saturday, before declaring that the support given to families in the aftermath of the tragedy was "not good enough". Everyone displaced will be housed nearby within three weeks, she promised.

Cundy said police had now managed to get to the top of the tower and had undertaken a first visual search for victims, ahead of later painstaking searches.

Dozens of police officers held back booing crowds and broke up scuffles as her auto drove off from local church, where she had met survivors, residents and volunteers and promised new funds for those affected.

The monarch stood for a minute's silence before her 91st birthday parade on Saturday.
