BREAKING... Syrian refugee identified as one of those killed in Grenfell Tower fire tragedy as number of fatalities rise to 17

Civil engineering student Mohammed Alhajali phoned a friend to say goodbye
The first victim of the Grenfell Tower tragedy to be indentified has been named as 23-year-old Syrian refugee Mohammed Alhajali.
After attempting to flee the flat with his older brother Omar, the pair became separated and Mr Alhajali returned upstairs to his 14th floor flat.
The 23-year-old  who was studying civil engineering at a London University fled death in his war-torn country "only to meet it here in the UK", says a fellow peace activist.

Meanwhile, first photos from the interior of the ravaged tower block have emerged amid speculation that some of the victims will never be identified.
Six victims were identified today bringing the official number of fatalities to 17.
