More than 4,000 people sign petition calling Mohammed and Omar al-Haj Ali’s parents to be allowed to travel to Britain
Thousands of people have signed an online petition to get the parents of two Syrian refugees affected by the Grenfell fire, one killed and the other injured, to the UK.
Mohammed al-Haj Ali, 24, an engineering student who fled Syria three years ago, was the first victim to be identified. He is believed to have died in the blaze. His older brother Omar, a 25-year-old business student, was taken to hospital after escaping the blaze. He stayed in contact with Mohammed, who was still trapped inside the flat.
