We are grief stricken by London Tower Inferno :
We are feeling deep shock and sorrow by the incident at the Grenfell Tower in London, the twenty four storey building which was engulfed by fire. It was like hell breaking loose, the fire spread swiftly, devouring everything on its path. Police said that at least 30 people have been confirmed killed and dozens more are feared dead in the tragic event and more than 70 are unaccounted for.
We pray and hope that those unaccounted people are alive and safe.
We pray to The Almighty Creator to save mankind from this sort of horrible fate.
