DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. June 15, 2017, 1:19 PM (IDT)

In a statement to the media on Thursday morning, London Metropolitan Police Commander Stuart Cundy said that 17 people are now confirmed dead from the devastating fire that ripped through Grenfell Tower the previous day, with 37 others hospitalized including 17 in critical condition. He declined to specify the number of people still accounted for. Cundy also said there is no evidence that the blaze was related to terrorism.
Meanwhile, after visiting the site of the disaster, British Prime Minister Theresa May announced that she had ordered a full public inquiry.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
