Un réfrigérateur à l'origine de l'incendie de la tour Grenfell — Londres

Alors que les causes de l'immense incendie dans une tour à logements de Londres commençaient à se préciser, vendredi, la police de la métropole britannique a dit qu'elle envisageait de déposer des accusations d'homicide involontaire relativement à ce drame qui a fait au moins 79 victimes. Mais quelque 200 habitants de l'ensemble Chalcots Estate ont refusé de quitter leur domicile, certains d'entre eux souffrant d'agoraphobie, a déclaré Georgia Gould, la responsable de la municipalité de Camden.

Les autorités locales et les pompiers ont été avertis de ces résultats et ont commencé à prendre des mesures pour sécuriser les bâtiments et informer leurs habitants, a-t-elle ajouté. "Tout ce qui nous importe est de mettre les gens en sécurité, pendant que nous procédons à ces travaux urgents".

Les travaux devraient durer "de deux à quatre semaines". Les autorités ont estimé que les habitants n'étaient pas en sécurité.

Devant le parlement, jeudi matin, la Première ministre britannique Theresa May avait déclaré que son gouvernement avait "ordonné l'examen des revêtements de tous les immeubles" de logements sociaux gérés par les pouvoirs publics dans le pays.

SCOTUS to rule on case involving same-sex wedding cake in Colorado
An Oregon bakery was ordered to pay $135,000 in damages in 2015 after refusing to bake a cake for a 2013 same-sex wedding. The Supreme Court adjourned for the summer Monday, but not before it handed a victory to President Donald Trump .

Vendredi des survivants de l'incendie, des proches des victimes et des membres de la communauté locale ont envahi la mairie de quartier de Kensington et Chelsea (ouest de Londres), où se trouve la tour, aux cris de "Honte à vous!" et de "Theresa May, il est temps de partir".

Le ministre des Entreprises Greg Clark a souligné que l'appareil incriminé, le modèle FF175BP fabriqué par Whirpool, était soumis à des tests approfondis pour déterminer pourquoi il avait pris feu.

Il a par ailleurs appelé les propriétaires de modèles FF175BP et FF175BG à se faire connaître auprès de ses services. Mais le bilan pourrait encore s'alourdir.

Un porte-parole de l'hôpital du King's College a confirmé à l'AFP que trois des blessés de la tour avaient été traités avec du Cyanokit, un antidote au cyanure d'hydrogène, sans pouvoir toutefois préciser si c'était à titre de précaution ou de traitement.
