    Funeral for Mohammed Alhajali, a Syrian refugee killed in London’s Grenfell Tower blaze, took place on Wednesday.

    Prime Minister Theresa May has apologised for the poor initial response to last week's blaze which killed at least 79 people.

    The UK government has acquired 68 flats in a luxury development in London to rehouse survivors of the fire.

    Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego reports from London.
