Scepticism grows about official death toll

Coroner Wilcox is reported in the Guardian as describing the "complexity of identifying victims as inquests open and scepticism about the official death toll grows."

"`Paulos, one of the youngest of the victims so far, lived with his family on the 18th floor and was found on the 13th floor`, Wilcox said. He was identified by dental records and his preliminary cause of death was given as inhalation of fire fumes."

"The hearing came as the estimated death toll remained at 79, a number authorities have consistently said is likely to rise."

"Let`s have a look at what local residents have been saying to the UK Column. [19 June 2017] They say that more than 50 children are dead. They say that local schools are actually closed and this makes it very difficult for parents and the community to actually find out what has happened with children, or numbers of children, who may have died. Local people are saying that they believe the total death toll is now over 300. And they believe that many if not most of those who have died are in fact Muslims."

"The authorities are still not admitting or clarifying the scale of the disaster and on Sunday 18 June 2017 hundreds were on the streets locally, many dressed in their Sunday best in respect, but there was no media reporting..."
