Les dons affluent pour les sinistrés — Londres

18 Juin, 2017, 06:25 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

"Cinquante-huit personnes dont on nous a dit qu'elles étaient dans le tour Grenfell cette nuit-là sont portées disparues et je dois par conséquent présumer avec tristesse qu'elles sont mortes", a déclaré le chef de la police londonienne, Stuart Cundy, lors d'une déclaration à la presse. Cela porte le bilan à 58 morts, un chiffre susceptible de changer, 70 personnes étant toujours portées disparues.

Dans la nuit du 13 au 14 juin, un incendie a ravagé la tour Grenfell, un immeuble de logements sociaux de l'ouest de Londres dans lequel vivaient près de 600 personnes. COLÈRE CONTRE LA RÉPONSE DES AUTORITÉS Le drame se double d'une nouvelle controverse politique visant Theresa May, déjà fragilisée au moment d'entamer les négociations du Brexit avec les Européens par la perte de sa majorité absolue à la Chambre des communes à l'issue des législatives anticipées du 8 juin qu'elle avait convoquées dans l'espoir d'obtenir un mandat "fort et stable".

Au moins six Marocains figurent parmi les victimes de l'incendie, a annoncé samedi le ministère marocain des Affaires étrangères.

La gestion de l'incendie meurtrier met la première ministre britannique à l'épreuve. Les autorités locales sont accusées de ne pas avoir entendu les cris d'alerte concernant la sécurité du bâtiment de 24 étages, parce qu'ils provenaient d'une population majoritairement modeste.

Mis en cause aussi, le revêtement récemment installé l'an dernier sur la façade, qui aurait favorisé la propagation de l'incendie.

L'ancienne performance remonte à 2016 et était détenue par 300 Philippines qui avaient fait simultanément la vaisselle lors d'un événement qui était organisé par une marque de produits ménagers.


Theresa May a rendu visite vendredi à des blessés à l'hôpital. La veille, elle s'était rendue sur les lieux du drame pour rencontrer pompiers et policiers, mais n'était pas allée à la rencontre des habitants, qui le lui reprochent violemment depuis. Une photo montrant le président américain en train de contempler la zone dévastée à travers un hublot était devenue le symbole d'une administration déconnectée de la réalité.

"Theresa May a eu trop peur de rencontrer les survivants de Grenfell. Elle est finie", affirmait le quotidien. Sentant le vent du boulet, Mme May est retournée sur place vendredi après-midi, où elle a été conspuée. "Le pays a connu une succession d'horribles tragédies", a-t-elle ajouté.

Elle a confirmé la distribution d'un fonds de 5 millions de livres (5,7 millions d'euros) annoncé vendredi, pour que "les gens puissent s'acheter des vêtements, de la nourriture et ce qui est essentiel".

Dans ce climat de deuil, la reine Elizabeth II a adressé à ses sujets un message d'une gravité inhabituelle alors qu'ont lieu les célébrations pour son 91e anniversaire.
