Syrian refugee Mohammed al-Haj Ali died in the fire.

The 23-year-old student fled the civil war in Syria only to die in a tower block in London.

After he was trapped on the 14th floor, Ali was reported to have sent text messages to his family, including one that said: "The fire is here, goodbye."

His friend Abdulaziz Almashi, co-founder of UK-based Syrian Solidarity Campaign, said: "He survived Assad, the war in Syria, only to die in a tower block in London. There are no words."

Ali's older brother, Omar, became separated from him as they escaped the burning building. He survived the fire.

His family were granted visas to travel from Syria to the UK to attend his funeral after almost 100,000 people signed an online petition.

Visual artist Khadija Saye, also known as Ya-Haddy Sisi Saye, died in the blaze, the coroner has confirmed.

She lived on the 20th floor of Grenfell Tower with her mother, Mary Mendy, who is still missing.

Labour MP David Lammy, a close family friend, reported that Saye and her mother were missing last week. After her death was confirmed, he wrote on Twitter: "May you rest in peace Khadija Saye. God bless your beautiful soul. My heart breaks today. I mourn the tragic loss of a wonderful young woman."

The work of the talented 24-year-old on Gambian spiritual rituals is currently being exhibited at the Venice Biennale.

Saye had excitedly shared the news of her exhibition on Facebook several months ago: "It's been a real journey, tears shed, highs and lows, but mama, I'm an artist exhibiting at the Venice Biennale and the blessings are abundant!"
