Leicester fire deaths: Father praises 'extraordinary' family

A man who lost his wife and three children in an arson attack in Leicester has praised his "extraordinary family".

Shehnila Taufiq, 47, daughter Zainab, 19, and sons Bilal, 17, and Jamal, 15 died in a house fire in Leicester in the early hours of 13 September.

On Monday, two men were found guilty of their murders. Five other men and a teenager were convicted of manslaughter.

Dr Muhammad Taufiq Al Sattar - a paediatric neurosurgeon who was working in Dublin at the time of the attack on his family home - said he did not "hate" the killers, but hated their crime.
