Prayers said for Wood Hill fire death family

Prayers have been said for a family who died in a fire following a suspected arson attack at their home in Leicester.

Sheikh Ibrahim Mogra, a Leicester imam, said the family were regular worshippers at the Jame Mosque in Asfordby Street.

Earlier, the mosque said prayers for Shehnila Taufiq, her daughter Zainab Taufiq and her sons Jamal Taufiq and Bilal Taufiq.

Family friend Zeeshan Bawany said the children's father, who was working in Ireland, "couldn't believe what was being said to him" when he was told what had happened.
