Grenfell Tower was covered in insulation banned in other countries, official says

Grenfell Tower used banned insulationInsulating panels added to the Grenfell Tower during an energy-efficiency renovation are banned in the U.S., U.K. and Germany on large buildings, a top-ranking British official said Sunday, questioning whether the panels played a major role in a fatal high-rise fire.

Speaking on BBC television, Chancellor Phillip Hammond said multiple formal inquiries are underway following the June 14 fire at the 24-story residential building, which killed at least 58 people. Video taken by witnesses during the fire shows flames racing up the outside of the building, where the insulating panels, known as cladding, were. Investigators say the burning panels may have acted like a chimney, making the fire more intense.

Hammond said investigations will determine why the supposedly banned panels were installed on a residential building, and who was responsible for the decision.

Palestinians reject ISIS claim in Jerusalem attackPalestinian groups have rejected ISIL's claim of responsibility for Friday's attacks in Jerusalem, which left one Israeli police officer killed and resulted in Israeli soldiers killing three Palestinians.

It is the first attack in Israeli-occupied territory claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, known as ISIS) group. But the statement it released on Saturday appeared to have major discrepancies with Friday's events.
