A 21-year-old Egyptian citizen residing in the United Kingdom, Sherif Adel Habib, died in hospital in the early hours of Monday after suffering severe burn wounds.

Habib, reported British media, was rescued from inside a collapsed garage that had been set ablaze. However, Habib died in hospital where he had been rushed to a specialist burns unit.

According to Egypt’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Egyptian Embassy in London was notified of the death by the Coptic Orthodox Church. The Foreign Ministry said that it is following the case closely and that it would provide legal support to the family of Habib, reported Al-Ahram.

On Monday, British media reported that a 21-year-old was taken to hospital after suffering burn wounds from a “suspected arson attack”. The fire occurred at Cranleigh Gardens in Southall and lasted for several hours.

Shortly after the victim’s death in hospital, the Metropolitan Police’s spokesperson told British media that a suspect had been arrested “on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life”.

The suspect, in his 20s, has since been bailed while detectives conduct further investigations.
