Oxford revenge arson: Family visits victims' grave for first time

The family of two children killed in a revenge arson attack in 1997 have visited their grave for the first time in 17 years.

Majid Khan, 15, and his sister Anum, aged eight, were killed in a house fire in Oxford in 1997.

Eight people took part in the arson including Fiaz Munshi, who was earlier jailed for 13 years after being found guilty of manslaughter.

She had been in a relationship with the children's brother Amjad Khan but he had ended it, leaving her wanting revenge.

In a statement after the sentencing, Shenaz Akhtar, the victims' sister, described Munshi as "evil".

Det Insp Craig Kirby said her role in the killings was "fundamental".

BBC Oxford's Peter Cooke reports.
