At least 10 Britons killed in Israel-Hamas conflict -UK minister

LONDON (Reuters) -At least 10 British nationals have been killed in the conflict between Israel and Hamas and a further six remain missing, junior British finance minister Victoria Atkins told Times Radio on Tuesday.

In a separate interview, Atkins said the government believed those six Britons were being held hostage.

“They are our absolute priority,” she told Sky News.

Hamas on Monday said it had freed two Israeli women who were among the more than 200 hostages taken during its Oct. 7 rampage in southern Israel.
