Amir Khan Pays His Respect To Two Fallen Children

Former champion Amir Khan was among thousands of mourners at the funeral yesterday of two brothers who died in a Christmas Day crash on the M6.

Adnan Habib, ten, and Arsalaan, four, were killed when the car they were in crashed close to junction 15, near Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

The brothers, described by their family as “precious jewels”, died alongside their 32-year-old aunt ­Bushra Tazarib.

More than 2,000 people attended the funeral at a mosque in High ­Wycombe, Bucks.

Hundreds spilled into the street and prayed in pouring rain.

Khan was at the same wedding the three ­victims were travelling to on Christmas Day and said the ­occasion turned from “joyous to despair” as news of the ­tragedy spread.
