Three British men are said to either be missing or dead, after the Hamas attack on Israel.

Nathanel Young, 20, was killed while serving in the Israel Defense Forces, his sister, Gaby Shalev, says on Facebook. His death was later confirmed by the Israeli embassy in London.

British photographer Danny Darlington, who lived in Berlin, and his German girlfriend, Carolin Bohl, have not been heard from after they hid out in a bunker at Kibbutz Nir Oz, according to Sam Pasquesi, who is Bohl’s brother-in-law.

Pasquesi says his family learned today from a man working at the kibbutz that the bodies of the two had been identified.

Jake Marlow, 26, had been providing security at a music festival near Kibbutz Re’im when he called his mother, Lisa, before dawn to say rockets were flying overhead. He texted her an hour later but that was the last she heard from him, she tells Jewish News. The Israeli embassy in London did not know whether Marlowe “was taken hostage or dead or in a hospital,” a spokesperson says.

In additional, a French citizen, a 20-year-old IDF soldier, has been confirmed killed, according to a French diplomat. Several more French citizens are still missing, says the official.
