- The bomb is thought to injure his 22-year-old brother Samuel
- Their mother Efe blames the probation officers of MTC Novo for not having warned her
The mother of a seven-year-old boy who was killed when their home was set on fire says a private probation company did not tell her that they were in danger.
Efe Urhie, 50, blames probation staff at Novo MTC for Joel's death, seven, at a fire in their home in Deptford, South London, last year.
She says they refused to tell her that her 22-year-old son Samuel had been involved in violence in the days before the fire, the Mirror.

It is thought that the fire bomb that killed seven-year-old Joel Urhie at his home in Deptford, South London (pictured after the fire) was aimed at his older brother Samuel
It is thought that the fire bomb that killed Joel was aimed at his older brother – who was released from prison three months before the attack.
Their mother met Samuel's probation officers to discuss her son in front of the fire, but they told her that all details were confidential.
& # 39; They said that because my son was over 18, they had a duty of confidentiality, so they couldn't tell me that he was in danger. & # 39; Mrs. Urhie said.
Joel & # 39; s elder brother Sam was imprisoned for drug trafficking for four years in 2016.
And less than two months before the arson, he was stabbed outside the family home.
Last August, Mrs. Urhie's 19-year-old daughter had to wake up her family after a fire bomb had been pushed through their home's letterbox.

And although his mother told Joel to jump through the window, she thinks he was too scared.

& # 39; He said "Ok mom, we'll make it". But by the time I came out, he didn't come. I think he was scared. & # 39;
Joel & # 39; s body was found by emergency services in the upstairs bedroom that he shared with his mother.
A post-mortem discovered that he had died from burns caused by fire and smoke inhalation.
During a visit to his mother and sister at the hospital, Sam heard screams & # 39; it should have been & # 39 ;.
At the time, a cousin told of Joel & # 39; s father, John The Sun Online: & # 39; The mother blamed him. She immediately told him at the hospital & you killed Joel & # 39 ;. & # 39;
An MTC Novo spokesperson said: & # 39; Public protection is the top priority and we have taken several initiatives to monitor and improve the quality of our case and risk management. & # 39;
Two men aged 21 and 29 were arrested days after the arson. They are still investigating.
