A missing Brit has been pictured having fun shortly before he vanished during the Hamas massacre – as friends of his partner say they have been told she is dead.
British photographer Danny Darlington, who lived in Berlin, and his German girlfriend Carolin Bohl have not been heard from since hiding out in a bunker in Nir Or, a kibbutz in Southern Israel, according to Ms Bohl’s brother-in law Sam Pasquesi.
Mr Pasquesi said his family learned late on Sunday from a man working at the kibbutz that the bodies of the two had been identified.
Heartbreaking photographs on Instagram show the pair laughing together shortly before they vanished during the deadly attack on Israel.
Several Israeli news outlets, citing rescue service officials, said at least 700 people have now been killed in the country, with attacks continuing into Sunday and Monday.
Ms Bohl’s devastated sister posted on Instagram claiming the family learned the news of the couple’s death from a friend ‘on the ground’ in Israel.

The photographer’s father David Darlington previously told the BBC that his son had been travelling with a German woman and that his half-sister had last spoken to him on Saturday morning.
He said: ‘The communications network is down and we haven’t spoken to him for 24 hours.’
Their deaths come as hundreds remain missing in Israel following the surprise attack from the Palestinian militant group.
The bodies of young revellers were seen piled up on top of each other in makeshift tents last night as emergency workers tried to identify the 260 festival-goers killed at an Israeli music festival by Hamas terrorists.
The distressing image, shared in a pixelated form on the Israeli government’s official Twitter page, showed scores of victims placed in body bags at the site of the ‘beautiful party’ that turned into a horrific massacre.
Footage from the aftermath shows empty festival tents and abandoned cars strewn frantically across the road leading to the Supernova Festival, that had been taking place near Kibbutz Re’im, close to the Gaza Strip.
Many terrified victims had fled across the sand on foot to their cars in an attempt to drive away from the horrors, only to be met with gunfire from armed gunmen piled into jeeps going ‘tree by tree’ in attempt to shoot people.
