Brother describes family 'heartbreak' on Reading terror victim's 40th birthday

The brother of Joseph Ritchie-Bennett, who was killed in the Reading terror attack on June 20 2020, has paid tribute to him on what would have been his 40th birthday. The US citizen, affectionately known to his loved ones as Joe, was stabbed to death in a park by 26-year-old failed Libyan asylum seeker Khairi Saadallah on June 20 last year. His friends, history teacher James Furlong, 36, and scientist Dr David Wails, 49, were also killed in the attack in Forbury Gardens as the victims were enjoying a summer evening after the first lockdown restrictions in England were relaxed.
