LONDON BRIDGE VIGIL London Bridge victims remembered at Cambridge vigil


A vigil was held in Cambridge, England on Monday to honour the two people who were killed when a militant knifeman went on a stabbing spree near London Bridge last week.

Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, were killed on Friday when Usman Khan, a man convicted of terror offences in 2012, attacked people at a prisoner rehabilitation conference near London Bridge in the British capital.

Merritt and Jones were both involved in the conference which their attacker Khan had also been attending.

Scores of mourners observed several minutes of silence as church bells rang out across Cambridge Market Square, and family and friends laid flowers and candles by the city’s Guild Hall. Both Merritt and Jones were former students at Cambridge University.
