Khairi Saadallah charged with three counts of murder after Reading stabbings

Three other men were injured.

He is charged with murdering James Furlong, 36, David Wails, 49, and Joe Ritchie-Bennett, 39, with a large kitchen knife shortly before 19:00 on Saturday 20 June.

Mr Saadallah will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Monday.

"Three people were killed and died at the scene and a further three people were taken to hospital for treatment for their injuries".

The day after the attack, British police declared the attack a terrorist incident.

A VIRTUAL VIGIL will be held in honour of the victims of the Forbury Gardens attacks tonight to remember the three people who died one week on.

Relatives of the victims and members of the local community lit candles, while the UK's Interior Minister Priti Patel also attended the vigil, lighting a candle and paying her respects.

Candles and flowers were left at Market Place, Reading, in memory of the three victims. Each died from a single stab wound.


Mr Saadallah is also charged with attempting to murder their friend Stephen Young as well as Patrick Edwards and Nishit Nisudan, who were sat in another group nearby, during an attack lasting less than two minutes.

Furlong's grieving family praised police in a tribute to officers on Saturday. "They have been a pillar of support", said the grieving family.

Furlong's family said: "We would like to start by thanking the police for their ongoing help, including their remarkable bravery". He cared so much and was very proud of each and every one of you.

The statement said: 'We LOVED (sic) Joe so much and we are in such deep sorrow.

Reading Borough Council leader Jason Brock said: "There is an overwhelming sense of grief within the Reading community about last Saturday's tragic events".

Thames Valley Police Chief Constable John Campbell said: "In times of such tragedy, we often see the best of our communities and that has certainly been the case in Reading".

"You know, we still can't believe that this has happened quite, this is the kind of thing that happens in other places, not in our own town and so I think we're all really still reeling from it".
