Canadian Victim in London Attack Died in her Fiance’s Arms


TORONTO (AP) – Canadian social worker Christine Archibald is being remembered as a “bright light” for her profession as those who loved her launch an online campaign of compassionate acts after she was struck by a van of terrorists on London Bridge and died in her fiance’s arms.
