Close to home

I've just found this statement from the college where I'm studying:

It was with sadness that I heard that one of those personal tragedies involves a Birkbeck student. Benedetta Ciaccia is still missing, following the Aldgate incident last Thursday. Benedetta has been studying at Birkbeck for the past four years on the Foundation Degree in IT. Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones at this difficult time.

We were also relieved to hear that another Birkbeck student Jeff Porter (MA Contemporary History & Politics) emerged safe from the Edgware Road incident. Jeff was the tube driver who led hundreds of his passengers unharmed to safety after he drove past the tube train that exploded.

More on Benedetta Ciaccia here and Jeff Porter here.
