THE BRUTAL KILLING OF LABOUR MP JO COX (41 years old)
I’m in total shock. An MP has died after she was shot and stabbed in a “horrific” assault in her constituency, police have said.
Jo Cox, Labour MP for Batley and Spen, was left bleeding on the ground after the attack in Birstall, West Yorkshire. A man was arrested nearby.
One eyewitness told the BBC they heard her attacker shout “put Britain first” at least twice beforehand.
Tributes flooded in from politicians including David Cameron, Jeremy Corbyn and US Secretary of State John Kerry.
Mrs Cox’s husband Brendan said she would want people “to unite to fight against the hatred that killed her.”
I’m in shock
I’ve been in shock since…… (……….)
I’m on a countdown….But the MASSACRE in Orlando….and now this….plus the daily CRISIS in Syria and so on…
