Jo Cox MP dead after shooting attack

London: An MP has died after she was shot and stabbed in a brutal assault in her constituency. Jo Cox, Labour MP for Batley and Spen, was left bleeding on the ground after the attack in Birstall, West Yorkshire. A 52-year-old man was arrested in the area, police confirmed. The suspect was named locally as Tommy Mair. Police added that Cox, 41, had suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead on Thursday by a doctor with paramedics at the scene. Eyewitness told police they heard her attacker shout ''put Britain first" at least twice before killing her. Cox won election last year after a career in humanitarian work and was widely respected for her outspoken advocacy on behalf of refugees and civilians in Syria.
