Jo Cox death: Tributes paid in memory of killed Labour MP

Tributes have been paid around the world to Labour MP Jo Cox, who died after being shot and stabbed.

The 41-year-old was attacked after holding a constituency surgery in Birstall, West Yorkshire on Thursday.

Among those who honoured Mrs Cox was Hillary Clinton, the US Democratic Party's presidential hopeful, who said: "It is cruel and terrible that her life was cut short."

Mrs Cox's husband said the mother of two had fought for "a better world".

Her attacker is reported to have shouted "put Britain first" at least twice. A 52-year-old man, named locally as Tommy Mair, has been arrested.

Witness Ben Abdullah, who was working at a café next to the scene of the attack, said he saw "a river of people" coming down the street "screaming and shouting".

"I wasn't frightened... I don't know what I was. I thought, 'it's like a warzone'", he said.

Mr Abdullah said he heard several shots and saw Mrs Cox on the floor "in a very bad state".
