A British Labour lawmaker has died after suffering serious injuries in an attack.
Jo Cox, 41, was shot and stabbed near the city of Leeds in West Yorkshire, north of London.
A 77-year-old man also suffered slight injuries.
Police said a 52-year-old man was arrested after the incident and that they were not looking for anyone else in connection with the attack.
Clarke Rothwell, who runs a nearby cafe, told the BBC that he believed Cox had been shot and stabbed multiple times.
"The third time he got close proximity [the attacker] shot her around the head area," he said.
"In the meantime he was stabbing her as well,” the witness added. “He was stabbing her with his knife."
The attack comes a week before Britons have been called upon to vote in a referendum and decide whether Britain remains part of the European Union.
Both the Leave and Remain camps suspended campaigning in light of the attack.
