British Lawmaker David Amess Fatally Stabbed – Democracy Now!

In the United Kingdom, a man fatally stabbed longtime British Member of Parliament David Amess Saturday as he met with constituents at a church east of London. The Metropolitan Police said they have arrested and charged a suspect in the killing, which they described as a terrorist incident. It was the first murder of a British MP since 2016, when anti-Brexit politician Jo Cox was fatally shot and stabbed by a far-right white supremacist.
