Hundreds of Brits attended vigils in memory of Labour parliament member Joanne Cox, who was shot and stabbed during a meeting with her voters in Birstall, local media said Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The 41-year-old was reportedly attacked in the street as she held a regular constituency surgery, according to The Guardian newspaper. The murder suspect, a man with allegedly mental health issues, was detained soon after. 

​"Jo Cox died doing her public duty at the heart of our democracy," Labour party leader Jeremy Corbyn wrote, saying it was a "horrific murder." 

​A spontaneous rally was held late Thursday outside the UK parliament in London, with hundreds paying tribute to the deceased mother-of-two. More people, including Corbyn’s former leadership rival Yvette Cooper, came to the parish church of St. Peter’s in Cox’s home town Birstall.
