CA, 16 Oct 2021
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson paid tribute to lawmaker David Amess who was stabbed to death at a constituency meeting in a church on Friday, saying he was a fine public servant and much-loved friend and colleague.
Calling Amess "one of the nicest, kindest, most gentle people in politics," Johnson expressed his shock and sadness, saying his thoughts were with Amess's wife and family.
Amess, 69, from Johnson's Conservative Party, was attacked at about midday in the red-brick Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea, east of London.
Police have arrested a 25-year-old man and the investigation is ongoing.
