Britain mourned lawmaker Jo Cox Friday after a man with suspected neo-Nazi links and a history of mental illness was arrested over a killing that has thrown next week's referendum on European Union membership into limbo.Cox, 41, a supporter of Britain staying in the EU, was shot and stabbed Thursday by a man who witnesses said shouted "Britain first" in her own electoral district near Leeds in the county of West Yorkshire in northern England. British media named the man as Thomas Mair.Britain First, a far-right nationalist group, denied any links with Mair but a U.S. civil rights group said he had been associated in the past with a neo-Nazi organisation. Prime Minister David Cameron has agreed to recall parliament on Monday in tribute to Cox, a well-liked mother of two young children and considered an outstanding member of the new intake of Labour parliamentarians.Cameron said the killing of Cox, who had worked on U.S. President Barack Obama's 2008 election campaign, was a tragedy.
