"We extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues at the House of Commons and our solidarity with and the people and government of our close ally and partner UK.

Amess, a deputy with Boris Johnson's party, was stabbed while attending a meeting with his constituents.

His alleged killer has been arrested and appears to have been motivated by Islamic terrorism.
