[LONDON] Vote Leave, the official campaign for an "Out" vote in Britain's EU referendum next week, suspended campaigning for the day on Thursday after a member of parliament was attacked, a spokesman said.

Earlier, rival campaign Britain Stronger in Europe said it was halting campaigning for the day after reports Labour Party lawmaker Jo Cox had been shot.
