British-Somali Muslim accused of killing conservative MP

The Metropolitan Police said it found a potential suspect in the MP David Amess murder case. It suspects a British Muslim, reports the BBC.

Conservative MP Amess was stabbed multiple times on Friday, and a 25-year-old British man was arrested at the scene on suspicion of murder, the only suspect thus far.

Government sources have told the BBC he is a British national who, from initial inquiries, appears to be of Somali heritage. He is currently in custody in Essex.

The force believes the man acted alone but they are treating it as an “Islamist extremism” terrorist attack.

However, investigation is ongoing.

According to the BBC, the founder of 2 Sisters Food Group, Ranjit Boparan, warned that chicken prices would rise by 10%. The cause of which is not only labour shortages, but also surge in packaging costs, due to lack of energy and CO2 supplies.

Brits are already seeing empty shelves when it comes to fresh produce and dairy products, and a crisis in UK’s most popular meat is now approaching.
