Jo Cox to share peace prize with the Syrian group she championed



MP is honoured with the White Helmets on the eve of Thomas Mair’s trial for her murder.

The MP Jo Cox is to receive a posthumous peace prize jointly with the Syrian civil volunteer group known as the White Helmets, which she supported in the last years of her life.

The MP will be remembered next week at theRising Global Peace Forum, launched in Coventry last year by Archbishop Desmond Tutu. The recognition comes as the trial of Thomas Mair, the man accused of shooting Cox on 16 June near her constituency office in Birstall, West Yorkshire, begins tomorrow.
