U.K. Labour's Corbyn Links Terror to Wars

U.K. opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn promised his party will boost police, intelligence and security staff after criticizing Theresa May’s government for cutting police budgets as the Manchester terrorist attack became the central issue of the election campaign.

The party will add 17,000 officers and staff, including 10,000 police, to reverse the impact of Conservative cuts, according to an emailed statement from Corbyn’s office.
