UK Halts Sharing Manchester Bombing Intel With US Following Leaks


Britain has suspended intelligence sharing on the Manchester bombing with the US after American officials leaked information to the media, an issue that British Prime Minister Theresa May will raise with US President Donald Trump later Thursday.

US officials released the suspected bomber’s name and other details of the investigation into the deadly attack at the Manchester Arena Monday night, irking British investigators scrambling to keep details of the probe confidential.

Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said that only intelligence relating to this particular probe had been suspended, adding that “we quite frankly can’t afford to risk it any more.”
