Britain suspends election campaigning in the wake of terror attacks

Ariana Grande’s concert venue was the target of a terror attack in Manchester.

Political parties in Britain have agreed to suspend election campaigning, until further notice, in the wake of a terrorist attack in Manchester, at a concert by U.S singer Ariana Grande.

Nineteen people lost their lives in the horrific attacks.

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, which is sitting in the opposition, said in a statement that having spoken to the British Prime Minister Theresa May, they have agreed to end the national campaigning for the June 8 elections.

May had earlier stated that the attack in the northern English city is being treated as a terrorist attack.

“I am horrified by the horrendous events in Manchester last night,” said Corbyn. “My thoughts are with families and friends of those who have died and been injured.”
