Israel’s PM, Benjamin Netanyahu, has criticised Jeremy Corbyn over his presence at a ceremony which was said to have honoured the perpetrators of the 1972 munich terror attack.
Netanyahu said Corbyn deserved unequivocal condemnation for laying a wreath on the grave of one of those behind the atrocity.
However, Corbyn said Netanyahu’s claims about his actions are false.
The labour leader said he had attended the event in Tunis in 2014 as part of a wider event about the search for peace.
However, Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi of Jewish voice for labour said Corbyn was in Tunis for a pro-peace conference and that the accusations were yet another cooked-up example of people trying to attribute guilt to the labour party er by association.
