September 11, 2016 07:57

British Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn will not be paying a visit to the Holy Land after he reportedly turned down an invitation to visit Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in Jerusalem.

On Saturday night, officials "confirmed" to UK daily The Guardian that the party leader's "diary was too full." He had failed to respond to the invitation by Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog for several weeks.

Iain McNicol, Labour's general secretary, will reportedly go in Corbyn's stead.
