April 28, 2016 21:57

British Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn on Thursday denied that his party was facing a crisis over anti-Semitism after its veteran member and former London mayor Ken Livingstone was suspended over remarks aligning Hilter with Zionism, British media reported.

The UK opposition party's leader rejected the notion that Labor was failing to tack anti-Semitism within its ranks after disciplinary action was taken against two of the party's members this week in latest in a string of controversies.

The day before the episode involving Livingstone, Labor lawmaker Naz Shah was also suspended over a Facebook post that surfaced from 2014 that suggested relocating Israel to the US.
