The leader of Britains opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said on Friday there was a real problem of anti-Semitism in his party which he would root out, but he also hit back at strong criticism of Labour from Jewish newspapers.
In an article written for The Guardian newspaper, Corbyn stopped short of agreeing to adopt in full an internationally accepted definition of anti-Semitism, along with a series of examples, as sought by Jewish groups.
Corbyn, a veteran campaigner for Palestinian rights and a critic of Israel, has been hit by accusations that Labour has tolerated anti-Semitism among some of its members.
