Labour anti-Semitism row: Corbyn urged to show remorse

Aberavon MP Stephen Kinnock says Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn should make it clear he understands the hurt felt by the Jewish community amid a row about anti-Semitism in the party.

It comes as Labour's ruling national executive committee was meeting on Tuesday to discuss whether to adopt in full an international definition of anti-Semitism following months of acrimony.

The row saw Labour MP Dame Margaret Hodge publicly accuse Mr Corbyn himself of being a racist and an anti-Semite, which he denied.
