    British law enforcement have resumed intelligence sharing with their American counterparts that was severed in connection to the leak of sensitive intelligence regarding the Manchester bombing.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The UK Counter-Terrorism Police said Thursday they had resumed intelligence sharing with the United States after receiving assurances from Washington following a sensitive leak of Manchester attack files.

    "Having received fresh assurances (about info sharing), we are now working closely with ALL our key partners around the world," the agency quoted its chief, Mark Rowley, as saying on Twitter.

    Both the United Kingdom and the United States are part of the Five Eyes spying alliance, which also includes Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

    London reportedly stopped sharing data with the US intelligence community after US media published classified details of this Monday’s bombing at Manchester Arena, including forensic photos from the scene.

    Prime Minister Theresa May criticized the leaks when she met President Donald Trump in Brussels on Thursday. She said she wanted to make clear that intelligence shared between law enforcement agencies must remain secure.
