President Trump tweeted that British Prime Minister Theresa May expressed anger over intelligence leaks in the wake of last week’s deadly bombing in Manchester, England, including the release of the dead attacker’s name and detailed photos from the bomb scene that were published by the New York Times.
Several outlets cited unnamed U.S. officials as the source of the information including the bomber’s identity. The Times did not say how it obtained the photos.
Whether the photographs were provided by U.S. officials — who may have had access to shared intelligence through agreements with Britain — or came from some other source is not publicly known.
British Prime Minister Theresa May told reporters as she entered a NATO gathering Thursday that she planned to make clear to Trump that intelligence shared between law enforcement agencies “must remain secure” as part of the “special relationship” between the two countries.
Trump has increasingly decried leaks at home that have damaged his political standing. He recently caused controversy when he passed sensitive intelligence on Islamic State to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and discussed the location of U.S. nuclear submarines with the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte.
