Recording emerges of speaker comparing Israeli policy to Nazism at Corbyn-hosted meeting

Jeremy Corbyn has issued an apology over any “concerns and anxiety” he caused  by appearing on platforms with people whose views he “did not accept or condone” – after it emerged that he had hosted a meeting in 2010 where a speaker compared Israeli policy to the Nazis.

Channel 4 News has obtained a recording of the meeting. Critics have dismissed Mr Corbyn’s apology as “utterly hollow” –  while the row has increased the pressure on Labour to take a tougher stand on anti-Semitism.

Viewers will hear views in the report that many will find offensive.
