The new leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party faced heavy criticism Wednesday for remaining silent while the national anthem was sung at a religious service to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Nazi Germany's air attacks on Britain.The decision by Corbyn, who was elected Saturday with strong backing from his party's members but has less support among Labour lawmakers, was criticized both by members of the armed forces and by some within his party.Labour said Corbyn's attendance at the service Tuesday to mark the battle between the Royal Air Force and the German Luftwaffe in 1940 had shown his respect for those who fought.
