U.K. officials said Manchester police will no longer share intelligence regarding the investigation into the city's terrorist attack with the U.S. following their outrage over repeated leaks to the media, reports BBC. Their latest fury comes after the NY Times released photos of debris of the blast that left 22 dead, and the name of the bomber, Salman Abedi, was leaked to the media just hours after the attack.

Yesterday, U.K. Home Secretary Amber Rudd slammed the leaks as "irritating" and said that "I have been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again." The U.K.Police Chiefs Council also released a statement, noting that when their trust is breached, "it undermines these relationships, and undermines our investigations."

British Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday that she plans to confront President Trump at a NATO meeting in Brussels today that shared intelligence "must remain secure."

Many politicians and public health officials sounded a similar lockdown refrain in the spring: let’s do this right so we only have to do it once.

Reality check: While some countries have thus far managed to keep cases under control after opening up, dozens of countries that had initially turned a corner are now seeing a worrying rebound. They have to decide if and how to return to lockdown — and whether their populations will stand for it.
