British police investigating the Manchester Arena suicide bombing have stopped sharing information with the U.S. authorities after the initial details and images of the assault were leaked and published in American media.

The strict action underscores deep anguish and frustration across the British government, writes the BBC. The New York Times carried detailed pictures of the Manchester site that suffered a deadly suicide bombing on Monday.

Observers believe that the “unauthorized disclosure” by the U.S. sources not only amounts to breach of trust between the two defense and security allies but could also hinder an ongoing manhunt for a possible bomb-maker still at large, notes Reuters.
