Britain's political parties agreed to halt campaigning after Monday's horrific bombing in Manchester just weeks before the highly anticipated June 8 elections. Prime Minister Theresa May of the Conservative Party called for a snap election hoping to capitalize on her popularity and the disarray of the opposition Labour Party after the Brexit vote.
