But the Daily Mail, which published the photos, said its own visit to the Martyrs' Cemetery revealed that the pictures were taken in front of a plaque honouring the founder...

Sajid Javid said that the leader of any other mainstream political party would have to go if they had paid tribute to Palestinians linked to the Munich massacre.

Labour sources have claimed Mr Corbyn gave a full explanation of his trip to the cemetery when the Tunis visit first hit the headlines during last year's general election campaign.

Lillis, who is a member of Labour's ruling national executive committee, told the Jewish News he was shocked to find the party mired in allegations of racism.

The Labour leader said at that time: "I was in Tunisia at a Palestinian conference and I spoke at that Palestinian conference and I laid a wreath to all those that had died in the air attack that took place on Tunis, on the headquarters of the Palestinian organisations there".

It comes as the ongoing anti-Semitism scandal threatens to rip the Labour Party apart.

The leader of a third major trade union has called on Labour to adopt in full the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance's definition of antisemitism.

This weekend, it emerged that three of Labours main trade-union backers - Unite, Unison and the GMB - had hired lawyers to examine the legal definitions of anti-semitism and demand Mr Corbyn and Labour capitulates.

"Jeremy Corbyn has clearly stated that there is a problem with antisemitism in the Labour party and he is right in his determination to tackle it", said the Usdaw chief.

"If we are to do that, it is essential that the party regains the trust of Jewish communities".

The pictures emerged amid continuing controversy over Labour's refusal to adopt in full an global definition of anti-Semitism, including a list of examples of anti-Semitic behaviour.
