LONDON — Britain’s opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Sunday there could be another election this year or early in 2018 after the vote on Thursday produced no clear winner.

Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May is trying to reach an agreement with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party to form a minority government.
