DUP leader returns to Northern Ireland, talks continue - Sky News

DUBLIN (Reuters) - The leader of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party has returned home after talks with Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party in London but other senior DUP figures are continuing discussions, Sky News reported.

May is seeking to secure the support of the DUP’s 10 members of parliament after her Conservatives failed to secure a majority in a general election last week. The DUP did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

A deadly fire at a tower block in London could delay the announcement of any deal to stay in power, the BBC reported, citing a source in Arlene Foster’s DUP.
