Miqdad Al-Nuaimi, a councillor in Newport, south Wales, and Terry Kelly, who sits on Renfrewshire Council, have been suspended "pending an investigation", a spokesman said.

The move came as the party's candidate for London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, apologised for referring to moderate Labour councillors as "Uncle Toms".

David Cameron and Jeremy Corbyn have also exchanged verbal blows in a furious House of Commons spat over the issue, as the Prime Minister demanded that the Labour leader withdraw a previous description of Hamas and Hezbollah as "friends".

Mr Corbyn insisted that "I absolutely do not approve of those organisations" and said that Mr Cameron should follow his lead in launching an inquiry into racism within his own party.

Final push from parties for votes ahead of election

Welsh political parties are making their final push for votes ahead of Thursday's Assembly elections.

The ruling Labour administration goes into the vote seeking a fifth consecutive term in office - but faces strong criticism from rivals over its 17-year rule.

At the last election it won 30 out of 60 Senedd seats.

The Welsh Conservatives got 14, Plaid Cymru 11 and the Welsh Liberal Democrats five. A recent poll by ITV Wales and YouGov predicted that Ukip would win its first ever seats in the Assembly.

Welsh Labour leader and First Minister Carwyn Jones will use the final day to rally support in Cardiff, while Tory chief Andrew RT Davies is set to complete a 36-hour tour of Wales.

Plaid's Leanne Wood was using the eve of the vote to reach out to "disillusioned" Labour voters.

She said: "For people who want to strengthen and protect our public services, who want to deliver fairness and equality in our communities, and who want a government that will look after people from cradle to grave, you can be confident that Plaid Cymru wants that too."
