British PM May Will Suspend Campaign After Terror Attack

Mrs May will also lead discussions on tackling terrorism at a meeting of premiers from leading economies later this week, Downing Street has said.

May, who first took office last summer when she replaced former PM David Cameron, will stop campaigning for the June 8 election, BBC reported.

Members of Manchester's vibrant Irish community reacted with shock at the attack at the end of the concert by United States singer Ariana Grande on Monday that claimed the lives of young people including eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos, a primary school student from Lancashire.

The Islamic State terror group has claimed responsibility for the Manchester suicide bombing which killed 22 victims, including an eight-year-old girl, in the worst terrorist incident to hit Britain since the July 7 attacks.

We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack.

Concertgoers received shrapnel-like injuries and described seeing nuts and bolts among the pieces of debris.

As the country woke up to the devastating news, police patrols were stepped up around the country.

British police do not routinely carry firearms, but London police said extra armed officers would be deployed at this weekend's soccer cup final at Wembley and rugby at Twickenham.

New questions arise about possible Trump campaign, Russia collusion
Right-wing talk star Laura Ingraham mocked the senator's quip about a cloud lingering over the White House . Meanwhile, Trump's critics have been calling for his impeachment due to the controversies surrounding him.

One day after a bombing claimed at least 22 lives at a concert venue in Manchester, England, Prime Minister Theresa May has announced that the U.K.is raising its terror threat level.

US President Donald Trump offered his condolences and support over the phone to May, according to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

"So many young, beautiful, innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life", he said. I will call them losers because that's what they are.

A video posted on Twitter showed fans, many of them young, screaming and running from the venue. "But they're losers, just remember that".

Grande, who was not injured, tweeted hours later: "broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words".

She said the explosions rang out as soon as Grande left the stage.

Pop concerts and nightclubs have been a terrorism target before.

After the explosion, many children were either separated from their parents or came unaccompanied and didn't know where to turn amid the chaos. Twitter users circulated the MissinginManchester hashtag to help people looking for family members and friends. There were school uniforms laid out for children that were not being put on this morning.
