Queen Elizabeth Shares Message Of Support For Manchester Attack Victims

Saffie Roussos, a "beautiful little girl", was killed in the attack which ripped through the venue on Monday night.

Police have raided two residential areas in Manchester as a part of the investigation into the suicide bombing of a concert at Manchester Arena on Monday night, United Kingdom officials confirmed Tuesday afternoon.

Police said they responded to reports of an explosion shortly after 10:35 the arena, which has a capacity for 21,000 people, and where the US singer had been performing to an audience that included many children. However, he has not yet been formally identified and I wouldn't wish, therefore, to comment further.

"The priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network", Hopkins said. "We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated causing this atrocity".

May said police believe they know the identity of the suspect but at this stage they can not confirm his name. He was described by neighbors as a tall, thin young man who often wore traditional Islamic dress, but few said they knew him well.

"What comes next will be more severe on the worshippers of the cross", the Telegram posting said.

Take That have postponed four concerts in Manchester and Liverpool after Monday night's terror attack at Manchester Arena.

Majid Khan, 22, who was attending the concert with his sister, said: "A huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena".

If you're a parent, you see those children and think of your own kids, chatting, excited, singing their Ariana Grande songs to each other just before the blast.

As I'm writing this, a colleague mentioned the same thing, that business of dropping off his daughters at a concert. "He was normal, to be honest".

"It felt like an eternity", Harries said, but it "couldn't have been more than two, three minutes from in our seats to outside of the arena".

The US pop superstar, also a friend of Grande, tweeted: "Broken hearted for the families tonight".
