United Kingdom terror threat level raised to critical

He died at the arena.

Theresa May said the attack was among "the worst terrorist incidents" in United Kingdom history.

Flags in Downing Street have been lowered to half-mast in honour of those killed and injured.

Vigils have been held elsewhere, including in Birmingham, where the event was interrupted after a man apparently armed with a large knife and a baseball bat was detained nearby. "Those beliefs have no place in our society".

British media said Abedi was born in Manchester, northwest England, and that his Libyan parents had fled the regime of dictator Moamer Kadhafi. The events in Manchester were "another example of why we need to continue to be vigilant as a country and as a community about domestic terrorism", Charlie Baker, Boston's governor, was cited as saying by the State House News Service.

"Our priority, along with the police counterterrorist network and our security partners, is to continue to establish whether he was acting alone or working as part of a wider network", he said Tuesday afternoon.

Stories of random acts of kindness are emerging in the wake of the Manchester terror attack, with many Sikh gurdwaras and people offering free food and rooms for the night. "We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated causing this atrocity".

It was supposed to be one of the best nights of their life: a concert featuring the American singer Ariana Grande and thousands of like-minded fans.

Monday's attack came just over two weeks before Britain votes in a general election and campaigning was suspended by all the main political parties.

"All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected".

"This means that their assessment is not only that an attack remains highly likely, but that a further attack may be imminent". The police will increase its presence in and around concert venues in Paris, especially at the start and end of events, according to the French capital's police chief Michel Delpuech. Campbell's 15-year-old daughter, Olivia, had attended the show with a friend who was wounded and being treated in a hospital.

Paula Robinson, 48, said she was at the train station next to the arena with her husband when she felt the explosion and saw dozens of teenage girls screaming and running away from arena. "I got the teens to run with me".

"We must all stand together and not let the terrorists defeat us, not let them stop us going about our daily business and create fear, and we must all live in harmony with each other as we stand together and defeat terrorism", he said. She said her phone had not stopped ringing since her tweet.

"It was a huge explosion - you could feel it in your chest".

"The audience was a very young audience, and there were a lot of people there without their parents", he told the BBC.

Greater Manchester Police's Ian Hopkins said: "As your Chief Constable of Greater Manchester and as a father I cannot begin to imagine how anyone can carry out such an unthinkable act - murdering 22 people and injuring 59 - and my thoughts and those of my colleagues are very much with their families at this incredibly hard time".

He said he later found his family outside the arena.

The manager for Phil Collins, scheduled to play Liverpool's Echo Arena on June 2 and then five dates at London's Royal Albert Hall starting June 4, said those shows would go on. "What should have been a superb evening", Lunt said, "is now just awful".

Several people on the streets who had been to the gig were visibly upset.
