Young girls confirmed dead in Manchester concert attack


At least 22 people, including children, were killed and dozens more were hurt in the attack, which left concertgoers screaming and prompted a massive police response.

The top US intelligence official, Dan Coats, said the American government had not verified whether or how Islamic State was responsible. The fact that we have not been here before and the fact that we need to say this again does not make it any less true.

Runshaw College in Lancashire, about an hour northwest of Manchester, released a statement confirming with "enormous sadness" that the 18-year-old had died.

The concert drew a sell-out crowd to Manchester Arena - about 20,000 people - and it was just ending.

After expressing his condolences to the victims of the attack, Trump had harsh words for those responsible for the violence. I've dropped them off to the hospital. They think an aunt from Wales may have picked her up.

"I've had people who needed to find loved ones".

"So many young handsome innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. But they're losers, just remember that".

Police said they were responding to reports of an explosion and that there were a number of confirmed casualties and others injured.

A woman purchased the bag for $995 and took it to NASA, where researchers found it was part of the Apollo 11 landing mission. Carlson fought the move and this year in February a judge decided she'd acquired the bag legally and could keep it.

Nick Yates, 27, a graphic designer from Manchester, said: "There was a black Mercedes van pulled up on the side of the road with six to eight police officers, all in plain clothes but wearing black caps with checkerboard marking". Teens and children were among the victims. No additional details about Abedi were immediately available. Can't believe what happened last night. A 23-year-old man was arrested Tuesday in south Manchester in connection with the bombing.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the attacker, a suicide bomber, chose to detonate his explosive outside the concert, which was just letting out about 10:30 p.m. local time "to cause maximum carnage and to kill and injure indiscriminately". He told The Associated Press that the school confirmed Callander's death with members of her family.

"Broken", the singer tweeted. "I don't have words", she wrote.

The attack took place at the Manchester Arena shortly after the pop star's concert ended, leaving at least 59 injured in addition to the almost two dozen dead. "Everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us".

"Club staff are ready to help the police and other emergency services in any way that may be required at this challenging time for our city".

One day before the concert, Georgina tweeted about how excited she was to attend Ariana's show.

"She's an absolute wreck", a source close to Grande told ET.
