Grande suspends world tour after attack

A shattered Ariana Grande has returned home to Florida after 22 people were killed when a suicide bomber targeted her concert at the UK's Manchester Arena. He was the son of Libyan refugees who fled Muammar Gaddafi's regime, but Abedi grew up in Manchester. According to police, he was "known to authorities", but it's not entirely clear in what capacity, and worshiped at a mosque suspected of funding jihadists. "A police cordon remains in place while this is carried out". The Belgian-born children of Moroccan immigrants masterminded the shooting and bomb attacks on the Bataclan nightclub and Stade de France later the same year.

The former bricklayer said "I wouldn't have been able to live with myself if I'd just walked away", adding that he will never forget the horrific images of carnage he witnessed that night. Among the dead was an 8-year-old girl. British police, who have been battling terrorism since the Irish Republican Army's attacks in the early 1970s, are experts in terrorism and have thwarted dozens of planned attacks on Britain.

British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the apparent suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester Monday as "a callous terrorist attack", and Queen Elizabeth expressed "admiration for the way the people of Manchester have responded".

A neighbour captured the moment armed police stormed a house believed to be linked to the Manchester Arena suicide bomber.

The bombing also left 64 people wounded, of whom 20 were receiving critical care for highly traumatic injuries to major organs and to limbs, a health official said.

Andre Gerolymatos, director of Simon Fraser University's Terrorism, Risk and Security Studies program, said it's entirely possible ISIS could attempt to execute an attack in Vancouver.

The top U.S. intelligence official, Dan Coats, said the American government had not verified whether or how Islamic State was responsible.

Witnesses said the blast scattered bolts and other bits of metal, apparently meant to maximise injuries and deaths. That includes the numerous Muslim taxi drivers that offered free rides home to those in the area and the Muslim doctors who worked through the night to treat the injured. "We obviously then run to try and find our children and fortunately for us we were all safe to tell the story". Twitter users circulated the #MissinginManchester hashtag to help people looking for family and friends.

"We were stood at the top of the stairs and the glass exploded".

Saffie has since been described by her school as "simply a handsome little girl in every aspect of the word".

The players will wear black armbands for the game in Stockholm and a minute's silence will be held.

"We have provided, and continue to provide, support to all students and staff who have been affected".

"I am just making this video to let you know that I am indeed alive and well, in the United States and not the U.K.", John said.

Islamic State, now being driven from territories in Syria and Iraq by Western-backed armed forces, claimed responsibility for what it called a revenge attack against "Crusaders".
