Photos show detonator, shrapnel, battery used by Manchester bomber

"They wouldn't let you share bread with them", she said Abedi told her.

Fifteen-year-old Millie Robson, wearing one of Grande's T-shirts, told the queen she had won VIP tickets to the pop star's concert.

British officials were particularly angry over photos published by The New York Times showing remnants of a blue backpack which may have held the explosive. The government said almost 1,000 soldiers were deployed Wednesday instead of police in high-profile sites in London and other locations.

Britain on Tuesday raised its threat level from terrorism to "critical" amid concerns that the 22-year-old Abedi may have accomplices who are planning another attack.

Following the attack, Theresa May on Tuesday night announced the UK's terror threat has been raised to critical, meaning another attack may be imminent. There are two major sports events in London on Saturday, with Wembley Stadium hosting soccer's FA Cup final, which Prince William is due to attend, and Twickenham hosting rugby's Premiership final.

Seven arrests have now been made in Britain and Libya as police scramble to close down a network around the Manchester suicide bomber, as details about the investigation were leaked to U.S. media, infuriating authorities who fear a second attack is imminent. Abedi was born in Manchester in 1994 to Libyan parents who fled the Qaddafi regime.

Police had followed up on the complaint at the time and visited the house.

They show the former graphic design student - who left a wife and child in Manchester when he travelled to Syria in 2013 - was the named sponsor for a series of young men and women, many from the North West.

Griezmann expected to join Man United within weeks
So, it goes without saying that this Europa League final on Wednesday against Ajax is pretty important for Manchester United. Speaking about Griezmann's future, Cerezo was adamant that Manchester United haven't made an offer for the Atletico striker.

"And as I've said, it continues at a pace". "They arrested the father, and I think the rest of the family kind of disappeared". "I've called all the places, the hotels where people said that children have been taken and I've called the police", Charlotte Campbell tearfully told ITV television's Good Morning Britain breakfast show. "We don't believe in killing innocents", Ramadan Abedi said before he was detained in Tripoli. But it wasn't clear US officials were the source of the images, which the Times defended as "neither graphic nor disrespectful of victims" and consistent with basic reporting "on weapons used in horrific crimes".

The senior Abedi worked as a security officer under dictator Moammar Gadhafi's rule.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the blood bath Monday, though a top American intelligence official said the assertion could not be verified.

U.S. President Trump vowed on Thursday to bring anyone caught leaking U.S. intelligence to justice after British police stopped sharing information about the Manchester suicide bombing with the United States. Rudd said Britain's operational security could be harmed by the leaks, taking "the element of surprise" away from security services and police.

"So it is irritating if it gets released from other sources and I have been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again".

The suicide bomber who attacked a concert at the arena was likely to have been working with other terrorists but was only known to the security services "up to a point", the British home secretary said earlier on Wednesday.

In addition to those killed in the concert attack, 64 people are being treated for their wounds, Jon Rouse of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership said Wednesday.
