Ariana Grande Will Return to Manchester to Play a Benefit Concert


The attack was the deadliest terror incident in Great Britain since the 2005 London bombings, which killed 52 people.

"They're very significant, these arrests".

Metropolitan Police Service Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, Britain's top counter-terror officer, said police are confident that have in custody "some of the key players that we're concerned about".

On the call, he told his mother: "Forgive me".

Details of the plea for forgiveness emerged after the bomber's mother, Samia Tabbal, 50, was questioned by police in Tripoli.

May said the national threat level from terrorism remains at critical - the highest level, meaning that another attack may be imminent.

Hospitals have been warned to be ready.

Earlier on Thursday, British prime minister Theresa May spoke to U.S. president Donald Trump to say intelligence shared between their two countries had to remain secure. "Maybe we're not reaching out enough to our young people", he said. "The way you have handled all of this has been more inspiring and made me more proud than you'll ever know", she said. She flew home on Tuesday after releasing a brief message saying she felt "broken". The O2 shows this week have been cancelled as well as all shows through June 5 in Switzerland.

According to ABC News, 10 people have been arrested in connection with the investigation. Abedi's brother and father were arrested by a militia in that country after the bombing, the militia said.

And they're doing this without their head coach. "And the fashion that they were playing basketball was at such a high level". And then, the final three weeks of the season as well as Round 1 was some of the toughest basketball that I had to play.

Ariana Grande says she'll return to Manchester for a benefit concert to raise money for the victims of Monday's bombing and their families.

Investigators believe 22-year-old Manchester-born suicide bomber Salman Abedi, from a family of Libyan origin, acted as part of a terrorist network, and their focus had been on intercepting his wider network. Buildings across Manchester and northwest England were raided.

But while there is progress, there's also outrage over intelligence leaks, possibly from the United States, that officials say could compromise their investigation. May said the US-British defense and security partnership is built on trust.

"We take full responsibility for that and we obviously regret that that happened", Tillerson said.

Opponents accused Corbyn of politicising the Manchester attack.

Members of the public are escorted from the Manchester Arena to a safer place.

Mohamed Fadil, spokesman for the Libyan community in Manchester, said they were shocked by Monday's attack but admitted there was a problem in their midst that needed to be tackled. However, with nearly 20,000 fewer police than when the Conservatives came to power in 2010, concern about police cuts is now likely to become a major issue in the election campaign.

Abedi passed through Istanbul on his way to Europe, Turkish security officials told Reuters, but said there were no records of him entering Syria during his travels as had been suggested on Wednesday by the French interior minister. But her campaign hit trouble last week when she pledged to make elderly people pay more for their social care.
