Ariana Grande Cancels Upcoming Shows After Manchester Attack

The source said that while the bomber may have had some assistance it was also possible that he made the bomb himself.

The 22 victims in Manchester included an eight-year-old girl, several teenage girls, a 28-year-old man and a Polish couple who had come to collect their daughters.

Prior to his detention Ramadan Abedi confirmed that British authorities had arrested another son, Ismail, 23, on Tuesday as part of the concert attack probe. In interviews, Mr Abedi had maintained his son was innocent.

"Initial searches of premises have revealed items that we believe are very important to the investigation". The Telegraph reports Abedin is thought to have returned from Libya just days ago after a three-week visit. A spokesman for the local counter-terrorism force said younger brother Hashem Abedi was arrested on suspicion of links with Islamic State and was suspected of planning to carry out an attack in the Libyan capital.

Ms Rudd noted "the last time the threat level was raised to critical it lasted five days, and before that four days". There was nothing worrying at all until.

Police in Tripoli arrested a brother of Abedi and his father.

- A man is arrested in Withington, a suburb of south Manchester. The elder Abedi was arrested shortly after speaking to the AP, Salem said.

Ramadan Abedi fled to the U.K.in the early 1990s to escape the regime of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, according to The Guardian. He is now a manager of the Central Security force in Tripoli. Al-Libi was on the FBI's most-wanted terrorist list and died in USA custody in 2015.

American officials have been criticised for leaking the identity of the Manchester bomber before British police officially named him.

"It's very clear this is a network we are investigating", Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said.

Manchester bomber Salman Abedi was a "former subject of interest" to the security services whose risk "remained subject to review", a Whitehall source has revealed.

French interior minister Gerard Collomb said British investigators had told French authorities Abedi had probably travelled to Syria as well.

The sweeping investigation has caused friction between US and British security and intelligence officials.

United Kingdom police have stopped sharing information about the Manchester terrorist attack with the U.S., following a series of leaks to media outlets, it has been reported.
