In the wake of the incident, 23-year-old Grande spoke out about the devastation on Twitter. "Thank you, we love you".

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack following an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena, which Prime Minister Theresa May is calling the deadliest militant assault in Britain since four British Muslims killed 52 people in suicide bombings in 2005.

The Manchester attack took place on the fourth anniversary of the killing of British soldier Lee Rigby in London, which was inspired by al-Qaeda propaganda on avenging civilian casualties in the Middle East.
