Ariana Grande to perform benefit concert in Manchester for bombing victims

Another man has been arrested in the Manchester area in connection with the investigation.

Police in Manchester, England, on Friday arrested a 44-year-old man as authorities continue to investigate this week's suicide bombing outside a concert that killed 22 people.

However, police needed any information the public might have about his movements from May 18 when he returned to Britain.

British Prime Minister Theresa May will confront U.S. President Donald Trump over leaks of intelligence about the suicide bomb attack at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Thursday, the Guardian newspaper said.

Grande did not offer an update on when she meant to resume her Dangerous Woman Tour, which was suspended in wake of the attack.

Manchester police detectives carried out the arrests after executing controlled explosions during ongoing searches in the early hours of Thursday morning. The terror group claimed responsibility for the attack.

The victims were soldiers and former fighters trying to stabilize the region after a 2015 agreement with the government. One of the main topics at the G7 is expected to be climate change and a U.S. threat not to ratify the 2015 Paris Accord.

Salman Abedi, 22, was identified as the bomber and was believed to have been killed in the blast.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said after chairing a security meeting in London that she would "make clear" to US President Donald Trump that shared intelligence must be secured. They also said they had released a woman without charge after she was arrested in Blackley.

A Whitehall source described the second U.S. leak as "on another level", and said it had caused "disbelief and astonishment" across the British government.

In a statement both defiant and heavy with emotion, the pop star on Friday wrote to her fans, saying "we won't let hate win" and "we won't let this divide us".

British officials were infuriated by the leaks but believe USA law enforcement was responsible for them, not the White House.

At least 22 people were killed and dozens others wounded when a suicide bomber blew himself up at the end of a concert by U.S. singer Ariana Grande outside the Manchester Arena.
