United Kingdom police arrest 9th man in Manchester bombing probe

The identities of the men and any charges against them have not been revealed.Police officers stand next to floral tributes left for the victims of an attack on concert goers at Manchester Arena, in St Ann's Square, in Manchester, Britain May 24, 2017.The most recent arrest, of a man aged 44, was made on Friday in the Rusholme area of Manchester. The government said nearly 1,000 soldiers were deployed Wednesday in high-profile sites in London and elsewhere, replacing police, who can work on counter-terrorism duties.

Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday placed the country on its highest level of terror alert - "critical" - meaning a new attack is believed to be imminent. Libyan authorities said Abedi's brother had been aware of the attack plan.

According to media reports, Abedi was known to United Kingdom security services, but his risk to the public remained "subject to review". His parents were born and lived there before moving to Britain in the early 1990s.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama, meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel at an event in Berlin, said the pair were "heartbroken", while Trump told fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders the attack was "savage" and "barbaric".

The tragedy took the lives of 22 innocent people and injured more than 100 others.

London police say extra security is being added for major sporting events this weekend including the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.

Williams said "covert and discrete tactics" will also be employed to protect the transport network.

British police working on the case have resumed intelligence-sharing with USA counterparts after a brief halt because of anger over leaks to US media thought by Britain to be coming from US officials.

British Prime Minister Theresa May warned U.S. President Donald Trump during a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Thursday that the special relationship between the countries could be harmed by the repeated leaking of confidential details.

The leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party says there is a link between Britain's actions overseas and the increased extremist threat at home. "I'll be returning to the incredibly courageous city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour and raise money for the victims and their families", she wrote in a message on Twitter.

Seven other men are in custody in connection with Monday's blast, with police and security agencies working to prevent further attacks.

In a statement Thursday, Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins provided an update on the ongoing investigation.
