Manchester Police Arrest 3 Men In Connection To Arena Bombing

It was the deadliest attack in Britain since July 2005, when four British Muslim suicide bombers killed 52 people in coordinated attacks on London's transport network.

The attack left at least 22 dead, including an 8-year-old girl, the latest apparent victims of Islamic extremists seeking to rattle life in the West. We struggle to understand the warped and twisted mind that would bring carnage to young children.

Police also said officials arrested a man at the Arndale shopping center in central Manchester - but that the arrest is not believed to be connected to Monday night's attack.

The move to critical status has triggered "Operation Temperer", Britain's emergency plan that replaces police officers with soldiers at key public locations like major tourist sights, airports and public transportation, in addition to sports venues and concerts. "The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking".

More than 200 people were injured, although no one was killed. On Sunday, she tweeted the singer, saying, "SO EXCITED TO SEE YOU TOMORROW".

She was a student at Runshaw College in Leyland, Lancashire, where administrators expressed "enormous sadness" and said they would offer counselling to students.

Meanwhile, the Sun newspaper reported that authorities were also looking at the possibility that Abedi had traveled to Syria from Libya without drawing the notice of British authorities. Twelve of those rushed to hospital were children.

Twenty-year-old Jess, who was at the concert with her sister, Hannah, 17, described to Manchester Evening News the moment she heard the huge explosion.

Ms Grande, 23, a USA singer, attracts legions of young female fans to her concerts, chaperoned by parents.

Mr Hett, from Stockport, is believed to have been at Monday's Ariana Grande concert with his friend Stuart Aspinall when the pair became separated.

"If one person sees it and that one person sees her, we can get her back", he said. She sent out a message on Twitter to say she was "broken" by the blast and the deaths.

The attacker set off his improvised bomb as crowds streamed out of the Manchester Arena after a pop concert by Ariana Grande, a US singer especially popular with teenage girls.

In Monday night's attack, 22 people died and almost 60 were sent to hospitals after an explosion struck in the area between the concert venue and the adjacent transit station.

U.S. President Donald Trump, on a visit to the West Bank city of Bethlehem, called the perpetrators "evil losers" and said "this wicked ideology must be obliterated". The great city of Manchester has been affected by terrorism before.

Now, investigators are attempting to learn whether the university dropout attended a terrorist training camp in Libya, where ISIS and Al Qaeda fighters are engaged in a bloody war against government forces.

Olivia Campbell, 15, whose disappearance after the terror attack sparked an emotional United Kingdom television plea for information, has been confirmed dead.

"It's meant to shock", said Mr William McCants, a senior fellow at the Centre for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution and an authority on the Islamic State, which claimed responsibility for the Manchester assault.
