Britain braced for possibility of another terrorist attack


Twenty-two people, including children, were killed Monday when a suicide bomber detonated a bomb just outside of a concert Grande had just finished in Manchester Monday. British police are irritated that information shared with USA officials has leaked to US media, which reported Abedi's name before police confirmed it.

"We have been carrying out searches at an address in the Withington area and a man has been arrested".

This undated photo obtained on May 25, 2017 from Facebook shows Manchester-born Salman Abedi, suspect of the recent Manchester terrorist attack. Abedi's brother and father were arrested by a militia in that country after the bombing, the militia said.

Ramadan Abedi fled Tripoli in 1993 after Muammar Gaddafii's security authorities issued an arrest warrant.

Citing unnamed federal security sources, Focus reports that British-born Salman Abedi twice flew from a German airport in recent years and wasn't on any worldwide watch list.

The pictures included the remains of the suspected bomb, the rucksack worn by the suicide bomber and showed blood stains amid the wreckage.

The event, she said, will honor and raise money for the victims and their families.

Fox tops ratings for Manchester attack coverage
It was a week filled with late-breaking news unflattering to President Donald Trump , who much of the network's audience supports. For the month of May through the 21st, Fox News continues to lead in the advertiser demo as well as in terms of overall viewers.

With British police investigating an alleged network linked to the British-born suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, the matter of information leaked to USA media will be taken up by British Prime Minister Theresa May when she meets President Donald Trump at a later North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, the BBC reported.

A police statement didn't provide any details about why the man was arrested, but noted that the department's investigation of Monday's bombing after an Ariana Grande concert was "fast-moving".

Mark Rowley, Britain's top counterterrorism police officer, said authorities have dismantled a "large part" of the network around bomber Salman Abedi.

Grande called for people to come "closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before".

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

May also said "we have a special relationship with the USA".
