Singer Ariana Grande has released a statement following a terror attack at her concert in Manchester, in which she vows to return to the city.
On Wednesday, photographs purportedly showing bloodstained fragments of Abedi’s homemade bomb, including what seemed to be the remains of the device’s battery and detonator, appeared in the New York Times, hours after home secretary Amber Rudd asked USA authorities not to leak material. Eight people remain in custody.
UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd yesterday condemned American officials after CBS disclosed the name of the suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, citing American sources, after authorities in the UK asked information be withheld in order to protect the investigation.
Manchester police say they have made three more arrests in the suicide bombing at a pop concert Monday night that killed 22 people.
Abedi’s older brother was arrested by British authorities in Manchester soon after. Greater Manchester Police say they are working with national police and intelligence agencies in what is being treated as a terrorist incident.
The British intelligence unit has reportedly stopped sharing intelligence with its US counterpart after American media exposed profiles of the suspects of Monday’s explosion at Manchester Arena. “Our coverage of Monday’s horrific attack has been both comprehensive and responsible”.
As chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, McCaul is one of several USA politicians given classified intelligence briefings on topics like the Manchester attack.
Rudd said Britain was making good progress with internet firms on this but more could be done. He said his son was getting ready to visit Saudi Arabia for a short Umrah pilgrimage then planned to head to Libya to spend the Islamic holy month of Ramadan with his family. French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said Abedi had “likely” been to Syria after the trip to Libya, citing information provided by British intelligence services to their counterparts in Paris.
Police have said they have arrested a large part of the network behind the bombing, which killed 22 people at a concert hall, and two more men were arrested on Saturday as police continued to close in on the group.
May will raise concerns over the leaks when she meets U.S. President Trump at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting on Thursday, the BBC reported. Police raided homes believed to be connected with the investigation.
