Manchester Bomber "rang mum to say forgive me hours before attack"

Manchester Bomber

Abedi's father, Ramadan Abedi, was arrested in Tripoli with his brother Hashim, who Libyan security forces said was "aware of all the details" of the attack.

"According to the current state of the investigations, the suspect transferred in Duesseldorf on his travels to Manchester".

He was quiet and withdrawn, a college dropout who liked soccer _ and, some say, showed alarming signs of being radicalised years before he walked into a pop concert at Britain's Manchester Arena and detonated a powerful bomb, killing himself and 22 others.

Asked how long the UK's threat level would remain at "critical", Mr Hopkins said it was a matter for the Joint Terrorism Assessment Centre, but added: "Whilst we've made enormous progress with the investigation, there's still work to do".

Focus magazine, citing unnamed federal security sources, had earlier reported that British-born Abedi twice flew from a German airport in recent years and that he wasn't on any global watch list.

Britain's security level has been upgraded to "critical" meaning officials believe another attack may be imminent. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the information hadn't been cleared for public release.

Salman Abedi made his plea for pardon to his mother and brother shortly before Monday's attack that also wounded almost 120 people exiting an Ariana Grande concert.

"I was really shocked when I saw the news, I still don't believe it", Ramadan Abedi told Bloomberg. "Meanwhile, the investigation continues, eight people are now in custody, it is a live operation and that will continue", she said.

That follows an earlier report from Reuters that Hashem Abedi, Salman's younger brother was arrested by counter-terrorism forces on suspicion of Islamic State links.

He said that his son had visited Libya a month-and-a-half ago and was planning to visit Saudi Arabia.

"Until now my son is a suspect, and the authorities haven't come up with a final conclusion", Ramadan Abedi said in an interview at his home in Tripoli, insisting on his son's innocence.

Another source, a Fox News staffer, also told IJR that Rhodes, an "old pal" of James Murdoch, is a contender to replace Shine. Rich's family has denied the allegations and Fox News retracted the story . "We don't talk about other news networks".

The 23-year-old, who suspended her tour and returned to her Florida home after the tragedy, said she planned a concert as "an expression of love for Manchester".

Still, Fadl said he had heard Abedi's father took his son's passport away over concerns about his close ties to alleged extremists and criminals.

Prime Minister Theresa May had cited the possibility of a broader network of plotters on Tuesday night when she raised Britain's alert level from "severe" to "critical" and announced the deployment of troops to guard key sites.

"The last time we spoke, I told him he should come to fast during Ramadan with us in Libya, and he showed no objection", the father said, "If he had anything in his mind by that time he would've disagreed".
