Ariana Grande to hold benefit gig in Manchester this weekend

British police made two more arrests and stormed three more locations Sunday as they hunted for suspects in the Manchester bombing, while a government minister said members of attacker Salman Abedi's network may still be at large.

Manchester police said in a statement the 44-year-old man had been arrested in the city as part of their inquiry into Monday's attack, "but this is a fast-moving investigation and we are keeping an open mind at this stage".

Police used an explosive device Saturday to get into a property in Manchester to arrest two men, aged 20 and 22.

Britain's senior counter-terror officer said "immense" progress had been made in the probe into the associates of suicide bomber Salman Abedi and a "large part" of his suspected network had been dismantled.

Police have issued a photograph of Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton born to Libyan parents, taken on Monday night before he blew himself up and said they believed he had assembled his bomb in an apartment in the city centre.

Meanwhile, sporting events and concerts have taken place across the United Kingdom amid heightened security following Monday's atrocity.

Britain on Saturday reduced its terror threat level from critical - its highest level - to severe. "We thought he must have been a drug dealer or doing witchcraft", Mr El-Hudarey told the broadcaster.

In the Libyan capital Tripoli, Abedi's younger brother 20-year-old Hashem and their father, Ramadan, are being held by special forces linked to the country's interior ministry.

But he insisted that the other countries understood Trump's refusal to decide now, even if they did not support that position. However, the other G7 leaders pledged to "reaffirm their strong commitment to swiftly implement the Paris Agreement ".

"That is all different layers, different tiers, it might be just a question mark about one of them or something serious with that top list", she said. Dozens of IS fighters were killed in USA strikes in Syria on Friday, while masked gunmen killed at least 28 people in an attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt.

Hundreds of soldiers replaced police at high-profile sites including Buckingham Palace and Parliament, and police armed with submachine guns have been deployed in city centers, transit hubs, tourist areas and major events.

Before kickoff, Prince William laid a wreath in memory of the victims alongside Manchester mayor Andy Burnham.

He says there were "strange" things happening at the property during the time he rented it.

Palestinian security prisoners' hunger-strike ended
The prisoners have only been drinking a mixture of salt and water since 17 April, the Middle East Monitor reports. The end of the strike came in time for the holy month of Ramadan, which began Saturday night.

"They will be on my mind and in my heart everyday and I will think of them with everything I do for the rest of my life", Grande wrote. The singer has invited performers who are friends of hers to participate. "We have protected counter-terrorism police funding, we've increased the funding for our security and intelligence agencies and we continue to provide them with the support they need", May said.

"Everything should go on as normal", said Chelsea fan Steve Barrass, who came from Manchester to watch the FA Cup in London with his son.

Northern rail said Friday that Manchester Victoria Station "suffered structural damage that still needs to be properly assessed and repaired. We won't let hate win".

Georgina Callander, 18, was killed in the blast shortly after her favourite artist Ariana Grande left the stage at the Manchester Arena on Monday.
