Manchester terror attack: United Kingdom officials 'furious' over investigation leaks from US

Salman Abedi spent only a short time at Duesseldorf airport's transit area four days before the bombing at Manchester Arena, Duesseldorf police said, confirming an earlier report in German magazine Focus.

The 23-year-old singer had just left the stage when a suspected nail bomb was detonated by a suicide bomber at the Manchester Arena on Monday.

They said one thread of the inquiry involved pursuing whether Abedi could have been part of a larger terror cell that included Mohamed Abrini, otherwise known as "the man in the hat", with connections to the Brussels and Paris attacks.

Seven other men are in custody in connection with Monday's blast, all are being held on suspicion of offences violating the Terrorism Act.

"This is a fast moving investigation and we are keeping an open mind at this stage".

Cops said they discovered a "working bomb factory", with a stash of chemicals and components that could be used to make another device. At another property, a house a 10-minute walk from where Abedi lived, neighbors said they were awakened by a loud noise and saw a man hauled away in handcuffs. An 8-year-old girl was among the dead.

Rudd said Britain's increased official threat level will remain at "critical" as the investigation proceeds and won't be lowered until security services are convinced there is no active plot in place.

Meanwhile, Britain's home secretary criticised United States officials for leaking sensitive information about the ongoing inquiry into the bombing.

A source close to the investigation into the bombing told Reuters that the focus was on whether Abedi had received help in putting together the bomb and on where it had been done.
