More Arrests in Connection with Deadly Manchester Arena Bombing

More Arrests in Connection with Deadly Manchester Arena Bombing

The explosion killed 22 people, ranging from an eight-year-old schoolgirl to parents who had come to pick up their children.

Family members shouted at the Rada men, calling them "dogs", as Abedi was handcuffed and driven away. "The only thing I saw was the bottom half of the suicide bomber".

British Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Wednesday that American leaks about the Manchester bombing investigation were "irritating" and that he had "been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again".

"And as I've said, it continues at a pace. There's extensive investigations going on and activity taking place across Greater Manchester as we speak". "We don't believe in killing innocents", Ramadan Abedi said before he was detained in Tripoli.

Before his arrest, Abedi's father said he had last spoken to his son five days ago and he sounded "normal".

Ahmed bin Salem, a spokesman for the Special Deterrent Force in Libya, said Abedi placed his final call to both his mother and a brother.

Salman's 20-year-old brother Hashem was arrested in Libya late Tuesday night, according to officials there, who said the young man told authorities that he had been involved in planning the attack on the concert hall in Manchester.

Gerard Collomb said on BFM television Wednesday that British and French intelligence have information that British-born attacker Salman Abedi had been to Syria.

Sri Lanka rescuers find bodies as flood deaths reach 146
Sri Lanka has appealed for outside help as dozens were killed in floods and mudslides and dozens others went mis. Almost 2,000 houses have suffered structural damage or been completely destroyed, according to official figures.

Authorities in Britain have become increasingly angered by United States leaks from the investigation, including the bomber's name on Tuesday and the photos of blood-stained fragments from the bomb on Wednesday.

"When the trust is breached it undermines these relationships, and undermines our investigations and the confidence of victims, witnesses and their family", the group said. A US law enforcement official later authenticated the photos and said they had been provided by British authorities to American investigators, CNBC reported.

The sweeping investigation has caused friction between USA and British security and intelligence officials.

The new explosive discoveries came as British Prime Minister Theresa May said she would appeal to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders to combat terrorism by addressing its root causes and the "propagation of poisonous ideology, particularly online".

Terror network behind Manchester bombing?

Cities including Paris, Nice, Brussels, St. Petersburg, Berlin and London have suffered militant attacks in the last two years.

Other Manchester connections under investigation, the officials said, include a 50-year-old former Guantanamo Bay detainee, Ronald Fiddler, also known as Jamal al-Harith.

Trump's trip: Conventional images and unconventional talk
Abbas has previously demanded a freeze on settlement construction before returning to the negotiating table. Muslims historically have been divided mostly between the Shiites and the much larger sect of Sunnis.

The United Kingdom's terror threat level was raised to its highest level after the attack, and almost 1000 soldiers were deployed to help police monitor high-priority areas, particularly in London.

But with just over two weeks to go until a national election, May's Conservatives and political parties said they would resume campaigning in the coming days.

Salman Abedi, 22, was born in Britain to Libyan parents. An initial deployment of 984 had been ordered, first in London and then elsewhere.

Armed police officers stand near the Manchester Arena, where US singer Ariana Grande had been performing on Tuesday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to raise the issue of the leaks with President Donald Trump in Brussels later Thursday.

The BBC reported that security services thought the bomb was too sophisticated for Abedi to have built by himself.
