The attack on Manchester Arena was staged by 22-year-old Salman Abedi, a Manchester resident of Libyan descent.

In Manchester, northwest England, feelings were still raw following Salman Abedi's attack on a concert by U.S. pop star Ariana Grande - especially so as the bomber was born in the city.

The New York Times published on Wednesday what appeared to be police photographs showing fragments from the bomb and a backpack used to hide it. It said the database was built around a longstanding US-British system. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility, though British authorities have not determined whether he was truly associated with them or received any assistance while building his bomb or plotting his crime.

United Kingdom authorities have arrested another suspect in the "fast moving investigation" into the terrorist attack on the Manchester Arena, bringing the total number of arrests to ten - with eight men still in custody.

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.
