Man arrested on suspicion of terror offences in Manchester

Greater Manchester police are holding eight people in custody, having released a woman without charge on Thursday.

"Rage was the main reason", for the blast that killed 22 at the end of an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena on Monday, she said, speaking by telephone from Libya.

A man was arrested in Wigan on Wednesday afternoon in connection with the Manchester Arena bombing, with officers assessing a package he was carrying.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said earlier she would tell Trump that intelligence shared between their two countries had to remain secure, in a rare public show of dissatisfaction with Britain's closest security ally. "So that is what it will continue to do for us", she said. -British defense and security partnership is built on trust.

She said that she saw her concerts as a place for her fans "to escape, to celebrate, to heal, to feel safe and to be themselves".

Last night Home Secretary Amber Rudd admitted that Abedi had been known to the British security services, whilst USA intelligence has confirmed he was also known to them. A source at Whitehall said not only will the release of this information upset the families of the victims but there is a risk it will compromise the investigation. Hundreds of soldiers have replaced police protecting high-profile sites, including Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament in London.

"I will make clear to President Trump that intelligence that is shared between our law enforcement agencies must remain secure", May said before departing for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

In Manchester's St. Ann's Square, where a sea of floral tributes grew by the hour, a crowd sang the hometown band Oasis' song "Don't Look Back in Anger".

Britain's Queen Elizabeth speaks to Evie Mills, 14, from Harrogate, her mother, Karen and dad, Craig during a visit to the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital in Manchester, Britain May 25, 2017.

She told Evie Mills (14) and her parents: "It's terrible".


Grande did not mention the date of the concert promising to announce the details after the confirmation of the event.

The teenager credited her father's quick action in picking her up and tying off her wounds to stem the bleeding.

"(This is) a reminder that there is great danger and terrorism and people who would do great harm to others just because they're different, " Mr Obama said. "We are all different but we r free to enjoy each other's company", he wrote in a series of tweets about the aftermath of the terror attack that killed 22 and injured dozens of others. The National Health Service says 75 people have been admitted to eight hospitals, "including 23 patients now receiving critical care". A German intelligence official said: "We must clarify whether Abedi knew people in Syria who he met" in Germany. However, there is no word whether they are linked to the Manchester attack.

"The focus is still the search for accomplices and the network but he could have made this bomb himself", the source said.

Authorities have said they believe suicide bomber Salman Abedi acted as part of a terror network. READ ALSO: 10 held in Manchester attack probe Andy Burnham, mayor of Manchester, complained to the U.S ambassador and said he was assured the leaks would stop.

Hashem Abedi, the attacker's younger brother, has also been arrested.

Mohammed Shafiq, chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, told The Telegraph that community members also reported Abedi to the authorities two years ago "because he thought he was involved in extremism and terrorism".

Manchester is home to one of Britain's largest Libyan communities.

"He used to show me the face of hate and I could tell this person does not like me". His father said he spoke to him around this time and that his son sounded "normal".
