United Kingdom police arrest another man in concert bombing probe

Erik Tate | 01 June, 2017, 01:41

She said that the concert would raise money for the victims of the attack and their families.

The number of arrests in the United Kingdom ticked up to eight as British Transport Police said armed officers would begin patrols on some trains because of an increased threat of terrorism.

Investigators are now focussing on the terrorist network they believe the 22-year-old Manchester-born suicide bomber was part of. Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins said, without elaborating, that searches of suspects' homes brought "very important" clues in the probe of the bombing.

USA and British intelligence officials have said that the explosive had a level of sophistication that suggested a larger network.

British officers said the leaks had caused "distress and upset" to the victims' families. The disclosure infuriated British officials, and Prime Minister Theresa May brought up the leaks with President Donald Trump at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit Thursday.

In the tweet, Grande also said that she plans to spend time with fans in Manchester when she returns to the city and offered support to those affected by the incident. "I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law", Trump said. But it wasn't clear if U.S. officials were the source of the images, which the Times defended as "neither graphic nor disrespectful of victims" and consistent with basic reporting "on weapons used in horrific crimes".

Meanwhile, the investigation into the blast widened.

The photographs also showed nuts and screws for shrapnel and a blue and black Karrimor rucksack that appeared to be carried by Abedi.

Salman Abedi flew into Dusseldorf from Manchester about four days before getting on a flight back to England, Sky News reported, citing German intelligence.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack, calling Abedi a "soldier of the caliphate".
