Members Of Manchester Attacker's Mosque Knew He Had A Problem

"But I can say that they are perfectly clear about the situation and that it shouldn't happen again".

Sixty-four people are still hospitalized, Jon Rouse of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership said Wednesday.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd said the bomber, Salman Abedi, "likely" did not act alone when he killed 22 people and wounded almost 120 at an Ariana Grande concert Monday night in Manchester. His father Ramadan and younger brother Hashem were detained in Libya, authorities there said.

French Interior Minister GĂ©rard Collomb told BFM-TV that Abedi had "proven links to ISIS", though he did not elaborate.

He said his other son, Ismail, was arrested in England on Tuesday morning. "He saw the explosives America drops on children in Syria, and he wanted revenge", she said.

A British official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said police in Manchester will stop sharing information about the investigation with the US until they get a guarantee that there will be no more leaks to the media.

Images obtained by The New York Times newspaper showed a detonator Abedi was said to have carried in his left hand, shrapnel including nuts and screws and the shredded remains of a blue backpack.

Britain's official terror threat level was raised to "critical", the highest level, late on Tuesday, meaning an attack was expected imminently.

The bombing occurred just over two weeks before a snap general election set for June 8 for which campaigning is set to resume in earnest on Friday after being suspended in the wake of the attack.

The attack was the deadliest in Britain since July 7, 2005 when four suicide bombers inspired by Al-Qaeda attacked London's transport system during rush hour, killing 52 people and wounding 700 more.

Officials say soldiers will be deployed to places like Buckingham Palace, 10 Downing Street and Parliament.

U.S. military officials assigned to Africa Command told CNN that Salman Abedi had been in Libya for three weeks.




The bomb used in the attack appeared to contain carefully packed shrapnel and have a powerful, high velocity charge, according to leaked photographs from the investigation published by the New York Times.

Three days after he returned, Salman Abedi went to an Ariana Grande concert where authorities said he detonated a bomb that killed 22 fans - many of them children and young people - who were leaving the Manchester Arena.

A fifth man, who was carrying a suspect package, was then detained in Wigan, northwest of the city.

Police said relatives of all those killed had been informed and specialist officers were supporting them.

The Chelsea soccer team announced it would cancel Sunday's victory parade in London that was to have celebrated the team's Premier League title win this season.

"The brother was aware of all the details of the terrorist attack", the statement said.

The government said a minute's silence would be held at all official buildings at 1000 GMT (6.00 a.m. ET) on Thursday.

The investigation into the attack is ongoing and the Greater Manchester Police confirmed on Wednesday that it is probing a wider "network" linked to Abedi.

The summit is to be joined by US President Donald Trump, who has lambasted North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for not doing more against Islamist extremism and who called those responsible for the Manchester bombing "evil losers".

Speaking to BBC's Radio 4 Today programme, Ms. Rudd was asked if she will be looking at the information sharing and if it may be working against the wishes of the British police.

France, which has repeatedly been hit by devastating militant attacks since 2015, extended emergency powers.
