UK police: 19 confirmed dead in explosion at Grande concert

Ariana Grande has just tweeted that she is "broken" after 19 people were killed in a suspected terrorist attack following her concert in Manchester last night.

Hours after the incident, the star tweeted that she was "broken" by the attack and "so, so sorry". "I don't have words".

Youthful fans who were at USA pop star Ariana Grande's concert in Manchester and parents waiting for their children outside described scenes of panic after an explosion ripped through the foyer on Monday night.

A witness who attended the concert said she felt a huge blast as she was leaving the arena, followed by screaming and a rush by thousands of people trying to escape the building.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the blast was being treated as a terrorist attack.

The Dangerous Woman Tour started in Phoenix, Arizona, on February 3 and she was joined by British pop stars Little Mix during a spell in the US.

"A huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena", concertgoer Majid Khan, 22, told Britain's Press Association.

It is understood that her next scheduled concert, which is due to take place on Thursday in London, may be cancelled.

"We saw young girls with blood on them, everyone was screaming and people were running", Sasina Akhtar, told The Manchester Evening News.

Campaigning has been suspended in Britain's national election after a deadly explosion at Manchester Arena. She is said to be "in hysterics" and "inconsolable" after learning about the attack.

Greater Manchester Police released the following statement: "Emergency services are now responding to reports of an explosion at Manchester Arena".

Officials are investigating the incident as a possible suicide bombing.

A third Twitter account, Deplorable MrsK, posted a picture of a young man smiling and wearing a suit, saying: "My son was at the Manchester Arena today". I'm still finding bits of God knows what in my hair.

On social media, people shared videos of people rushing from the arena and ambulances arriving. In November 2015, gunmen killed 90 people at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris during a performance from American rock band Eagles of Death Metal.

A US Department of Homeland Security statement said it was "closely monitoring" the situation and added that the department has "no information to indicate a 'specific credible threat involving music venues in the United States'".

Pearson said: "It's the worst kind of people who could even consider doing something like this and quite frankly those sort of people, they deserve the worst punishment ever". Her fans, proud "Arianators", were among those who took to Twitter with prayers and tears.

Braun went on to thank the emergency service workers who quickly came to the aid of affected concert-goers.
