What We Know About The Suspect In The Manchester Arena Bombing


The Monday night's attack at a concert by U.S. actress- singer Ariana Grande killed 22 people, all of whom have now been identified by police but their names will be released during the course of this week after formal identifications are complete.

The Islamic State said Tuesday that a "caliphate soldier" was responsible for the attack.

Salman Abedi reportedly used to worship at the same mosque - Didsbury Mosque in the suburbs of Manchester - as Raphael Hostey, who was killed in an air strike past year.

Manchester police have arrested at least eight people in the case, with 22-year-old Salman Abedi being the prime suspect in the bombing.

Manchester police have identified the attacker as Salman Abedi, the son of Libyan immigrants who was born in Britain.

"We have evidence that he is involved in Daesh [an Arabic name for the Islamic State group] with his brother".

Salman Abedi's father Ramadan Abedi has also been arrested.

Tributes left in St Ann's Square, Manchester for the people who died in Monday's terror attack at the Manchester Arena.

Meanwhile, British Police on Wednesday arrested fifth person in connection with the Manchester attack case.

Authorities in Libya revealed the details of the 22-year-old's final call to his family after questioning his father, Ramadan Abedi, and his mother and younger brother in Tripoli.

Seven people have been held in the United Kingdom and Libya since Monday's blast, which claimed 22 lives and injured dozens of people. "She just wants to be with her family and loved ones right now".

As we reported, Ariana is devastated by the terrorist bombing after her concert.

There have been six arrests, including a man literally taken down on the street in Wigan on Wednesday and a woman detained late Wednesday during an armed raid at a block of flats in Blackley, north Manchester.

"We are furious. This is completely unacceptable", an anonymous government official told The Guardian.

The UK terror threat level is now at its highest level of "critical", meaning more attacks may be imminent.
