The attack is the deadliest terrorist strike in the United Kingdom since suicide bombings hit London's Underground train stations in July 2005.
A "beautiful" primary school girl has been confirmed as the second victim of the Manchester suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert. ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack, but British police have not reported links between Masood and ISIS or other groups. I won't call them monsters because they would like that term.
"She was with her friend Adam, Adam was found about half an hour ago, he's in hospital but Olivia has not been found yet". "We can't get through to her".
"We ran out of the arena and there were bodies on the floor", said the 21-year-old from Keighley in northern England.
Medical officers added that a number of people remained seriously wounded and over a dozen children were hospitalised. In a statement to the media May spoke of the struggle "to understand the warped and twisted mind" that could imagine such a heinous crime, let alone execute it. The horror took place at approximately 10:30 p.m. following the end of Grande's concert.
Witnesses said the blast scattered bolts and other bits of metal, apparently meant to maximize injuries and deaths.
"It was carnage. Everyone was scrambling over each other".
"Everyone was screaming and running", Robert Tempkin, 22, told The Times.
Outside the arena, bleeding victims lay on the pavement.
Joseph Carozza, a representative from Grande's USA record label, said the singer is OK and they are investigating what happened.
"People who wish to help by donating blood can do so at several medical centres in Manchester". They were pouring blood from their leg.
The train station, which is adjacent to the arena, was shut down for coming days, authorities said. Taxis offered stranded people free rides home while some residents invited those without lodging into their homes.
Debbie Mcdowell posted a photograph of Ms Fawell on Facebook with the message: "Please share this picture of my best friend Wendy Fawell who is missing after the bombing in Manchester".
Callander had even met the 23-year-old "Dangerous Woman" singer back in 2015. Ariana Grande tweets that the incident has left her "broken". "What should have been a superb evening is now just frightful".
Queen Elizabeth II described bombing as "act of barbarity". She was a student of health and social care at Runshaw College in Lancashire.
"Saffie was simply a handsome little girl in every aspect of the word". Additionally, all three British intelligence agencies, MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, are undergoing expansions in response to the rise in the radicalization of young people through terrorist websites, and as hundreds of battle-trained fighters who joined jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq return home to Britain and the European continent.
"This wicked ideology must be obliterated". "Ariana is due to perform at The O2 on Thursday and Friday and we will advise as soon as we can as to the status of those shows".
British education officials say that because the attacks could have wide effects at schools, teachers should take the trauma and reaction into account when they decide whether to hold exams.
Now Take That, who were at the Manchester Arena last week and are currently still scheduled to return there this week, have called off a show this evening.
Gary Lineker, another former England worldwide and now a television presenter, summed up a mood of widespread revulsion when he tweeted: "To target children at a concert is beyond comprehension".
"Waking up to the realisation that so many innocent people are dead!"
Manchester itself has seen attacks before, but not this deadly.
The Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) detonated a truck bomb in central Manchester's main shopping area in June 1996, destroying the landmark Arndale shopping center and injuring 200 people.
The head of state has spoken for the country in expressing her support for the families and friends of the 22 people, including children, killed in the blast and the 59 injured.
