Police said at least 19 people were killed and around 50 wounded in the attack at the 21,000-capacity Manchester Arena.
Twenty-two people, including the suspected suicide bomber who United Kingdom police know, are dead while nearly 60 others were injured in the blast.
Last night 22 people were killed and 59 were injured in a suicide bombing at Manchester Arena.
"It was nearly like they waited for her to go", she said. A 23-year-old man was arrested Tuesday in south Manchester in connection with the bombing.
Authorities believe they know the identity of the man who carried out the suicide blast. "The cowardice of the attacker met the bravery of the emergency services and the people of Manchester".
Following the bombing, many people have used Twitter for good causes, including spreading images and details about missing people such as 29-year-old Martyn Hett. "And although it is not the first time Manchester has suffered in this way, it is the worst attack the city has experienced, and the worst ever to hit the north of England".
Social media users posted updates saying they had heard loud bangs after a performance by American pop star Ariana Grande.
Officials confirmed to The UK Sun the carnage is being investigated as a terrorist attack.
He said a "complex and wide ranging investigation" was underway.
President Donald Trump, who spoke to May early Tuesday, addressed the "horrible morning of death" during a speech in Israel.
"What I will say is, social media has been an fantastic tool so far in terms of visibility". DM me, they're open! "Everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us as they were trying to exit". "But they're losers. Just remember that", he said.
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth has issued a statement.
"Terror at the arena", said the front of the local daily, the Manchester Evening News. All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people but this attack stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives ...
The first victim of the Manchester terror attack has been named locally as 18-year-old Georgina Callander.
"You don't think it's something that's going to happen when you go.it was such a nice, fun concert". Thousands of people traveled to Manchester for the concert. "We can't get through to her". Everyone started screaming and we almost got trampled on. "There was a burning smell". Most of the 130 dead in the November 2015 attacks in Paris were at the Bataclan concert hall.
