Ariana Grande to Perform Benefit Concert for Manchester Victims

In Manchester, police continued to raid houses and flats across the city on Thursday in pursuit of a network linked to suicide bomber Salman Abedi.

The officials suggested trust had been "breached" and the investigation had been "undermined". British police are irritated that information shared with USA officials has leaked to US media, which reported Abedi's name before police confirmed it.

British police have reopened information-sharing ties with the United States following a spat over leaked evidence from the Manchester bombing, police chiefs said.

Citing unnamed federal security sources, Focus reports that British-born Salman Abedi twice flew from a German airport in recent years and wasn't on any global watch list.

The New York Times published pictures which appeared to show parts of the bomb as well as torn fabric from the attacker's rucksack.

Salman Abedi's father, Ramadan Abedi, was also arrested in Libya.

The terror group has claimed responsibility, but British and USA intelligence have not confirmed that. The musician also said that the she will continue to think of the victims affected by the tragedy for the rest of her life.

Police have arrested 11 people, but two of those were released without charge, police said.

Manchester's mayor, Andy Burnham, told the BBC he had raised concerns about the leaks with the U.S. ambassador, while Labour lawmaker Yvette Cooper said she was "very troubled" by those occurring in the middle of an investigation where public safety may be at risk.

A sobbing Ariana Grande was seen for the first time after the attack at her concert in Manchester Arena.

'These relationships enable us to collaborate and share privileged and sensitive information that allows us to defeat terrorism and protect the public at home and overseas. More than 100 people were injured and 64 are still in hospital.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said detectives had made "immense" progress in the investigation, though warned there were still "important" lines of inquiry to pursue, with further arrests likely.
