Police arrested two more people and were on Thursday searching a new site in Manchester suspected of links to the bombing that killed 22 people at a pop concert, as British authorities complained bitterly about investigation leaks by USA officials.
A 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the investigation.
The man, whose identity remains unknown, is one of nine men who are being held for questioning in England following Monday's attack.
Police made two more attests Saturday, bringing the number of suspects in custody to 11.
The latest arrest took place in the Rusholme ward of Manchester on Friday and followed by a few hours the detention of another suspect in the inner-city Moss Side neighbourhood, Efe news reported.
They said the investigation was not slowing, with some 1000 officers involved, and the priority was to determine if more people were involved in planning the attack. Dozens more who were injured remain hospitalized, more than 20 of them are listed in critical condition. In a personal letter posted to her Twitter account, the singer announced a return to the city in support of her fans and a benefit concert to support the victims and their families. Grande has cancelled concerts scheduled for Thursday and Friday in London, and in several other sites in Europe. In a statement Friday, she said "I'll be returning to the incredibly fearless city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour of and to raise money for the victims and their families".
