CCTV images of Manchester bomber on night of attack released

Twenty-two victims including children were killed when Salman Abedi, 22, launched a suicide attack at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena on Monday night.

Police yesterday said they have "got hold of a large part" of the network linked to the attack.

At a press conference at the G7 summit in Sicily on Friday, May said: "Yes, I did raise the issue of leaks of information that have been shared by the police with the Federal Bureau of Investigation with President Trump".

"Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before", she wrote.

Authorities in Libya have detained Abedi's brother and father, while British investigators appealed to the public late Saturday for details of the bomber's movements in the days before the attack, which has been claimed by the Islamic State group.

He blends in with the crowd with his casual attire: a Hollister body warmer, his best Nike Air Jordan trainers, a black baseball cap, navy jeans with turn-ups.

They said the investigation was not slowing, with some 1,000 officers involved, and the priority was to determine if more people were involved in planning the attack.

He says police want the approach to be "unpredictable" and to make London "as hostile an environment as possible to terrorists".

A man working in a local shop, who declined to be named, told Reuters he saw three men being taken away from the address.

Armed police will now guard hundreds of events across the United Kingdom this bank holiday weekend following a reassessment of security after the Manchester bombing.

As a result, soldiers who have been assisting police, would be withdrawn from Britain's streets from midnight on Monday (May 29).

Hundreds of soldiers have been sent to replace police at high-profile sites including Buckingham Palace and Parliament, and police armed with submachine guns are being deployed in city centers, transit hubs, tourist areas and major events.

USA officials told CNN this week that it is likely Salman Abedi received some ISIS training by traveling to Syria in the months before the bombing, according to information gathered in the preliminary investigation.

May argues that the government has increased funding for security and intelligence agencies.

"From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman Tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was meant to be a safe space for my fans", the 23-year-old added.

Ms Rudd spoke after the parents of one of the attack victims warned the Government to "open its eyes" to the terror threat.

It read: "This is what the police has caused and we have nothing to do with what happened in the bombing attack".
