Police say they are now holding 11 men, aged between 18 and 44, in custody and have made major progress in their investigation.
"I will make clear to President Trump that intelligence that is shared between our law enforcement agencies must remain secure", she said.
The British investigation is now reportedly focusing on who helped Abedi, and on whether the bomb-maker is still at large.
Twenty-two people, mainly young fans, were killed, with dozens more injured.
British Prime Minister Theresa May will raise concerns with Donald Trump on Thursday about U.S. leaks of intelligence on the suicide bombing in Manchester that police fear could hinder a hunt for a possible bomb-maker still at large.
With Britain's terrorism threat level at "critical", meaning a new attack may be imminent, police are working around the clock to try to deter another atrocity. British police are irritated that information shared with USA officials has leaked to us media, which reported Abedi's name before police confirmed it. They issued a statement on her behalf which said, in part, "Our way of life has once again been threatened but we will overcome this together".
"It's not acceptable to me that here there is a live investigation taking place, and we can not have information being put in the public domain that's not in the direct control of British police and security service", Burnham told the BBC Wednesday. During interrogation, Hashem Abedi revealed that he knew his brother was going to carry out an attack, but he did not know where or when, Dagdoug said.
