Man held over Manchester attack released without charge

Suicide bomber Salman Abedi killed 22 people May 22 at Manchester Arena, police said.

Ismail Abedi was filmed being handcuffed to a police van outside a Morrisons supermarket in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, south Manchester on May 23.

The brother of Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi has been released without charge by police.

A total of eight people have now been released without charge.

He's been arrested on suspicion of offences contrary to the terrorism act.

Authorities arrested a 24-year-old man last night in Rusholme, an inner-city area of Manchester, it said in a statement.

The 11 men still in custody are aged between 18 and 44 and are being held on suspicion of terrorism offences.

Detective Chief Superintendent Russ Jackson said: "This is potentially a significant development in the investigation".

United States pop star Ariana Grande visited young fans injured in the suicide bombing on Friday night.

Others touched by the visit posted pictures on social media, including a group shot with Grande among the nurses caring for the children hurt in the blast.

Authorities reportedly believe 22-year-old Abedi, from Manchester, made two phone calls to numbers in Libya - where his family lives - that were not registered to his relatives.

Grande returned to Britain on Friday ahead of the One Love Manchester concert on to benefit victims.
