One terrorist is directly responsible for the devastation at a Manchester, England following an Ariana Grande concert.
The attack has killed 22 and injured 59. Now we know a lone suicide bomber detonated an improvised explosive device and in the process killed himself. 400 investigators are now tasked with making sure he acted alone and not as part of a cell.
The bomb went off as people were exiting the arena in the area between the exit and the entrance to the train station. It’s been reported that nuts and bolts were found scattered in the area, but police are not releasing information as to whether they were part of the device.
British Prime Minister Theresa May condemned what she called "an appalling terrorist attack." President Trump, who is in Israel, said he blamed "evil losers" for the attack, adding that he won't call terrorists "monsters" as "they'd think that's a great name." He added: "We cannot stand for a moment longer for the slaughter of innocent people."
At about 8 this morning ISIS released a statement claiming that a soldier of the caliphate placed explosives among a gathering of crusaders -- meaning Christians -- at the Manchester Arena.
This morning Manchester Police arrested someone involved with the attack.
With regards to last night’s incident at the Manchester arena, we can confirm we have arrested a 23-year-old man in South Manchester.— G M Police (@gmpolice) May 23, 2017
