'Broken' Ariana Grande has suspended her world tour after deadly Manchester attack

British Prime Minister Theresa May will raise concerns with Donald Trump tday 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.

"We are furious. This is completely unacceptable", the source said.

And on Wednesday in Libya, the bomber's father and younger brother were arrested by a Tripoli counter-terrorism force.

The performances were due to go ahead on Thursday and Friday, just days after suicide bomber Salman Abedi blew himself up at the 21,000 capacity venue as crowds left the show on Monday.

British security services were also upset that 22-year-old Abedi's name was apparently leaked by US officials while police in the United Kingdom continued withholding it and while raids were underway in Manchester and in Libya.

Manchester police Chief Ian Hopkins said the story and photographs were "distressing" to victims' families.

British police have arrested two more men in connection with the Manchester attack, taking the number of people in custody to eight, Greater Manchester police said.

Authorities in the United Kingdom believe Salman Abedi, the suicide bomber who killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, likely had the help of a terror network and are hunting for clues to this. The government and police had no comment on the BBC report.

British police arrested two more people and searched a new site in Manchester suspected of links to the concert bombing that left 22 people dead, as British authorities complained bitterly Thursday about investigation leaks by US officials.


The photographs, which appear to show a detonator, metal nuts and screws and a blue Karrimor backpack that might have contained the bomb, were published a day after the suicide bomber's name was leaked to USA media against the wishes of police in Manchester.

Britain raced Thursday to hunt down a jihadist network thought to be behind the Manchester concert attack, as a row escalated between London and Washington over leaked material from the probe.

According to Reuters, the halt in sharing information with the USA will remain in place until Britain gets assurances no further leaks will occur. And she-needless to say-is just devastated, ' he said.

"They were lovely inside and out to ourselves and our families, and they were inseparable", said a tribute from their families posted on Twitter.

His father, Ramadan Abedi, and brother, Hashim, have also been arrested in Libya.

A spokesman said the brother was aware of Abedi's attack plan and both belonged to the Islamic State group, which claimed responsibility for the attack.

Greater Manchester's mayor, Andy Burnham, told the BBC he had raised concerns about the leaks with the U.S. ambassador, while senior Labour lawmaker Yvette Cooper said she was "very troubled" by those occurring in the middle of an investigation where public safety may be at risk.

The official said Turkey had not received any information from foreign intelligence services about Abedi, so he did not raise any red flags.

Fifteen-year-old Millie Robson, wearing one of Grande's T-shirts, told the queen she had won VIP tickets to the pop star's concert.
