Manchester Police Conduct Controlled Explosion During Search for Bombing Links

28 May 2017, 02:03 | Cynthia Sparks

Speaking with the Wall Street Journal, Jomana, Abedi's sister, said she thought her brother was driven to murder because he wanted revenge for "the explosives America drops on children in Syria".

"These searches are connected to Monday's attack on the Manchester Arena, but this is a fast moving investigation and we are keeping an open mind at this stage", police said in a statement.

While it is not known what part Hashem played in the Manchester attack, he told interrogators, according to Libyan officials, that "we knew what we were doing".

Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham told the BBC earlier Thursday that the leaks were "arrogant".

She was welcomed by her boyfriend, the rapper Mac Miller, before heading to her home, media reports said.

"There's extensive investigations going on and activity taking place across Greater Manchester as we speak".

The bomb used in the attack appeared to contain carefully packed shrapnel and have a powerful, high velocity charge, according to leaked photographs from the investigation published by the New York Times.

On Tuesday, U.S. news outlets revealed the identity of Salman Abedi as the main suspect in the attack, despite British security services' caution regarding the secrecy of the ongoing investigation. The paper, without specifying the source, said British authorities provided access to photos of materials found at the scene.

Police said relatives of all those killed had been informed and specialist officers were supporting them.

Police secure the Manchester Arena in Manchester.

"Whether he got that is between him and God". So because of this climate of lack of trust, there are risks to lives, frankly - to citizens who might be the victims of the next attack.

As investigators piece together links surrounding Manchester attacker Salman Abedi, shocking details about his transition from a cannabis-smoking university dropout to the Islamic State group (ISIS) suicide bomber have emerged.

British-born Salman Abedi, 22, who was known to security services, killed 22 people and injured 64 others at the Manchester Arena which was packed with children and teenagers for U.S. singer Ariana Grande's performance on Monday night.


Authorities worry that Abedi might be part of a network of terrorists, many of whom may remain at large.

In total, eight men, including Abedi's older brother, and a woman have been arrested in a series of raids across Manchester, Wigan and Nuneaton.

"It's very clear that this is a network that we are investigating", Manchester police chief Ian Hopkins told reporters.

He is believed to have returned to the United Kingdom from Libya just days before the attack.

Manchester police, meanwhile, made several new arrests. The suspect was in transit only in the security area, Dusseldorf police said.

In 2011, Abedi returned to Libya during the mass uprising that descended into a civil war and ended with Gadhafi's ouster and death.

He said he spoke to his son five days ago and he was getting ready for a religious pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

Police in Tripoli also arrested a brother of Abedi.

Abedi also said he was sure Salman had not been a member of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). CNN has not been able to independently verify the details from the militia.

The bombing also left 64 people wounded, of whom 20 were receiving critical care for highly traumatic injuries to major organs and to limbs, a health official said. "Eilidh was vivacious and full of fun".

Ariana Grande has postponed her tour through June 5 following the terrorist attack on her concert in Manchester, England on Monday. Sorrell's mother and grandmother were both injured, he said.

The Manchester bombing raised concern across Europe. He said his son visited Libya a month and a half ago and was planning to return to Libya to spend the holy month of Ramadan with the family.
