Isil claims responsibility for Manchester Attack - Amaq

Additionally, all three British intelligence agencies, MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, are undergoing expansions in response to the rise in the radicalization of young people through terrorist websites, and as hundreds of battle-trained fighters who joined jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq return home to Britain and the European continent.

"We now know that a single terrorist detonated his improvised explosive device near one of the exits of the venue - deliberately choosing the time and place to cause maximum carnage and to kill and injure indiscriminately", she said.

David Leavitt, whose Twitter profile states that he is a freelance writer for CBS as well as several other media outlets, is feeling the heat this morning as a result of tweets he made immediately following news of the bombing that took place following Ariana Grande's Manchester concert last night.

NBC News reported on the blast that killed 22 people and injured 59. They're losers. And we'll have more of them.

"So please think of those who are experiencing unimaginable worry and if you have any information at all relating to the attack please contact Greater Manchester Police", she said.

"This is a fast-moving investigation..."

Parents were searching desperately Tuesday for children caught up in the attack on a pop concert in the British city of Manchester, after police confirmed youngsters were among the 22 victims.

The Manchester Arena bombing is the worst attack in Britain since the July 7, 2015, bombings in which 52 people were killed.

The 14-year-old remains unaccounted for after last night's concert. I understand teenagers and children have been caught up in what the police has confirmed to be a terrorist attack.

The first victim of the Manchester attack to be named was 18-year-old Georgina Callander from Leyland, Lancashire.

After the attack happened, the emergency services and many other people in Manchester came to help those in need.

The police believe that attack was carried out by one person.

"Our way of life will always prevail", she asserted.

The Queen's remarks came after Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the "appalling terrorist attack".

British education officials say that because the attacks could have wide effects at schools, teachers should take the trauma and reaction into account when they decide whether to hold exams.

Anxious family and friends have been appealing for help to find loved ones who have not been in touch since the Manchester Arena bombing.

Many people on social media have been keen to spread the message that terrorism doesn't have a religion.

Manchester, a heavily industrialised city, some 260 km from London, is home to a significant number of people from South Asia.

Out of respect for the victims, May and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn agreed to suspend campaigning for Britain's June 8 general election until further notice.

May chaired an emergency Cobra (Cabinet Office Briefing Rooms) meeting here in the wake of the blast.

On Tuesday, the Arndale shopping center near the Manchester Arena was evacuated after an explosion was reported, though police said it is not related to the bombing on Monday.
