Philadelphia vigil to honor victims of Manchester bombing

Philadelphia vigil to honor victims of Manchester bombing

An apparent suicide bomber attacked an Ariana Grande concert as it ended Monday night, killing 22 people among a panicked crowd of young concertgoers, some still wearing the star's trademark kitten ears and holding pink balloons as they fled. The attack, happening at the end of an Ariana Grande concert, left 59 people injured and more than twenty others dead.

The US media outlets CBS and NBC identified the attacker as Abedi earlier Tuesday.

Abedi was born in Manchester to Libyan emigrants, The Telegraph reported.

The University of Salford, based in Manchester, said in a statement that Abedi was one of its students and it was helping the police with their investigation.

The statement says police will treat the incident as a terrorist attack until they know otherwise. One other person was arrested at the Arndale Centre, although authorities said it was not immediately clear whether the person was connected with the bombing.

More than £4,000 has been raised for a homeless man who held a dying woman in his arms after he rushed inside Manchester Arena to help terror attack victims. A European security official told the AP he was British.

President Donald Trump called the perpetrators "evil losers".

Robin Wolff, from Agoura Hills, California, said she has accompanied her 15-year-old daughter Brooke to Miley Cyrus and One Direction concerts.

"It is now beyond doubt that the people of Manchester, and of this country, have fallen victim to a callous terrorist attack - an attack that targeted some of the youngest people in our society with cold calculation", May said outside her London office at 10 Downing Street. At least 19 people have died in the suspected terror attack.

Saffie Rose Roussos, the 8-year-old, was attending the concert with her mother and sister, The Guardian reports. Hospitals officials say the wounded included 12 children under 16.

A DNA test on the stomach of one of three crocodiles shot during the investigation found a match to Van Zyl, the BBC reported . There are many videos and photographs of him with his clients, posing with kills including elephants, buffalo and leopards.

The Islamic State terror group claimed responsibility for the barbaric attack, which involved a home-made device packed with nuts and bolts which exploded in the venue's foyer as thousands of young people were leaving.

As a result of that decision, the police had asked for military support to keep the public safe, in line with existing plans for such an eventuality, May said.

Witnesses said they saw bolts and other bits of metal, indicating the bomb may have contained shrapnel meant to maximize injury and death. Grande, who was not injured, tweeted hours later: "broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words".

Callander met Grande at a concert two years ago, and condolences began to fill the comments on the Instagram photos posted of the meeting.

She told the Press Association: "I$3 just heard a huge bang from my bed, came out to the front of my apartments (we're on the top floor so have ideal view) and everyone was running away in big crowds". The city was hit by a huge Irish Republican Army bomb in 1996 that leveled a swath of the city center.
