Manchester bomber in Germany days before attack

U.K. Home Secretary Amber Rudd was reportedly irritated by information released about Salman Abedi and had warned Washington saying: "It should not happen again".

British police have reopened information-sharing ties with the USA following a spat over leaked evidence from the Manchester bombing, police chiefs said.

On Tuesday, U.S. media revealed the name of the Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi, and cited the information to U.S. officials before the chief of police in Manchester confirmed Abedi's identity.

Citing unnamed federal security sources, Focus reports that British-born Salman Abedi twice flew from a German airport in recent years and wasn't on any global watch list.

MSNBC tops Fox, CNN in weekly primetime ratings for first time
At 8 p.m., Fox News' " Tucker Carlson Tonight" lost to both CNN's Anderson Cooper and MSNBC's "All In" with Chris Hayes . Fox News finished first in total day with total viewers, tallying 1.498M viewers aged 2 years and up.

The New York Times published detailed pictures of the crime scene, including the remains of the suspected bomb and the rucksack worn by the suicide bomber.

The name of the bomber, Salman Abedi, was disclosed to USA media just as raids were underway both in Manchester and in Libya, where the bomber's father lives.

It was the worst terrorist atrocity to hit Britain since the July 7 attacks in London in 2005 and sparked a huge counter-terror probe.

Authorities are keeping an "open mind" as the "fast-moving" investigation continues, the police added. The images were taken in the Arndale shopping mall in Manchester city centre around 8pm last Friday, three days before the bombing.

Armed man arrested by police at Phoenix Comicon convention
However, this did not seem to occur on Thursday, with the armed man slipping through into the convention while fully armed. There will be additional screening and security that will decrease entry points to the venue, possibly causing delays.

But British ministers and security chiefs have been dismayed by leaks in the United States media which made public details about the British investigation.

"As it stands ten people in total have been arrested in connection with the investigation, of which a man and a woman have since been released without charge".

Grande also tweeted out a link for donating to the British Red Cross and its efforts to support the victims of the concert bombing.

"Innocent little girls and so many others were horribly murdered and badly injured while attending a concert - lovely lives with so much great potential, torn from their families for ever and ever".

We must remember true meaning of Memorial Day
Think about that - this is a day to honor those who likely died a violent death to ensure that we could live our lives in freedom. They were able to point out gravesites of family members, veterans and loved ones who had passed away, some over 100 years ago.

May also said "we have a special relationship with the USA".
