UK slams US over Manchester attack intelligence leak

Police officers work at a residential property on Elsmore Road in Fallowfield, Manchester, on May 24, 2017, where suicide bomber Salman Abedi is reported to have lived as recently as 2016.

MANCHESTER, England British police hunted on Wednesday for potential accomplices who may have helped Salman Abedi build the bomb that killed 22 people in a crowded concert hall in Manchester and who could be ready to kill again.

The attack killed 22 people, all of whom have now been identified by police but their names will be released during the course of this week after formal identifications are complete.

Prime Minister Theresa May said the blast was timed to "cause maximum carnage" and targeted "the young people of our society with cold calculation".

The searches in the wake of a bombing Monday at the end of an Ariana Grande pop concert included a controlled explosion at a building in the centre of Manchester, Hopkins said.

North Korea has generally frosty relations with Western nations, which are seeking tougher sanctions meant to curb its missile and nuclear programmes. US security officials said Abedi also had a sister named Jomana. Police said the man was arrested in south Manchester.

Kim Kardashian deleted a tweet from Tuesday afternoon about the explosion at Ariana Grande's concert Monday night, after receiving backlash for its content.

A student at the University of Manchester, who wanted to be known only as Miss Lim, said she nearly went to the Ariana Grande concert.

"The father, Ramadan Abedi, has also just been arrested", said Ahmed bin Salem, a spokesman for the police of Libya's Government of National Accord.

How it happened: For the first time in the series, Ottawa struck first, less than five minutes in, courtesy of Mike Hoffman. Whatever got past the defense was stopped by Anderson. "That's what special players do", Stone said of Karlsson.

The Home Secretary said 984 military personnel were being deployed around the country.

Mrs May said: "The work undertaken throughout the day has revealed that it is a possibility we can not ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack".

The head teacher, Chris Upton, said her death was "a tremendous shock to all of us".

At least 22 people, including children, were killed and dozens more were hurt in the attack, which left concertgoers screaming and prompted a massive police response. The last time it was raised to critical was in 2007, while police searched for men in connection to two London vehicle bombs that were disabled and attackers who targeted the Glasgow Airport, injuring 5.

"Please.please retweet. Looking for my daughter and her friend", Michael MacIntyre wrote on Twitter, alongside an image of his daughter Laura and her friend Eilidh.

The Manchester suicide bomber's father and younger brother have both been detained in Tripoli, according to reports. He said the man is named Adel and is in his 40s, with a wife and several children.

Abedi is believed to have family members still in Libya, but so far, the United States has not been able to determine where they are.

Manchester, 160 miles (260 kilometers) northwest of London, is one of Britain's largest cities and Manchester Arena is one of the world's largest indoor concert venues. Officials say 20 of them are being treated for critical injuries.
