Friend Says Manchester Bomber Was Upset About Stabbing Of Muslim

Ariana Grande wrote a heartfelt tweet Friday in which she vowed to return to Manchester after a terrorist attack outside of her concert Monday night took the lives of 22 people.

Trump has yet to fully respond to the news regarding British intelligence. A French official has said Abedi may have gone on to Syria at some point, too. His father said he spoke to him around this time and that his son sounded "normal".

"We are sure our fans will understand this decision", the team said, adding that the parade would have diverted police from the bombing investigation.

ISIS has claimed responsibility, saying one of its "soldiers" carried out the attack.

Fadl rejected that account, though he conceded he did not witness the incident.

There he blew himself up killing 22 people - a lot of them incredibly young.

"He was very isolated".

Mohammed Fadl, a spokesman for Libyan expatriates in Manchester, said Salman's family was well known in the community, especially his elder brother Ismail, but said Salman "was not socially involved in the community".

Mr Abedi had allegedly told elders at his mosque in Manchester to keep watch on his son.

"I have managed to track down somebody who knows the family", Mr Yousef said. Other sources reported Abedi returned just a few days before the attack to the United Kingdom, where he was lived until as recently as 2016 at his family home in Fallowfield. Upon her arrival in Brussels, May said the U.S. They previously lived in the Fallowfield area in south Manchester for more than 15 years.

She apologized for any pain and offered to "extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours". "They are unjust to the Arabs".

In Manchester, north-west England, feelings were still raw following Salman Abedi's attack on a concert by U.S. pop star Ariana Grande - especially so as the bomber was born in the city.

Greater Manchester Police say Abedi - a British national whose father, Ramadan, comes from Libya - was part of a wider terror network.

Hours before the attack, he had phoned his mother and said "forgive me", according to a Libyan anti-terror official.

Mr Bin Salem said of the final phone call: "He was giving farewell".

Amber Rudd said the move was temporary but refused to be drawn on how long the heightened state of alert would remain in place.

Much of Abedi's background would seem to bely such a sinister trajectory. He went to nearby Salford University to study business, but he reportedly stopped going to class and eventually dropped out. An avid soccer player, he often met up with friends for pickup games.
