British PM upgrades threat level, says 'further attack may be imminent'

British PM upgrades threat level, says 'further attack may be imminent'

"A huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena", said 22-year-old concertgoer Majid Khan.

Many at the concert were young girls and teens enthralled by Grande's pop power.

Officials are examining Abedi's trips to Libya and possibly Syria as they piece together his allegiances and try to foil any new potential threats. Her daughter, 15-year-old Olivia Campbell, didn't pick up her phone after the gruesome attack outside an Ariana Grande concert.

Mr Haffar said he remembered seeing Abedi's father praying. "This is not us". A video posted on Twitter showed fans screaming and running out of the venue. Now he is a manager for the Central Security force in Tripoli.

Queen Elizabeth held a minute's silence at a garden party at Buckingham Palace in London. Armed police were seen on patrol outside St Paul's Cathedral in London, another popular tourist spot.

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

Suicide bomber Abedi was born in Britain to a Libyan family, grew up in Manchester's southern suburbs and once attended Salford University there. He was described by neighbors as a tall, thin young man who often wore traditional Islamic dress, but few said they knew him well.

Monday's attack came just over two weeks before Britain votes in a general election and is the latest in a series of deadly incidents across Europe. He said the man is named Adel and is in his 40s, with a wife and several children.

"We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not as a scene to cherish but as an opportunity for carnage", she said.

"Dearest Georgina, may your kind soul rest in peace".

No one has yet been charged in the case and police have not identified the suspects.

President Trump Touches Down In Israel, Says 'Rare Opportunity' For Peace
President Rivlin thanked Trump for his "commitment to Israel's ability to face the threats of today and of tomorrow". Trump has indicated a desire to restart the Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations that broke down in 2014.

"The security wasn't very good, to be honest, " she said. "As we came outside to Victoria Station there were just people all over the floor covered in blood".

At least 20 heavily armed, helmeted police surrounded a modest red brick house listed as Abedi's address in a mixed Manchester suburb at midday on Tuesday and blasted down the door.

The Islamic State group's claim of responsibility echoed others the extremists have made for attacks in the West but with vague details that left open the possibility it was an opportunistic attempt at propaganda.

British officials have not commented on whether Abedi had links to IS or other extremist groups.

She also complained about US officials leaking sensitive information about Abedi to the press, saying that could take "the element of surprise" away from Britain's security services and police.

Rudd said that it was "likely, possible, that he wasn't doing this on his own".

Asked whether the United States leaks had compromised the investigation, she said: "I wouldn't go that far but I can say that they are perfectly clear about the situation and that it shouldn't happen again".

Even before the suicide bombing that killed 22 people at a Manchester, England, arena Monday night, the Chicago Cubs were evaluating ways to make the area around Wrigley Field safer.

Jon Rouse of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership said 64 people were still hospitalized, many with serious wounds that will require "very long term care and support".

Spokesmen for MLB and the NFL said the leagues continue to improve and modify security plans as necessary in conjunction with law enforcement officials. The move, declared Tuesday evening, means members of the British military will be deployed throughout the country to supplement its police forces.
