British police have made another arrest in connection with the deadly suicide bombing at a pop concert in Manchester this week as investigators focus on intercepting the wider terror network the suicide bomber was reportedly part of.
Another brother, 23-year-old ismail, was arrested soon after the attack and is among the eight men now in custody in Manchester.
In the Libyan capital of Tripoli, security forces arrested the bomber's father, Ramadan Abedi, as well as his younger brother, Hashem Abedi.
"Grande also announced that she would return to Manchester to perform a benefit concert in honour of the victims and their families".
"Compared to other people I'm quite lucky really", she said.
"They blocked the whole street", he said, adding that he saw the man handcuffed and taken away in a auto.
In Libya, bin Salem said Abedi's mother told investigators her son left for the United Kingdom four days before the attack after spending a month in Libya.
"Our coverage of Monday's horrific attack has been both comprehensive and responsible", the newspaper said.
Manchester hospitals are still treating 75 people in the aftermath of Monday's bombing attack, including 23 in critical care, according to a statement from NHS England.
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the United States takes "full responsibility" for the leaking of information from Britain's investigation of the Manchester concert bombing.
Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said that only intelligence sharing relating to the Manchester probe had been suspended, adding that "we quite frankly can't afford to risk it any more".
A woman arrested in a raid in Blackley, Manchester, was released late Wednesday without charge, police said. The UK threat level is at its highest level, meaning another attack may be imminent.
Grande tweeted a statement that says "I'll be returning to the incredibly fearless city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor of and to raise money for the victims and their families".
Authorities in multiple countries worked to determine if Salman Abedi, who died in the blast, acted alone or with assistance from a sophisticated cell.
Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, the official opposition to the British government, drew a link between United Kingdom foreign policy and terror attacks as the main political parties resumed general election campaigning Friday, following the Manchester attack. All are men, aged between 18 and 44.
Police disclosed new details about Abedi's' movements, saying he returned to Britain four days before the attack.
