BREAKING: Bombing at Manchester Concert

At least 22 people, including children, have been killed and 59 injured in a suicide bombing at a crowded music concert where Ariana Grande was performing in Manchester, the most deadly attack in Britain in a decade.

Police say attacker died after detonating ‘improvised explosive device’ in foyer of concert hall

The horror unfolded at about 10.30pm on Monday at the end of a concert by the American singer Ariana Grande, whose music is popular with children and teenagers.

The attack, which took place in the foyer area of the arena, left hundreds of people fleeing in terror, with young people at the concert separated from their parents in the chaos. It left carnage inside the concert venue, with medics describing treating wounds consistent with shrapnel injury.

One witness said he could see nuts and bolts strewn on the floor of the foyer after the attack, which could suggest a nail bomb was involved.

Britain’s prime minister, Theresa May, said: “We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack. All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected.”

The attack came less than three weeks before Britain’s general election on 8 June . In response, all parties have suspended campaigning.
