Ariana Grande announces benefit concert for Manchester

The force said in a statement: "We immediately established full command and control of the incident and within an hour of the attack taking place a specialist counter terrorism control room had been established with a first priority of identifying the attacker". These operations, as well as one at Manchester Arena, will continue over the weekend.

When asked how many potential militants the government was anxious about, Rudd said the security services were looking at 500 different potential plots, involving 3,000 people as a "top list", with a further 20,000 beneath that.

"I have sent a personal message to the faith leaders and places of worship across Greater Manchester today, thanked them for their support, and shown that we will not tolerate hate crime here in Manchester". Photos showed an army bomb-disposal unit at the property.

May says it now stands at "severe", meaning an attack is highly likely.

A total of 11 people have been arrested in the United Kingdom, including Abedi's 24-year-old brother Ismail, but two were later released. Mohammed El-Hudarey, a friend of the landlord, said after Abedi moved out about six weeks ago there was a strong smell of chemicals and debris including metal rods and cut-up fabric. Prince William will lead the tributes, laying a wreath alongside Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham on the field before the kickoff.

More than 1,000 armed police are on standby as major events including the FA Cup Final on Saturday evening and the Premiership Rugby Final are expected to draw tens of thousands of people. The stadium held a minute of silence for the bombing victims.


Greater Manchester Police said the man was detained Friday night in Rusholme, an inner city area of Manchester, "on suspicion of offenses contrary to the terrorism act". "But I grew up in Ireland, so bombs did go off there and life does go on".

"We will be thinking about all the people who died and were injured", she said.

"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", Grande wrote in a statement posted on her Twitter account.

A total of 66 people remain in hospital, with 23 in critical care.

She continued: "Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before". "We won't let hate win".
