Ariana Grande plans show for Manchester attack victims

Ariana Grande to hold concert in Manchester for bombing victims

The leak of intelligence to the United States media has also angered British anti-terror police chiefs. Some of the photos showed remnants of blue material from what appeared to be a Karrimor-branded backpack.

The suspected bomber grew up in Manchester's southern suburbs and once attended Salford University there.

Greater Manchester Police hopes to resume normal intelligence relationships - a two-way flow of information - soon but is now "furious", the BBC understands.

The concert bombing that left 22 people dead Monday night and dozens hospitalized raises the question of what, if anything, could have been done to stop him.

Links have also emerged between Abedi and a Manchester terror cell, according to counter-terrorism sources cited by Sky News television.

On his first official trip to Britain as US secretary of state, Rex Tillerson said "all across America, hearts are broken" by the attack.

The New York Times on Thursday defended its publication of photographs of evidence collected at the Manchester bombing crime scene.

Former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott became the first major British politician to suggest that it was time to review all of the UK's intelligence sharing with the US.

"The issue is being raised at every relevant level by the British authorities with their U.S. counterparts". "We won't let hate win".

Both Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Congress said the relationship with Britain was too valuable to undermine with leaks."If they don't feel comfortable sharing information, that can be a significant obstacle in terms of the worldwide terror fight", said Senator Ron Wyden, a Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The investigation into the Manchester Arena atrocity has continued apace as security agencies swooped on the suicide bomber's suspected "network".

59 Tomahawk missiles rained on the al-Shayran airbase, which USA security services said had been a storage point for chemical weapons. Citing unnamed federal security sources, the report says that the British-born Abedi twice flew from a German airport in recent years and wasn't on any worldwide watch list.

Early on Thursday morning, detectives carried out a controlled explosion as they searched a property in the Moss Side area of Manchester.

A man arrested on Tuesday was reported by British and United States media to be Abedi's other brother. She flew home on Tuesday after releasing a brief message saying she felt "broken".

Meanwhile, Abedi's father and a younger brother have been detained by militia in Libya.

Belgian security services were repeatedly accused by French authorities of failing to prevent extremists from the largely Muslim Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek from plotting the November 2015 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people.

The Conservatives and Labour are to resume local general election campaigning on Thursday, and national campaigning on Friday.

What's happening with the investigation?

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".

The militia also said the younger brother was planning a new attack, in Tripoli.
