Islamic State group claims deadly bombing at Ariana Grande show in Manchester


Prime Minister Theresa May, who arrived in Manchester Tuesday afternoon, described the attack as "absolutely horrific".

Police were initially called to the scene at around 10.30 p.m. local time, when many parents were waiting outside the 21,000 capacity Manchester Arena to collect their children.

Witnesses said they saw bolts and other bits of metal, indicating the bomb may have contained shrapnel meant to maximize injuries. "The other hospital received mostly adults and then there were walking wounded which will have gone to different centres, some of which would have been children", North West Ambulance Service Medical Director David Ratcliffe said.

"My niece and her friend were at the Ariana Grande concert tonight and there has been no contact since the explosion".

IS has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Hours after the horrifying Manchester Arena blast, a 23-year-old man was arrested on Monday by the British police in connection with the terror attack.

Monday's incident could mark the deadliest terrorist attack in England since the London subway bombings in 2005, which killed 52.
