Manchester Police Arrest Man As Part Of Concert Bombing Inquiry

The suicide bomber who killed 22 people at a concert in Manchester did not act alone, police believe.

Now Greater Manchester Police hope to speak to Hashem as part of their investigation.

'A-19-year-old man was arrested at Liverpool John Lennon Airport on Friday 7 July 2017.

A property on Thelwall Avenue in Fallowfield, Manchester is being searched as part of the investigation.

Detective Chief Superintendent Russ Jackson, head of counter-terrorism in north-west England, said that Abedi had carried the explosive device through the streets of Manchester for "several hours" before blowing up at his intended target.

Salman Abedi, a Briton of Libyan heritage, detonated a homemade knapsack bomb as crowds were leaving Manchester Arena on May 22, killing 22 people and himself.

The military estimates up to 350 militants are dug in among civilians in wrecked houses and crumbling infrastructure. Aid organizations say Islamic State has stopped many civilians from leaving, using them as human shields.

Mr Jackson said: "We don't have evidence of a large network".

"We do believe that there are other people potentially involved in this".

He said officers were "engaged" with the authorities in war-torn Libya where Abedi's brother, Hashem, is now being held.

Brit authorities now believe "more arrests are possible", confirming they are liaising with authorities in Libya about warped bomber Salman Abedi's brother over the atrocity in May. "We do however believe further arrests are possible". They're working with the Libyan government to have Abedi's brother Hashem turned over as well.

Flowers and messages for the victims of the Manchester Arena attack are seen in central Manchester, Britain May 23, 2017.

The man who was arrested today could be a relative - local newspaper the Manchester Evening News quotes a neighbor who says, "The boys who live there are related to Salman Abedi through their father".
