Ariana Grande announces benefit concert in Manchester to raise money for victims

Eight suspects aged 18-38 being held in Manchester bomb probe

A 12-volt battery was also found at the site, which could be the bomb's power source, the report says.

Following the terror attack outside Ariana Grande's concert at Manchester Arena on Tuesday, a song released by Grande more than two years ago has climbed music charts.

British soldiers have now been deployed to guard key landmarks including Buckingham Palace and Parliament so that police can focus on potential threats toward civilian targets.

A third suspect, a local woman, was also arrested Wednesday overnight during an armed raid but was later released without charges.

"This is not us", Ramadan Abedi told the news service.

The attacker's older brother, 23-year-old Ismail Abedi, was arrested in Manchester on Tuesday, his father confirmed to The Associated Press.

He said Abedi - who was about 16 or 17 when he took the course, which was designed for students with weak English skills - was a "quiet person, not on the angry side".

According to a family friend who asked not to be identified, the boys' father had taken his sons to Libya in mid-April and confiscated their passports so they couldn't return to the United Kingdom where they'd been in trouble with gangs.

Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton from a Libyan family, moved around repeatedly before the attack.

"Wherever he got that, he didn't get it from this mosque", he said.

Manchester Islamic Centre and Didsbury Mosque Trustee, Fawaz Al Haffar (C), gestrures as he addresses members of the media outside of Didsbury Mosque in Didsbury, Manchester, northwest England, on May 24, 2017. "I've prayed there Fridays, and that's his message".

In a speech in Brussels before the upcoming North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting, US President Donald Trump has described the leaks as "deeply troubling", but they come as the latest in a swathe of information leaked by US intelligence to newspapers under his presidency.

Earlier, interior minister Amber Rudd said the bomber had recently returned from Libya.

President Donald Trump issued a statement Thursday, condemning "leaks of sensitive information" pertaining to the investigation of the terrorist bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester this week.

"I want to reassure people that the arrests that we have made are significant, and initial searches of premises have revealed items that we believe are very important to the investigation", Mr Hopkins said. Once information is gathered, it is given to the National Counter Terrorism Security Office.
