Concert bomber asked mom to forgive him hours before attack

ABC News said that counterterrorism officials fear whoever built the bomb that killed 22 people and injured 64 others may have built other improvised-explosive devices which could be used in further attacks.

The number of arrests in the United Kingdom ticked up to eight as British Transport Police said armed officers would begin patrols on some trains because of an increased threat of terrorism.

In a video message posted online by Salman's father less than 48 hours after the Manchester Arena blast, the older man cast doubt on his son's involvement in the bombing, saying that he renounced violence and the killing of innocent people.

British police and security services are also upset that the name of British bomber Salman Abedi was apparently leaked by USA officials and published while police in Britain were withholding the name for operational security.

"We will continue in honor of the ones we lost, their loved ones, my fans and all affected by this tragedy", Grande ended her note.

Britain's terror threat assessment has been hiked to "critical", the highest level, meaning an attack is considered imminent.

Federica Mogherini, the head of European diplomacy, has expressed condolences to the loved ones of the victims and the citizens of the United Kingdom on behalf of the European Union.
