Bomber Salman Abedi was reported to authorities 5 times for extremist views

The arrests of eight suspects still in custody on Thursday are "significant" in the investigation of the network behind the Manchester Arena terrorist attack, Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said.

The family of an off-duty policewoman who died at the Manchester concert attack has paid tribute to her courage.

Salman Abedi, a Manchester-born 22-year-old, blew himself up outside Manchester Arena at the end of an Ariana Grande concert on Monday, local time, killing 22 people and injuring more than 120.

There have been a series of other leaks from USA officials to the media over recent days about the attack.

A man, carrying a suspicious package, was arrested by the police in Wigan, the north-west region of Manchester, on Wednesday.

Citing unnamed federal security sources, Focus reports that British-born Salman Abedi twice flew from a German airport in recent years and wasn't on any worldwide watch list.

British investigators halt co-operation with the USA after ongoing leaks. It says he previously flew from Frankfurt to Britain in 2015. British media have reported that one of them is Abedi's brother but police have not confirmed that.

He wants to make a firm decision, either way, before Game 1 tips off. "It's a great run - 12-0 is great". "They've been right at the top, best team in the league for three years straight now".

The row - which goes to the heart of the close intelligence-sharing relationship between the transatlantic allies - provides an awkward backdrop to the Prime Minister's meeting with President Trump at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

British police have stopped sharing information on the suicide bombing in Manchester with the United States, the BBC reported on Thursday, because of fears that leaks in the USA media could hinder a hunt for a possible bomb-maker still at large. British officials believe the information released to the American media came from security agencies and not the White House.

His father, Ramadan Abedi, claimed in interviews that his son was not an extremist, but friends of the family said that he was so concerned about his son's radicalisation, that he demanded he move from Manchester to Libya and confiscated his passport.

The bombing, which took place at the Manchester Arena indoor venue just after the end of a concert by USA pop singer Ariana Grande, was the deadliest in Britain since July 2005, when 52 people were killed in attacks on London's transport network. The authorities have raised the threat level in the nation from "severe" to a "critical" level.

Officers also raided a property in the Moss Side area of the city early Thursday and carried out a controlled explosion.

Security forces rounded up more suspects in the deadly Manchester concert blast and soldiers fanned out across the country to national landmarks as an on-edge Britain tried to thwart the possibility of additional attacks.

A woman had also been arrested in Manchester last night during an armed raid on a block of flats in Blackley but was later released without charge.
