Manchester bomber's brother denies involvement in attack

Hashem Abedi was issued with an arrest warrant by British police

"I want to thank all those involved for their commitment to this investigation and the successful extradition of Hashem Abedi".

Sadek al-Sour, Libya's prosecutor, told Bloomberg the decision to extradite Abedi was made after he had a chance to argue his case in Libya's court of appeal.

The brother of Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi is being extradited to the United Kingdom from Libya over his potential role in the 2017 terror attack.

Salman Abedi, 22, from Manchester, whose family settled in the United Kingdom from Libya, detonated his device at the end of the pop concert.

Police said Hashem Abedi, 22, would appear at Westminster Magistrates Court on Thursday.

Libya on Wednesday extradited to Britain the brother of a suicide bomber who attacked an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in May 2017 and killed 22 people, officials said.

Abedi was born in Manchester in 1994, after his parents fled Muammar Gaddafi's regime in Libya. The brothers grew up in Manchester but moved back to Libya in 2017.

New rumors suggest Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy Watch Active 2 will boast ECG heart rate tracking like the Apple Watch Series 4 . The Galaxy Tab S6 features a groove in its back to slot in a stylus, which makes sense for two products created to use together.

Abedi was transferred from a prison at Mitiga International Airport and handed over to British authorities, the security officials added.

As of July 2019, no-one has been charged over the attack, despite police raids after the bombing - 23 were arrested in the United Kingdom, and all released without charge.

Children were among the 22 killed in the blast and hundreds were injured. British authorities have sought Hashem's extradition for almost two years, saying he was involved in planning the lethal attack.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid tweeted: "Hashem Abedi has now landed on United Kingdom soil".

The Tripoli government is now seeking Western support as it battles forces loyal to Khalifa Hifter, a veteran Libyan general who launched an offensive against the capital in April.

"Whoever is found responsible for this great evil must face justice. The extradition proceedings are in progress", he said.

"He has today been successfully extradited for offences relating to the Manchester Arena attack", it said.
