Suspected Manchester bomber's father, brother arrested in Libya

Armed police on guard prior to the start of the Great City Games at Deansgate in Manchester England Friday

Grande is scheduled to perform six dates in Australia and New Zealand in September.

A police spokesman said that the brother had been aware of the attack plan, and that both men were IS members.

Hashim told investigators he knew "all the details" of the attack before it was carried out, and said he and his brother belonged to ISIS, the Special Deterrent Force said. It says he previously flew from Frankfurt to Britain in 2015. He was picked up while allegedly receiving a money transfer from Salman Abedi.

And Libyan security forces arrested Wednesday a younger brother and the father of Abedi, with a family source saying that the brother, like Salman, was also born in Britain.

A string of details about Monday's attack at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena that killed 22 people and injured over 100 others have emerged from United States law enforcement sources before being released by British police or officials.

In a statement, Thinni began by denouncing the Manchester terror bombing and British support for the Presidency Council (PC) which it said was not recognised by the House of Representatives (HoR) and which operated illegally in Tripoli.

"I think it's very clear this is a network we are investigating", Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said, confirming that an off-duty officer was among those killed.

"This suspected terrorist attack will merely strengthen our determination to continue working together with our friends in the United Kingdom to combat those who plan and carry out such despicable acts".

British police on Wednesday made five more arrests, including one woman, in and around the Manchester area after detaining a 23-year-old man on Tuesday.

"That incident stirred up a sense of anger among young Libyans in Manchester and especially Salman, who clearly expressed his desire for revenge", he said.

Collomb said Abedi's links with the Islamic State group were "proven".

Home Secretary Amber Rudd publicly rebuked the U.S. authorities for passing on the information unauthorised, only for more material to surface in the New York Times hours later. "We had the same protests", he told BBC Radio 4.

I have just chaired another meeting of Cobra, where we again discussed the callous and cowardly terrorist attack in Manchester last night, and the operational response from the security service, the police and other emergency services.

The first victim of the attack to be named has been a 16-year-old, who only hours earlier had tweeted her excitement at attending Grande's concert.

May raised the terror threat level in Britain to "critical" following the Manchester bomb, meaning another terrorist attack could be imminent.

A threat level of "critical" allows the government to deploy armed soldiers, as opposed to regular police, at large public events such as sporting events or concerts.

All campaigning was suspended after the attack, although major parties said they would resume some activities on Thursday and national-level campaigning on Friday. Rudd said she had complained to USA officials to make sure the flow of information is staunched. "I heard the news that they are suspecting he was the bomber", the elder Abedi said.

Asked about reports that Abedi had recently returned from Libya, Rudd said she believed that had now been confirmed.

Reuters was unable to independently verify the links to Islamic State or Syria.

According to photographs from the scene of Monday's attack at the 21,000-capacity Manchester Arena, Abedi's device appeared to be fairly sophisticated.

Voicing her concern about the apparent release of information to the U.S. press, Ms Rudd told the BBC: 'I have been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again'.
