Muslim Terrorist Attack Manchester Video
The suicide bombing took place on Monday night at a crowded concert in Manchester, where thousands of people had gathered to listen to American singer Ariana Grande, whose music is popular with teenagers and children.
The death toll makes the Manchester bombing the deadliest attack of its kind in the UK since the blast that hit London’s transport network in 2005, killing 52 people. Notably, it took place less than three weeks before a British general election scheduled for June 8. All parties taking part in the race have suspended their campaigns until further notice.
American singer and actress, Ariana Grande, says she is devastated and “broken” following the suspected terrorist attack at the Manchester Arena, where at least 22 people were killed amid scenes of chaos and panic at the end of her concert.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to hold an emergency meeting of the government’s crisis body, known as the Cobra committee, after 9am on Tuesday. The investigation into the suicide attack will involve police counter-terrorism units, as well as the MI5, Britain’s domestic security service.
The explosion at Manchester Arena on Monday was a suicide attack, according to the chief constable of Greater Manchester police, who noted that the perpetrator acted alone in detonating an improvised explosive device that killed 22 people, including children, and injured 59 others.
“The attacker, I can confirm, died at the arena. We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated causing this atrocity,” Ian Hopkins, chief constable of Manchester police, told a news conference on Tuesday.
“We believe, at this stage, the attack last night was conducted by one man,” he said, adding that an investigation is underway to establish if the man was part of a network.
