  • Manchester Arena suicide bomber may not have acted alone – police

Police have found that Manchester bomber Salman Abedi was essentially financing his life with student loans, a recent report by The Sun details.

'A-19-year-old man was arrested at Liverpool John Lennon Airport on Friday 7 July 2017.

The Libyan-origin suicide bomber, who carried out the terror attack in Manchester city killing 22 people, did not act alone, police said, indicating that more arrests are likely.

British police are now hoping to speak to the terrorist's brother, Hashem Abedi, who was arrested in Tripoli with his father, Ramadan, following the attack and remains in custody in Libya.

Several properties have previously been raided as part of the probe into the attack, with an address in St Helens initially targeted by counter-terrorism chiefs.


A home is now being searched as part of the investigation and the suspect is being quizzed by police.

Twenty-two people were killed May 22 when Abedi, a Briton of Libyan heritage, detonated a homemade knapsack bomb as crowds were leaving an Ariana Grande concert. We do believe further arrests are possible.

Ali Mohamed, visiting a friend at a house across the road, said: "I saw Salman Abedi here".

The police investigation into the attack is expected to continue for "many, many months to come" as police have 16,000 hours of CCTV footage and 755 statements to analyse.
