Ariana Grande announces Manchester benefit concert

Troops have been deployed to free up police officers for patrols and investigations.

A surge in the number of hate crimes reported to Greater Manchester Police (GMP) followed in the wake of Monday's attack, the force has said.

Police confirmed Abedi, 22, was behind the attack.

The new insight into Abedi's motivation came as Britons faced stepped-up security, authorities pushed forward with raids and the investigation extended across Europe into Libya, where most of the suspected bomber's family lived.

Investigators are now working to determine if suspected bomber, Salman Abedi, was part of a much wider terror network.

But it was not clear USA officials were the source of the images, which the Times defended as "neither graphic nor disrespectful of victims" and consistent with basic reporting "on weapons used in horrific crimes".

Such anger was reportedly heightened when one of his friends, 18-year-old Abdul Wahab Hafidah, was murdered in the Moss Side area of Manchester a year ago.

Abedi, 22, was a British citizen born to Libyan parents and grew up around Manchester.

The BBC said Manchester police hoped to resume normal intelligence relationships soon but were furious about the leaks.

Grande also tweeted out a link for donating to the British Red Cross and its efforts to support the victims of the concert bombing. "We have faced a serious terror threat in our country for many years and the operational response I have just outlined is a proportionate and sensible response to the threat that our security experts judge we face".
