Manchester bomb: 'Signficant arrests and very important items seized'

British media reported that Abdul Wahab Hafidah died after being run over and stabbed in the neck in Manchester's Moss Side district in May previous year.

Police are still hunting for a possible bomb-maker after Abedi, 22, detonated a sophisticated device at the Manchester Arena concert packed with children on Monday night.

The official threat level was raised after the Manchester attack to "critical", its highest level, meaning a further attack could be imminent.

A spokesman for Libya's counter-terror force said: "We have evidence that he is involved in Daesh (Islamic State) with his brother".

"The brother was aware of all the details of the terrorist attack", the statement said.

The Greater Manchester Police chief constable Ian Hopkins announced: "We now have eight people who have been arrested in connection with Monday's attack".

The US should drop its "hostile" policies towards Iran, the country's re-elected President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday. This would all but erode the accord's economic benefits for Iran.

But it does now look as though he was practising to make a bomb'.

In an interview to Guardian, Abedi's father condemned the bombing but said he did not believe that his son could have carried out the attack and said he told him he was going to Mecca.

British police are hunting for potential accomplices who may have helped Salman Abedi build the bomb which killed himself and 22 people in a crowded concert hall after a performance by USA singer Ariana Grande.

Since Tuesday a total of 10 people have been arrested, with eight men aged between 18 and 38 remaining in custody.

The brother of suicide bomber Salman Abedi who killed 22 people when he launched an attack at an Ariana Grande gig in Manchester has been arrested amid reports he was "planning a terror attack in the Libyan capital".

Manchester health officials say 119 people sought medical treatment at the city's hospitals after the attack, and 64 are still hospitalized.

Earlier, U.S. media, also quoting U.S. security sources, identified the assailant as a suicide bomber, well before British authorities confirmed that publicly.

According to the Kalam Research think-tank, which has an office in Tripoli, Abedi's father Abu Ismail left Saudi Arabia for London in 1992 and joined the Islamist Libyan Islamic Fighting Group in 1994.

"I think it's pretty disgusting", said Scott Lightfoot, a Manchester resident, speaking outside a train station in the city.

British police believe Abedi withdrew 250 British pounds ($430) from an ATM before he went shopping in the centre around 7pm (local time), Sky reported.

"We are furious. This is completely unacceptable", a government ministry source said of the images "leaked from inside the United States system".
