United Kingdom police stop sharing information on Manchester attack with U.S. after leaks


CNN said British police have temporarily restricted the release of information. The security alert was later lifted.

The club dedicated the trophy to those killed, while manager Jose Mourinho said they would gladly exchange it if it could bring their lives back.

The terror threat level in the United Kingdom has been reduced from critical to severe and soldiers deployed to key sites around the country will begin to be withdrawn from Monday, Theresa May has said.

"I wouldn't go that far but I can say they are perfectly clear about the situation and that it shouldn't happen again", Rudd said when asked about that.

Abedi's father and one of his brothers are also reported to have been detained in Libya.

French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said British investigators had told French authorities Abedi had probably travelled to Syria as well. "The focus is still the search for accomplices and the network but he could have made this bomb himself", the source told Reuters.

Born and raised in Manchester, Abedi attended the Burnage Academy for Boys, a school with a large proportion of ethnic minority students, from 2009 to 2011.

Bin Salem said Libyan investigators think, based on what Hashim Abedi told them, "the bomber acted alone".

The leak came after the name of the alleged attacker, 22-year-old Salman Abedi, was reported by U.S. media on Tuesday, quoting U.S. officials, before British police had released it publicly.

May raised the matter with Trump as they gathered for a group photograph at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit. The U.S. Justice Department said it had initiated steps to address the "rampant leaks", which it said could not be tolerated.

"Having received fresh assurances, we are now working closely with our key partners around the world including all those in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance", he said.

"Very few people in the community here were close to him, and therefore Salman's fanaticism wasn't something the community was aware of", he said.

Queen Elizabeth II visited Royal Manchester Children's Hospital on Thursday to talk to some of the victims, their families and medical staff. "It's dreadful.Very wicked, to targe".

Ballons and flowers are seen in Albert Square in central Manchester, northwest England on Wednesday.

In return they are hoping for a public display of commitment from Trump to Article 5 , the alliance's one-for-all collective defence pledge.


British police investigating the terror network behind the Manchester Arena attack have reportedly stopped providing relevant information about the case to United States intelligence.

Abedi detonated his "nuts-and-bolts" bomb at the end of the gig as children, teenagers and others were making their way out of the auditorium. Numerous victims were young children. The UK and U.S. share a vast amount of information about terror and espionage threats - its a tight-knit network that also encompasses Canada, Australia and New Zealand. May said at the time Britain would continue to share information with Washington.

On Wednesday, the New York Times outraged British police and government officials when it published photos appearing to show debris from the attack.

"We will be thinking about all the people who died and were injured", she said.

"The images and information presented were neither graphic nor disrespectful of victims, and consistent with the common line of reporting on weapons used in horrific crimes", the paper said.

A spokesman for an anti-terror force in Libya says the suspect in the Manchester bombing attack telephoned his mother hours before the attack and said, "Forgive me".
