U.K. police make new arrest over concert bombing
LONDON — British police say they have arrested a 19-yearold man over the Manchester concert bombing, as the hunt continues for accomplices of attacker Salman Abedi.
The Greater Manchester Police force says the man was arrested Friday at Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport on suspicion of terrorism offences. He is being held in custody. 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.
In the days after the attack, police arrested 22 people on suspicion of terrorism offences, but all were subsequently released without charge.
