U.K. po­lice make new ar­rest over con­cert bomb­ing

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - NEWS | ENTERTAINMENT -

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.
