Brother of bomber faces trial in Libya
THE brother of Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi will be tried in Libya over his role in the attack, the country’s chief investigator in the case said.
Hashem Abedi was held in the war-torn country following the atrocity at the Manchester Arena in which 22 people died.
Libya’s chief investigator in the case Asadiq Al Sour said Abedi is suspected of having helped his brother and collected materials for the attack.
Their father Ramadan, who was also detained in Libya, has been released, it has been reported.
British police have already questioned Abedi in Tripoli several times.
Authorities in Libya have given British police a list of names of people in the UK who they say should be questioned.
