Manchester Police Arrest 3 Men In Connection To Arena Bombing

Police officers have arrested three more men as part of the investigation into Monday's bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

"We do know that he was known up to a point to the intelligence services", she told Sky News.

Rudd said up to 3,800 soldiers could be deployed on Britain's streets, taking on guard duties to free police to focus on patrols and investigation. "Making a bomb of this sort requires a certain level of expertise and competence", the source said. The traditional ceremony is a major tourist attraction in London. By noon Wednesday, no official announcement had been issued by either the O2 or the tour promoters as to whether the London dates were still a go.

Ramadan and his wife emigrated to London to escape Libya's former dictator Muammar Gaddafi before moving to south Manchester.

He said the man used to wear traditional white Islamic dress, was aged in his 20s, 6 ft.

The Metropolitan police has confirmed that there would be more stop and search and vehicle checkpoints with nearly 1,000 British soldiers being deployed on streets from Wednesday.

United Kingdom home secretary Amber Rudd said that Abedi was known to security services "up to a point" and it is believed intelligence agencies had dug into his connections with Al Qaeda and Islamic State (ISIS) in his parents' homeland of Libya.

Gerard Collomb told French television that both British and French intelligence services had information that Abedi had been in Syria. British officials, however, have not commented on whether Abedi had links to IS or other extremist groups.

Interior minister Amber Rudd said Salman Abedi had likely not acted alone, and troops were being deployed to key sites across Britain to help prevent further attacks after the official threat level was raised to "critical".




She also complained about US officials leaking sensitive information about Abedi to the press.

Asked about reports that Abedi had recently returned from Libya, Rudd said she believed that had now been confirmed.

A pupil at Tarleton Primary School her head teacher, Chris Upton, said she was "loved by everyone".

Sixty-four people are still hospitalized, Jon Rouse of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership said Wednesday.

Parker said he wrapped an injured girl in a T-shirt and tended to a woman with a serious leg injury after the blast, the Guardian reported.

Officials said all those hospitalized had been identified.

In March, a British-born convert to Islam plowed a auto into pedestrians on London's Westminster Bridge, killing four people, before stabbing to death a police officer who was on the grounds of parliament. London Police Commander Jane Connors said the goal is to "make our city as hostile an environment as possible for terrorists to plan and operate".

"I would expect this to be temporary but we will keep a close eye to see how long we need them for and when it's appropriate we end Operation Temperer and go back to our different levels", Rudd said.

May, who called the attack "appalling" and deliberate, reiterated the tragedy will only further unite their nation.
