UK PM May says threat level raised to "critical" after Manchester attack

Frederick Owens | 24 May, 2017, 07:01

In a sign of the increased threat, the military could be deployed to support armed police officers, Mrs May said.

In the first hours after an attack on this scale investigators will be sifting through a number of theories as they work to settle on the most likely lines of inquiry.

"His Holiness Pope Francis was deeply saddened to learn of the injury and tragic loss of life caused by the barbaric attack in Manchester", the Vatican wrote in a statement.

"We are working to establish the full details" of what happened, May said in a statement, after an explosion created panic during the end of the American singer's concert at Manchester Arenan attended by some 20,000 people.

President Donald Trump blasted the "evil losers" behind the deadly attack: "This was an evil act... so many young and lovely innocent people murdered by evil losers".

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed the arrest of a 23-year-old man in south Manchester in connection with Monday night's bombing attack at the Manchester Arena.

Islamic State (ISIS) supporters who, according to U.S. President Donald Trump "worship death", hailed the May 22 terrorist attack in Manchester as a victory against "the crusaders" of the West.

The explosion is being treated as a terrorist attack.

One of them was Sam Arshad, owner of Street Cars Manchester, who realized something wasn't right when he drove past Manchester Arena around 10:30 p.m. She praised police and security services, who acted in accordance with the plans they have in place and the exercises they conduct to test those plans.

The Prime Minister confirmed that following a review of intelligence, the United Kingdom terror threat level will remain at Severe, meaning a terror attack is "highly likely". "I had exactly the same distance to get out of any of the doors".

"We will never be beaten", he said. These cars just pulled up and all these police with guns, dogs, jumped out of the vehicle and said to us: "'Get in the house now, '" said Simon Turner, 46.

"It felt like an eternity", Harries said, but it "couldn't have been more than two, three minutes from in our seats to outside of the arena".

"Things are ongoing. Greater Manchester Police is keeping me updated".

British Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday said the Manchester Arena bombing in which 22 people died was a "callous terrorist attack" targeting children.

I want to reiterate what I said this morning about the professionalism of the emergency services and the bravery of the people of Manchester.

Mr Corbyn said: "I am horrified by the horrendous events in Manchester last night".
