Britain deploys troops to prevent attacks after Manchester bombing

Officials are examining his trips to Libya.

The government decided Tuesday evening to put the country on the highest level of alert - "critical", meaning that a further attack "may be imminent".

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.

Abedi was born in Britain to a Libyan family, grew up in Manchester's southern suburbs and attended the local Salford University for a time. Neighbors recalled him as a tall, thin young man who often wore traditional Islamic dress and did not talk much.

Mrs May, a former Home Secretary, will use the opportunity of a meeting of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels on Thursday to speak with Mr Trump about her concerns, according to a United Kingdom government official with knowledge of her plans.

"One of the victims is a serving police officer but, respecting their family's wishes, I will make no further comment at this stage", Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins at a news conference Wednesday.

Manchester police arrested a person during their raid Wednesday at a house only a 10-minute walk from the home of the suicide bomber.

On Wednesday, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told a television interviewer that Abedi had travelled to Syria and had ISIS links.

"The investigation into the terrorist attack in Manchester is large-scale, fast-moving and making good progress", Rowley said. The magazine also wrote that German authorities are trying to determine whether Abedi had contact with Islamic extremists in Germany.

Britain's threat level has only reached "critical" twice before.

U.K. Home Secretary Amber Rudd was reportedly irritated by information released about Salman Abedi and had warned Washington saying: "It should not happen again".

A Polish couple, Angelika and Marcin Klis, who went to the stadium to collect their children, are also among those who died in the attack.

In addition to the fatalities, another 64 people were wounded, several of whom remain hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

"Armed police officers responsible for duties such as guarding key sites will be replaced by members of the armed forces. Therefore he spent a short time in the transit area", police said in a statement.
