UK police arrests two more suspects linked to Manchester Arena attack
British police said they arrested two more people during raids Saturday in connection with the suicide bombing at a Manchester concert, with a “large part” of the network behind the attack now being held, Agence-France Presse reported.
The two men, aged 20 and 22, were arrested in north Manchester early Saturday after police gained entry to an address using a controlled explosion, AFP added.
The arrests bring to 11 the number of suspects held in Britain over Monday’s blast at a concert by US pop idol Ariana Grande, in which 22 people died and 116 were injured, and for which the Islamic State group has claimed responsibility, according to AFP.
Police in Libya have detained the father and brother of 22-year-old bomber Salman Abedi.
