After Manchester Attack, Ariana Grande Still Expected in Bangkok

During a press briefing Wednesday, Ian Hopkins, the chief constable of the Greater Manchester Police, disclosed that an off-duty female police officer was one of the 22 people killed during the bombing.

"They're very significant, these arrests". On that call, he purportedly told his mother: "Forgive me", said Ahmed bin Salem, a spokesman for the Special Deterrent Force.

Since the attack, armed police backed up by the army have been patrolling cities and trains. But Hashem told interrogators that "we knew what we were doing", Libyan officials said.

Hospitals have been warned to be ready.

Grande, whose fan base is dominated by girls and young women, said she had seen a "beautiful, diverse, pure, happy crowd".

The suspect in the deadly Manchester concert bombing was driven by what he saw as unjust treatment of Arabs in Britain, a relative said Thursday, confirming he made a final phone call in which he pleaded: "Forgive me".

She has only occasionally shared personal views, including criticizing double-standards for women in entertainment, voicing support for gay rights and advocating a vegan diet to prevent animal cruelty.

British Airways to resume most flights after global IT failure
BA operates hundreds of flights from Heathrow and Gatwick on a typical day - and both are major hubs for worldwide travel. She said there were "just queues everywhere" and her plane was cancelled at the last minute.

A new poll showed Labour had closed the gap with May's Conservatives to 5 points, suggesting a far tighter race than previously anticipated.

The father of the suspected bomber, identified as Salman Abedi, told the Reuters news agency in the Libyan capital on Wednesday that he had last spoken to his son some five days ago by phone and "everything was normal". A further two people who were arrested earlier in the week have been released.

- Police arrest three more men in South Manchester aged 18, 21 and 24, a short walk from the house where Abedi lived.

The bombing, which took place at the Manchester Arena indoor venue just after the end of a concert by USA pop singer Ariana Grande, was the deadliest in Britain since July 2005, when 52 people were killed in attacks on London's transport network. Buildings across Manchester and northwest England were raided.

US officials also leaked Abedi's name to the media earlier this week, before it had been released in the U.K. British Home Secretary Amber Rudd complained that such leaks could cost police "the element of surprise" in their bid to prevent future attacks.

The leak of intelligence to the United States media has also angered British anti-terror police chiefs.

Salman Abedi wanted "revenge" for deaths of civilians in the Middle East, his sister said.

59 Tomahawk missiles rained on the al-Shayran airbase, which United States security services said had been a storage point for chemical weapons. Abedi was born in Britain to parents who had fled Libya during the four-decade dictatorship of Moammar Gaddafi, and moved back to their homeland several years ago, after the Libyan leader was killed. "We have faced a serious terror threat in our country for many years and the operational response I have just outlined is a proportionate and sensible response to the threat that our security experts judge we face".

The Manchester United and Manchester City Football Clubs announced they have jointly pledged 1 million pounds ($1.29 million) to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund.

"This will not change", she said. "Does the government not expect this?" one voter, who was not named, asked Rudd on the BBC's Question Time programme on Thursday night.

Corbyn promised to reverse the police cuts, many of them implemented by May in her previous role as interior minister, and said Britain could not be "protected on the cheap".

The UK's National Police Chiefs' Council described the "unauthorised disclosure" as a breach of trust which had potentially undermined a "major counter-terrorism investigation". The opposition labeled it a "dementia tax", and May was forced to make an embarrassing partial reversal of the policy.
