Ariana Grande announces Manchester benefit concert

The Manchester concert killer used taxpayer-funded student loans to learn how to build the nail-filled bomb he detonated outside of an Ariana Grande show, according to a report on Friday.

Grande was last seen arriving in her native Boca Raton, Florida where she is now staying with her family.

"Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before", she added.

Police have issued a photograph of Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton born to Libyan parents, taken on Monday night before he blew himself up and said they believed he had assembled his bomb in an apartment in the city center.

"There will be more arrests and there will be more searches", he said.

Amid increased security at United Kingdom events this weekend, Mr Rowley urged the public to "go out as planned and enjoy yourselves".

Following the deadly attack at the Manchester Arena at an Ariana Grande's concert earlier this week, the singer has announced a benefit concert in the United Kingdom city to raise money for the victims and their families.

Hundreds of people have been evacuated London's Old Vic Theatre during a performance and police say they are on the scene.

British Prime Minister Theresa May says the country's threat level from terrorism had been reduced from its top level of "critical", which indicates an attack is imminent. "Our priorities are to understand the run up to this awful event and to understand if more people were involved".

Greater Manchester Police did not reveal where it was taken or at what stage of the evening. These operations, as well as one at Manchester Arena, will continue over the weekend.

"I have sent a personal message to the faith leaders and places of worship across Greater Manchester today, thanked them for their support, and shown that we will not tolerate hate crime here in Manchester".

He said the numbers can not be directly linked to the attack.

"We will be thinking about all the people who died and were injured", she said.

Authorities have detained a total of 11 people since the attack, but a 16-year-male and an adult woman were released without charges.

Media have reported that people who knew Abedi had raised concerns about him and his views as long ago as five years before he carried about Monday's attack.
