At least 22 people are dead and almost 60 injured in what police are treating as a terrorist incident Monday night at Manchester Arena, where pop singer Ariana Grande was performing!
According to British Transport Police, an explosion took place within the Manchester Arena’s foyer area at 10:30 p.m. local time.
British police have confirmed the explosion at Manchester Arena was caused by a man holding an “improvised explosive device”.
“We have been treating this as a terrorist incident, and we believe at this stage the attack last night was conducted by one man. The priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network,” a police spokesman said.
“The attacker, I can confirm, died at the arena. We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device, which he detonated causing this atrocity.” Police said they would not release information on the attacker, including his name.
