Manchester Terror Attack Leaves At Least 22 Dead – Including Children

Helpers attend to people inside the Manchester Arena after a suspected suicide bomber detonated an explosive device
A SUICIDE bomber slaughtered at least 22 people – including children – at a packed concert last night in the worst terror attack in the UK since 7/7.

Thousands of adults, teenagers and children screamed and fled in panic as a terrorist detonated a huge bomb – thought to be packed with nails and bolts – as American pop star Ariana Grande’s concert ended.
Witnesses told of seeing shards of metal tearing into concertgoers in the foyer area of the world-famous concert venue – leaving dozens lying in pools of blood.
The horrific blast could he heard echoing through the packed arena as families tried to make their way home as the concert came to an end just after 10.40pm.

The horrific attack came as:
  • At least 22 people died and a further 59 were injured
  • Cops confirmed the attacker was a lone bomber who also died
  • The blast happened in a foyer outside the main hall
  • Cops confirmed “children” were killed in the attack
  • Investigators branded the explosion “terrorism”
  • In the moments after the attack, officers blew-up a suspicious item nearby
  • Terrified family and friends pleaded for information on missing people online
  • Theresa May suspended all election campaigning
Witnesses told how nuts and bolts were sent flying in the blast at the foyer area as fans made their way to Manchester Victoria train station next door.
Prime Minister Theresa May has slammed the "appalling terrorist attack", which came on the fourth anniversary of the murder of British soldier  Lee Rigby.
