UK opposition leader links extremism to foreign wars after Manchester attack

Abedi, a 22-year-old British citizen, blew himself up on Monday night at the Manchester Arena indoor venue at the end of a concert by USA pop singer Ariana Grande attended by thousands of children and teenagers.

Without citing sources, the BBC also reported that police investigating the attack have stopped sharing information with the United States following the leaks.

Britain on Tuesday raised its threat level from terrorism to "critical" amid concerns that the 22-year-old Abedi may have accomplices who are planning another attack.

"We stand defiant", she said.

British police arrested a seventh person on Wednesday in connection with the massacre at a Manchester pop concert that left 22 people dead.

Ten people have now been arrested in connection with Abedi's attack, but a man and a woman have been released. Police declined to identify those individuals, or give information on their potential ties to the bomber, but the 23-year-old man arrested Tuesday is believed to be Abedi's older brother. A 16-year-old was released without charge. "Our coverage of Monday's horrific attack has been both comprehensive and responsible".

He also said that "there is a contest among all the retailers, online and in store, with our good friends at Nintendo ". The retailer managed to make up for it with a jump of 17.1 percent in worldwide sales, according to Shack News .

"While we do not usually comment on information-sharing arrangements with global law enforcement organisations, we want to emphasise that, having received fresh assurances, we are now working closely with our key partners around the world including all those in the Five Eyes intelligence alliance".

Police and security services are also upset that the name of bomber Salman Abedi was apparently leaked by USA officials and published while police in Britain were withholding the name for what they said were reasons of operational security.

The Associated Press reports the brothers' father, Ramadan Abedi, was also arrested in Libya but did not say why. One of the suspect's brothers, Ismail Abedi, is among the eight arrestees.

Elders at the south Manchester mosque believed to have been frequented by Abedi insisted that his actions were wholly alien to their preaching, and pointed the finger at online radicalisation.

Britain's terror threat assessment has been hiked to "critical", the highest level, meaning an attack is considered imminent.

Speaking after a meeting of the government's COBRA crisis committee, May said "the public should remain vigilant". "I think it is fair to say that there has been enormous progress with the investigation, but still an bad lot of work to do". "Meanwhile, the investigation continues, eight people are now in custody, it is a live operation and that will continue", she said.

British police have reopened information-sharing ties with the U.S. following a spat over leaked evidence from the Manchester bombing, police chiefs have said. He said Thursday the searches will take several more days to complete.

"This special relationship that exists between our two countries will certainly withstand this particular unfortunate event", he said.

The bombing came just over two weeks before a snap general election set for June 8.
