Manchester United halts practice to honor victims of terror attack

UPDATE 05/22, 8:13 PM EST: The Greater Manchester Police have just released a statement that 19 people are confirmed dead and around 50 others are injured. The bomber, a man who police say arrived alone, was not inside the arena when he detonated his explosives.

"The fact that they hit a concert I think is more coincidental", said worldwide security expert, author and Rutgers political science associate professor Wojtek Wolfe.

Many parents were waiting for their children in and around the Manchester Arena when the blast rocked the foyer of the venue as thousands of young fans and parents streamed out following the gig on Monday evening.


"Highly unlikely her gigs on Thursday and Friday at the 02 will go ahead", Grande's representatives told Sky News.

Ariana Grande was not injured in the blast, a representative said. "It was nearly like they waited for her to go". "It was chaotic. Everybody was running and screaming and just trying to get out". "What should have been a superb evening is now just disgusting".

All general election campaigning has been suspended until further notice. Roughly 400 police officers were involved in the traumatic scene.

Meanwhile, an unverified video has also appeared on the social media purportedly showing a man claiming "loyals" of ISIS were behind alleged "nail bomb" attack inside Manchester Arena. "The thought that anyone could go out to a concert and not come home is heartbreaking".

A resident of the block said: "A variety of people live here".

Those among the missing is Olivia Campbell, a 15-year-old girl who attended the concert with a friend from school.

Among the names being circulated was Olivia Campbell.

Grande began her career as a 15-year-old in the Broadway musical, 13, and on the Nickelodeon TV series Victorious.

The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack. Following a meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in the West Bank city of Bethlehem on Tuesday morning, President Donald Trump expressed solidarity with the United Kingdom and labeled the perpetrators of the attack as "evil losers".

"This wicked ideology must be obliterated". This wicked ideology must be obliterated, and I mean completely obliterated. He has been named as Salman Abedi, a 23-year-old who was "known" to police. The source added that once Grande is emotionally ready to discuss it, she and her team will decide what they want to do in regards to the rest of her tour dates, especially where security is concerned.

Pop concerts and nightclubs have been a terrorism target before.

Those youngest victims were on the minds of many who tweeted their support after the attack.
