Ariana Grande to hold concert in Manchester for bombing victims

"Why was there no outrage for the killing of an Arab and a Muslim in such a cruel way?" she asked. British authorities identified Salman Abedi as the bomber who was responsible for Monday's explosion in Manchester which killed more than 20 people.

A British official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said Manchester police would stop sharing information about their bombing investigation until they received a guarantee there would be no more leaks to the news media.

Twenty-two-year-old Salman Abedi, who British police say was responsible for the Manchester attack, was born in the parents who had entered the country in the 1990s as political refugees from their native Libya. But leaks from the investigation were creating a trans-Atlantic diplomatic mess.

"It's really suggesting that he probably did not act alone, that he probably had some help, that he certainly had some advice on how to create the bomb", said Matt Olsen, former director of the U.S. National Counterterrorism Center and an ABC News contributor.

The reversal comes hours after U.K. Prime Minster Theresa May met with President Donald Trump at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Thursday morning.

After Trump defended his decision to discuss intelligence with the Russians during a White House meeting, May said last week that Britain would continue to share intelligence with the United States.

"These leaks have been going on for a long time, and my administration will get to the bottom of this", he said Thursday. British officials are particularly angry that photos detailing evidence about the bomb used in the attack were published in the New York Times.

The proposed 2018 budget immediately came under attack by Democrats , and even some GOP allies deemed it a non-starter. SNAP cuts could take place through suspending employment waivers , which apply in areas with high unemployment rates.

The 23-year-old, who suspended her tour and returned to her Florida home after the tragedy, said she planned a concert as "an expression of love for Manchester".

Abedi's father and younger brother were arrested in Tripoli in Libya, where the family originally come from.

Another of Abedi's sons, Hashem, was detained on Tuesday evening in Tripoli on suspicion of links to Islamic State, said Ahmed Bin Salem, a spokesman for the Special Deterrence Force, also known as Rada. "Abedi stood up and shouted at the imam, "'You are talking bollocks.' And he gave a good stare, a threatening stare into the imam's eyes".

Mohammed Fadl, a community leader, rejected that account. Police fanned out across Manchester and conducted more raids overnight.

He said he heard that Salman's father took the son's passport away amid concerns about his son's close ties to extremists and criminals, but had no proof of that.

"The situation is normal but the family is a bit confused because Salman doesn't have this ideology, he doesn't believe in these beliefs", he said.
