Really tragic, with children among the dead. May the victims RIP, and those injured recover in time to come.
Lone attacker blew self up at Manchester concert killing 22, including children, say police
MANCHESTER, England — A lone attacker blew himself up at a pop concert filled with teenagers killing 22 in an apparent effort to harm as many young people as possible, Manchester police said Tuesday.
British Prime Minister Theresa May said it was “now beyond doubt” that it was a “callous, terrorist attack.”
“This attack stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice deliberately targeting innocent defenceless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives,” she said, speaking outside of Downing Street, where flags are flying at half mast.
She called it among the worst terrorist incidents in Britain and “the worst ever to hit the north of England.”
Authorities believe they know the identity of the assailant, she added, “but at this stage of their investigations, we cannot confirm his name.”
