Islamic State Claims Responsibility For Ariana Grande Concert Bombing

The Islamic State terror group Isil has claimed responsibility for the Manchester bombing that killed 22 people - including children - in an explosion that tore through fans leaving an Ariana Grande pop concert in Manchester.

Accoridng to this article in the UK's 'The Telegraph':

In a statement released by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant's official Amaq news agency, they said it was revenge for attacks on "Muslim lands".

"One of the soldiers of the Caliphate was able to place an explosive device within a gathering of the Crusaders in the city of Manchester," it said,  appearing to challenge the Manchester police theory it had been a suicide attack.

The jihadist group also claimed the attack, which killed at least 22 people - including children -  and injured 59 more concertgoers leaving a packed Ariana Grande performance at Manchester Arena, was planned beforehand.

They described the venue as a "shameless".

Isil did not publish a name or picture of the assailant, which they have done for some major attacks in the past. 

If confirmed, it would be the deadliest militant assault on the UK since four British Muslims killed 52 people in suicide bombings on London's transport system in July 2005.

US officials drew parallels between the blast and the coordinated attacks in November 2015 by Islamist militants on the Bataclan concert hall and other sites in Paris, which claimed about 130 lives.


Arrest in Ariana Grande Concert Bombing + Queen's Statement + Theresa May Statement

In news just in, an arrest has been made in connection with the Ariana Grande concert bombing, which killed 22 (updated from 19 people)

And, the Queen  has spoken of her shock. In a statement, she also thanked the emergency services and expressed admiration for the response of people in Manchester.

"The whole nation has been shocked by the death and injury in Manchester last night of so many people, adults and children, who had just been enjoying a concert.

I know I speak for everyone in expressing my deepest sympathy to all who have been affected by this dreadful event and especially to the families and friends of those who have died or were injured.

I want to thank all the members of the emergency services who have responded with such professionalism and care.

And I would like to express my admiration for the way the people of Manchester have responded, with humanity and compassion, to this act of barbarity."

Sadly, the first victim of the attack has been named as Georgina Callander, 18.

She was an Ariana Grande "superfan" from Lancashire who met her idol in 2015 and was excited to see her on stage last night.

Runshaw College, where Callander was a student, released a statement, saying: “It is with enormous sadness that it appears that one of the people who lost their lives in Monday’s Manchester attack was one of our students here at Runshaw College."

An eight-year-old girl, Saffie Rose Roussos, was also confirmed as a fatality after beaming separated from her mother and sister.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May has released a statement also.

This, taken from The Guardian.

She has condemned the attack in the strongest terms possible, saying that it stood out for its “appalling, sickening cowardice”.

"It is now beyond doubt that the people of Manchester and of this country have fallen victim to a callous terrorist attack, an attack that targeted some of the youngest people in our society, with cold calculation.

This was among the worst terrorist incidents we have ever experienced in the United Kingdom. And, although it is not the first time Manchester has suffered in this way, it is the worst attack the city has experienced and the worst ever to hit the north of England ...

The explosion coincided with the conclusion of a pop concert, which was attended by many young families and groups of children. 

All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people but this attacks 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 …

We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not as a scene to cherish but as an opportunity for carnage. 

She said terrorists would never win and the spirit of Manchester and Britain would not be broken. Concluding her statement, she said:

At terrible moments like these it is customary for leaders, politicians and others to condemn the perpetrators and declare that the terrorists will not win. But the fact that we have been here before, and the fact that we need to say this again, does not make it any less true. For, as so often while we experience the worst of humanity in Manchester last night, we also saw the best.

The cowardice of the attacker met the bravery of the emergency services and the people of Manchester. The attempt to divide us met countless acts of kindness that brought people closer together. And in the days ahead those must be the things we remember.

The images we hold in our minds should not be those of senseless slaughter, but the ordinary men and women who put concerns about their own safety to one side and rushed to help, of the men and women of the emergency services who worked tirelessly to bring comfort, to help and to save lives, of the messages of solidarity and hope of all those who opened their homes to the victims. For they are the images that embody the spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain, a spirit that through years of conflict and terrorism has never been broken and will never be broken.

There will be difficult days ahead. We offer our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of those affected, we offer our full support to the authorities, to the emergency and security services as they go about their workand we all, every single one of us, stand with the people of Manchester at this terrible time. And today, let us remember those who died and let us celebrate those who helped, safe in the knowledge that the terrorists will never win and our country, our values and our way of life will always prevail.

Ariana Grande Reaction To Manchester Concert Deaths

What a very sad news story day.

Ariana Grande concert goers at her Manchester concert which ended at 10pm UK time on May 22 will from now share the experience of a horrendous event.

And understandably, Ariana is inconsolable, and "in hysterics" after learning at least 19 people have died as a result of a nail bomb exploding in the rotunda area outside the concert, and near a train station.

Some of those dead are young girls, and a terrorism act has not been ruled out.

Sources in contact with the singer tell TMZ Ariana is devastated that young people who came for a good time are now dead and injured - at least 50 are injured.

The article continues:

We're told her next concert -- Thursday in London at the O2 Arena -- is now up in the air for 2 reasons. It may constitute a safety threat, but also, as one source put it, "She's in no condition to perform."
As we reported, Ariana had just left the stage when a nail bomb exploded in the rotunda area near the front door as people were leaving the concert.  Ariana was not hurt.
These are Ariana's most recent Instagram posts. No official statement or social media post has been released or posted as yet.


Ariana Grande has Tweeted 

broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.
