    Three arrested in connection to Manchester terror attack


    Manchester:
    Three more persons were today arrested in the UK in connection with the Manchester concert terror attack that killed 22 people, bringing the total number of men in custody to four.

    A 23-year-old man was arrested yesterday in the wake of the attack on Monday night, carried out by a bomber identified as 22-year-old Libyan-origin Salman Abedi.

    The BBC has reported that the man arrested yesterday is Abedi’s brother Ismail. “Three men have been arrested after police executed warrants in South Manchester in connection with the ongoing investigation into Monday night’s horrific attack at the Manchester Arena,” a Greater Manchester Police statement said.

    UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd said yesterday that Abedi was known to security services “to a point” and it is believed intelligence agencies had dug into his connections with the Al Qaeda and Islamic State (ISIS) in his parents’ homeland of Libya. Manchester-born Abedi went to school locally and then studied business management at Salford University, before dropping out from the course.
