Latest on investigation into Manchester concert bombing

LONDON -- CBS News confirmed Tuesday that the man who blew himself up the previous night at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, was 23-year-old Salman Abedi, who was known to British authorities prior to the attack.
In a generic statement posted online, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for Abedi's suicide bomb attack, which left 22 people dead, including children, at one of the entrances to the Manchester Arena.
Officials said one man was arrested Tuesday in southern Manchester in connection with the attack, and urged people to avoid the center of the city as operations continued. Police and British Prime Minister Theresa May made it clear the focus of the investigation was to determine whether the bomber "was acting alone, or was part of a wider group."
ISIS issued its claim of responsibility in a brief, generic statement that did not identify the bomber and appeared to get some of the facts of the attack wrong. It claimed a "caliphate soldier managed to place a number of devices among a gathering of crusaders in Manchester, and detonated them."
Officials say there was only one explosion, and there have been no indications that other devices were discovered at or near the arena.
U.S. intelligence sources told CBS News they were exercising caution on the early claim of responsibility from ISIS. Authorities are still looking into whether it was a killer who acted alone or who might have had some level of support from the terror network. U.S. intelligence officials were offering assistance in the investigation, as is standard practice in any case involving a close ally.
ISIS has repeatedly called for its supporters in the West to attack "soft targets" like sports events and concerts in any way possible.
Previous attacks in Europe and the U.S. have been claimed by individuals who support ISIS and have made contact with its members, but who were not directly supported or guided by the terror network.
Manchester police confirmed the arrest of a 23-year-old man in the southern part of the city on Tuesday morning. They also said there was at least one controlled explosion carried out at the scene of a raid.
The suspect taken into custody on Tuesday was not identified, but police said the arrest was linked to the bombing. Witnesses said the man was smiling as he was apprehended.
The bomb was designed to kill and maim as many as possible; many of the survivors suffered shrapnel wounds and ball bearings were found at the scene.
There was security at the concert, but the bomber apparently didn't try to get into the venue, instead blowing himself up in an entrance foyer area as concertgoers flooded out of the arena. Prime Minister May said the attacker had deliberately chosen "his time and place to cause maximum carnage" in the young crowd.

NWN: Here we go again.  And the nonsense being spouted on social media is enough to make you commit suicide. The British public are downright clueless. The "We must all gather together .....as one community blah blah blah" mantra, is being played for all it's worth... again.

You will make a real killing flogging candles in Albert square this evening. Yet another 'vigil' where people stand there and nothing happens. The very same people will have forgotten about this by the weekend.

 We are told to be 'vigilant'. But who are we supposed to be looking out for ? 

"Oh, you can't report 'them' as that would be racist. We have asian doctors dont'cha know ?"

If we stopped supporting the neo-con/zionist led USA in the Middle East and hammering and bombing places like Libya and Iraq into the dust and now wanting to get involved in Syria, we might not suffer stuff like this.

Plus, the open door policy of letting 100,000's of heaven knows who from wherever in the world, we might stop any further types like the character last night from entering the UK. But apparently Salman Abedi is 'British' !

Dr. William Pierce predicted stuff like this, and he has been dead for over 15 years. He predicted we had best get some 'hard -hats'.
