Manchester attacker's father, younger brother arrested in Tripoli - spokesman

Manchester attacker's father, younger brother arrested in Tripoli - spokesman

Police officers have arrested three more men as part of the investigation into Monday's bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

British Prime Minster Theresa May will meet US President Donald Trump at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Thursday, but officials said she would cut short the second leg of her trip to the G7 summit in Italy.

But shortly after the interior minister complained, The New York Times newspaper again scooped British authorities and other media by publishing photographs from the scene of remnants of the bomb.

He said they had been anxious that Abedi was "supporting terrorism" and he had expressed the view that "being a suicide bomber was OK".

The National Counter Terrorism Policing body said the breach of trust caused great "damage" and "undermines our investigations".

Al Jazeera's Rob Matheson reports from Manchester.

Abedi's younger brother Hashem has also been arrested in Libya, on suspicion of having links to ISIS, who claimed responsibility for Monday night's atrocity.

A government source told the Guardian newspaper, "Protests have been lodged at every relevant level between the British authorities and our U.S. counterparts".

He was "aware of all the details" of his brother's plans, a Libyan security force official said and had been "under surveillance for a month and a half" before his arrest today.

The Cavs will look to come out with a renewed focus in tonight's game based on their "letdown" in the previous contest. During the conference semifinals, James told cleveland .com that he had nothing left to prove in pro basketball.

But his visit to and activities in Libya have also prompted further investigation from intelligence agencies, which are working to establish whether Abedi made connections with radical groups in the country during his visit.

"I think he saw children-Muslim children-dying everywhere, and wanted revenge", Miss Abedi told the paper.

"Greater Manchester Police have stopped passing information on bomb probe to United States after leaks to USA media", the BBC broadcaster said it has been told.

"This act of cowardice has no place in our religion", said Fawzi Haffar, a trustee at the Didsbury mosque.

"In any case, the links with Daesh are proven", he said, using a term for IS. Another 2,800 troops are being deployed elsewhere in Britain.

Four suspected extremists have also been arrested in Berlin over the past 24 hours, Brunt added.

May was to hold a meeting of Britain's emergency committee on Thursday before heading to Brussels. The US singer had been scheduled to perform two shows at London's O2 arena this week.

A total of 64 people are being treated in hospital, including 20 in critical care, medical officials said. Twelve of the injured are aged under 16.

Canceled shows include two performances at the O2 Arena in London (May 25-26), a concert at the Sportspaleis in Belgium (May 28), two shows at Atlas Arena in Lodz, Poland (May 31-June 1), and concerts at Festhale in Frankfurt, Germany (June 3) and Hallenstadion in Zurich, Switzerland (June 5).
