Manchester police arrest man, 25, in bomb probe

Hundreds of soldiers replaced police at high-profile sites including Buckingham Palace and Parliament, and police armed with submachine guns have been deployed in city centers, transit hubs, tourist areas and major events.

Abedi, 22, was listed at the property along with his older brother, Ismail, who was arrested shortly after the terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert and remains in police custody.

Police arrested two more men as they closed in on a suspected network behind bomber Salman Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton born to Libyan parents, and said they had a greater understanding of how his device was made.

Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police Ian Hopkins said: "We have seized thousands of exhibits which are now being assessed".

Grande, meanwhile, promised to return to "the incredibly fearless city of Manchester" to hold a benefit concert for the victims.

Both Salman Abedi and his father, Ramadan, reportedly had long-standing links to a violent jihadist group which may have had British backing for the 2011 Libyan war and the 1996 attempt to kill then-Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

Floral tributes for the victims of the Manchester Arena attack, in St Ann's Square, in central Manchester, Britain May 27, 2017.

There was a visible police presence as runners gathered on the start line for the Manchester run on Sunday morning.

Images of the Manchester bomber taken moments before Monday's massacre were released late on Saturday as a wave of arrests fuelled hope that further terror threats had been quelled.

However, Home Secretary Amber Rudd warned members of the attacker's circle were "potentially" still unaccounted for.

"Our response to this violence must be to come closer together, to help each other, to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before", she writes.

Police made two more attests on Saturday, bringing the number of suspects in custody to 11.

On Saturday, Prime Minister Theresa May said the terror threat had been reduced from "critical", meaning an attack was believed to be imminent, to "severe" meaning an attack was "highly likely".

They also have published CCTV images of Abedi on the night of the attack, which show him wearing a hat, glasses, and a dark top.

Counter-terror authorities are handling 500 investigations into 3,000 individuals now, while it was disclosed on Friday that around 20,000 people are considered former "subjects of interest".

"But I would not rush to conclusions ... that they have somehow missed something".

Georgina Callander's family said the 18-year-old's life had been cut short by "evil, evil men prepared to ruin lives and destroy families".

A statement issued by the Greater Manchester Police read, "We have made significant progress in this fast moving and complex investigation, working with the national counter terrorism policing network and United Kingdom intelligence partners and securing the arrests of 11 people who remain in custody".
