Manchester attack: Desperate search for missing Ariana Grande fans

23 May 2017

A 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the Manchester concert bomb attack which killed 22 people, including children, and injured dozens more in the worst terrorist incident to hit Britain since the July 7 atrocities.

Manchester Arena, the largest indoor arena in Europe, opened in 1995 and is a popular concert and sporting venue.

Manchester Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said police were treating the blast as a terrorist incident and were working with counter-terrorism police and intelligence agencies but gave no further details on their investigation.

"Many of you won't have ever been to Manchester", he continued.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but US officials drew parallels to the coordinated attacks in November 2015 by Islamist militants on the Bataclan concert hall and other sites in Paris, which claimed about 130 lives.

"We continue to do all we can to support them".

"The priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network".

"An attack on one is an attack on all, and NY stands in solidarity with the British people and our friends around the world against the forces of hate and terror", he said.

Not only Wozniacki, but also the second seeded player Elena Vesnina , who took a wild card, is out. Anderson had 11 aces and did not drop serve against the 34th-ranked Italian.

"The attacker died detonating the device", police said.

Greater Manchester Police has said that the lone attacker, who died in the blast, was carrying an improvised explosive device which he detonated.

Victims described being thrown by the blast that scattered nuts and bolts across the floor.

More than 240 calls were made to the emergency services, with responders including 60 ambulances flooding the area.

The man's Twitter account seemed to be suspended immediately following the attack.

Police advised the public to avoid the area around the Manchester Arena, and the train station near the arena, Victoria Station, was evacuated and all trains canceled.

Police have appealed for concert-goers and witnesses to provide police with footage from the scene if they believe it can assist the probe.

"This is now being treated as a terrorist incident until police know otherwise", said the police in a statement. Ariana Grande was great and then she came on for an encore, blew a kiss to the audience and then walked off and then the bang happened.

Initially, authorities who rushed to the scene believed that the incident was caused by a suicide bomber , per a report from CNN . Joseph Carozza, a representative from Grande's US record label, said the singer is OK and they are investigating what happened.

Downing Street said a meeting of the Government's emergency Cobra committee is expected to take place on Tuesday morning chaired by Theresa May.

Trudeau also issued a tweet imploring people to keep the incident's victims in their thoughts. "Japan stands in solidarity with the people of the U.K".

"I felt a bit of pain in my foot and my leg". "From the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words".

"I was about three metres from the actual explosion. I am surprised I got away so lightly".

Mr Walker said the explosion was by the door in the foyer, next to the merchandise, and that glass and metal nuts were left on the floor.

Grande said she had been left "broken" by the events.

Robinson took dozens of teenage girls to the nearby Holiday Inn Express hotel and tweeted out her phone number to anxious parents, telling them to meet her there.

"As I turned around, boom, one loud noise", she told Sky News. Everyone was running and crying.

Nest is reportedly prepping a "4K" resolution indoor security camera
So, if the camera sees something moving, it can crop down to 1080p in order to show you a zoomed-in view that's still in full HD. The design (which we can't show you, sorry) is similar to the current Nest Outdoor camera - it looks a bit like a shower head.
