A spokesman for the anti-terror force in Libya says the 22-year-old bomber in the Manchester attack telephoned his mother hours before the attack and said, "Forgive me".

Police investigating the Manchester Arena bomb attack have temporarily stopped sharing information with the United States after leaks to the media, the BBC understands.

United States media were the first to report 22-year-old British national Salman Abedi was behind the Manchester bomber. "So after that, he told us, "Having internet, I see the attack in Manchester and I knew that's my brother", the spokesperson told BBC2's Newsnight.

"And as I've said, it continues at a pace".

Meanwhile, with the United Kingdom general election campaign due to resume today, Jeremy Corbyn has signalled his intention to bring the issue of terrorism into the political arena. "This is not us", he told The Associated Press.

Salman Abedi lived for years with family in a modest red-brick house in the Fallowfield section of Manchester, a middle- to working-class neighborhood.

The youngest so far known to have died is eight-year-old Saffie Roussos, while an off-duty Cheshire police officer, who has not yet been named, was also among the dead.
