Ariana Grande shared a heartfelt letter on Twitter following the shocking terrorist attack at her Manchester concert Monday night.

A Greater Manchester Police statement said: "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".

He also withdrew £250 in cash three days before the attack and transferred £2,500 to his brother Hashim.

The 20-year-old was arrested by Libyan counter-terrorism forces on Tuesday, a day after his brother, Salman Abedi, killed 22 people blowing himself up at Manchester Arena.

For the first time in British history, armed police are also patrolling trains. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

She said: "The public should be clear about what this means - a threat level of severe means an attack is highly likely". -British defense and security partnership is built on trust.

If there was angst over the remaining Ringling animal performers, it was not evident at the midday performance. The next year they announced the circus would retire its elephants.

Johnson played down any lasting rift between British and American intelligence authorities, praising the "vital importance" of work between US and British authorities, including intelligence sharing.

Mark Rowley, Britain's top counterterrorism police officer, said authorities have dismantled a "large part" of the network around bomber Salman Abedi.

The cooperation later resumed after President Trump assured Prime Minister Theresa May that he would crack down on leaks.

The Telegraph, with the help of investigative website Bellingcat, said it had uncovered Hashim's deactivated Facebook account, on which he had referred to Osama Bin Laden as his "hero" and liked a picture of a plane flying into the World Trade Centre in NY. Hundreds of soldiers have replaced police protecting high-profile sites including Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament in London.

"The country should remain vigilant".

"There will be more searches but the greater clarity and progress has led JTAC, the independent body which assesses threat, to the judgment that an attack is no longer imminent", he said.

In Manchester's St. Ann's Square, where a sea of floral tributes grows by the hour, a crowd sang "Don't Look Back in Anger" - a song by the Manchester band Oasis.

"It's awful. Very wicked, to target that sort of thing", the 91-year-old monarch told 14-year-old Evie Mills and her parents.

She revealed he had phoned her minutes before he killed 22 innocents, to "give farewell" and said "forgive me". The National Health Service says 75 people have been admitted to eight hospitals, "including 23 patients now receiving critical care".

Some bands - including Blondie, Kiss and Take That - have cancelled shows after the blast but representatives for several music acts - including Aerosmith, Celine Dion, Shawn Mendes, Guns N' Roses and Phil Collins - said they will honour their European dates this summer. No one has yet been charged in the bombing.

Abedi, who was known to security services for his radical views, was said to have been in close contact with family members moments before slaughtering concert-goers on Monday. Anecdotal evidence has suggested an increase in hate crimes - not just on European citizens but on those from other communities, including Britain's sizeable Asian communities.

She said that the concert would raise money for the victims of the attack and their families.
