"Monday's (5/22) attack outside an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena (Manchester, UK) killed at least 22 people, including children, and was carried out by a lone suspect carrying a bomb, Manchester Police said.
"'The attacker, I can confirm, died at the arena. We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device, which he detonated, causing this atrocity,' said Chief Constable Ian Hopkins." - CNN, Euan McKirdy, Zayn Nabbi, Samantha Beech, Darran Simon.
It is nearly unbelievable that any person could murder innocent children, women, men, in such a way...
Today is my son's 16th birthday, he has been places where all those around him have been innocent, too... Happy birthday Conor.
