Thousands of people have turned out for a vigil in Manchester, with the crowd holding a minute of silence to honour the victims of the concert attack.

Lord Mayor Eddy Newman and the city's police chief were among the speakers in front of city hall in Albert Square.

Several people in the crowd held up signs with "I Love MCR," an abbreviation for Manchester.

A banner with a website for a Muslim group said "Love for all, Hatred for None."

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for Monday night's blast at the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena that killed 22 people and wounded 59 others.

Chase Little, 31, of Beaumont, and Colton Leblanc, 25, of Winnie, pleaded no contest to felony assault and committing a hate crime against Maan Singh Khalsa during the Sept. 25 attack.

The arrangement was part of a plea deal, according to Simon O’Connell of the Contra Costa County district attorney’s office.

O’Connell said the beating wasn’t just an attack. Little and Leblanc, the prosecutor said, went out of their way to cut Khalsa’s hair, which he maintained unshorn as part of his Sikh faith, “making this so clearly a hate crime.”

“We want to think that crimes like this only occur elsewhere and ‘don’t happen in our community.’

They do,” O’Connell said. “Reducing the frequency of hate crimes starts with recognizing that we need to do a better job of embracing our differences.” latimes.com
This is the dramatic moment anti-terror police swooped to arrest a man over last night's suicide bomb atrocity at Manchester Arena. 

Pictures show non-uniform officers wearing masks to conceal their faces arresting a 23-year-old man outside a Morrisons supermarket in Chorlton-Cum-Hardy, south Manchester this morning.

The arrest came hours after a suicide bomber slaughtered 22 and injured 119 after an Ariana Grande concert and as police tried to determine whether the attacker had accomplices as part of a wider terror cell.

Separate pictures later emerged showing a large presence of police, including armed officers outside an address just a mile from the arrest.

ISIS has since claimed responsibility and threatened further attacks, saying 'one of the caliphate's soldiers placed bombs within a gathering of the Crusaders'.  

There are unconfirmed reports this afternoon that the terrorist was British and that he may have been known to police before the massacre. dailymail.co.uk
Manchester police confirmed 19 are dead and around 50 injured.

British Transportation Police report, "Officers are at Manchester Arena following reports of an explosion within the foyer area of the stadium at 10.30pm this evening." 

NBC reports that officials suspect a suicide bomber is to blame for the incident. 

Emergency services have rushed to the U.K.'s Manchester Arena where Ariana Grande had been performing Monday (May 22) after concertgoers claim two explosions were heard. 

Billboard has confirmed Grande is "okay" with the singer's rep and that her team is further investigating what happened. 

So far no official report has been issued, but people at the concert and in the surrounding area are posting on social media that there were two bangs and people running out of the 21,000-person capacity arena.  billboard.com
Attempting to sell secret IBM source codes to undercover FBI agents posing as tech investors, a former developer pled guilty to economic espionage.

A Chinese national and computer science graduate from the University of Delaware, Xu Jiaqiang stole the secrets during a 2010-2014 stint at IBM "to benefit the National Health and Family Planning Commission of the People’s Republic of China." 

The U.S. Justice Department does not identify IBM in its statement, instead referring to "the Victim Company." However, other media outlets and Xu's former LinkedIn page prove his employment at the company.

An anonymous tip-off has led to a huge haul of stolen cars, one of the largest seizures recorded in recent Victorian history.

Police uncovered 31 stolen cars on an overgrown property in Melbourne's outer south-east on Thursday.

The cars some stolen a decade ago were found dotted around a four-hectare property in Pearcedale.

Casey CIU Detective Sergeant Garry Kear​ said that when police executed a warrant, they found dozens of cars strewn among the scrub, alongside several tow-trucks which police believe were used to transport the vehicles.

Little attempt had been made to hide the stolen cars, and number plates and Vehicle Identification Numbers largely remained on the cars. theage.com.au
The FBI is helping to investigate the fatal stabbing on the University of Maryland campus to determine whether it was a hate crime.

University of Maryland student Sean Christopher Urbanski, 22, has been charged with first- and second-degree murder as well as first-degree assault in the death of Richard Collins III. 

University of Maryland Police Chief David Mitchell said at a press conference Sunday that he sought the FBI's help after finding that Urbanski is a member of a Facebook group called "Alt Reich: Nation," where members post racially charged material.

Urbanski is being held without bond. nbcwashington.com
New legislation to criminalise the non-consensual distribution of intimate images, known as "revenge porn", has been introduced by the New South Wales Attorney-General.

The new laws would cover photos and videos of a person's private parts or a person engaging in a private act like undressing, showering or having sex.

Those who share or threaten to share explicit images without consent would face tough new penalties if the Crimes Amendment (Intimate Images) Bill passes State Parliament this week.

"The maximum jail sentence will be three years and a fine of $11,000," Attorney-General Mark Speakman said.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said she appreciated how incidents of revenge porn made victims' lives very difficult. abc.net.au
