Jeremy Corbyn has delivered a touching video tribute to the people of Manchester following last night’s deadly terror attack.

The Labour leader visited the city to attend a vigil in memory of the victims and in support of their families.

In the message, released this evening, he paid tribute to emergency service workers who responded to the incident in the hours following the explosion.

And he said the British people must now stand together to prevent terrorism dividing communities.

“Murderous hatred visited Manchester Arena last night,” he said. “It will go no further.” mirror.co.uk
British intelligence services are probing the Manchester Arena suicide bombing suspect's links to terror groups such as al-Qaeda and Isis as a Manchester imam says he showed "the face of hate", The Telegraph reports.

The Sun and Guardian newspapers on Wednesday (NZT) published what they said were photos of suspect Salman Abedi as investigators continued to comb his Manchester home for clues.

Police set off a controlled explosion to enter the house in Elsmore Road in Fallowfield, further fraying the nerves of on-edge residents.

The electoral roll listed Abedi, 22, as living at the address. A neighbour caught the controlled explosion on camera.

An investigator in protective forensic gear was photographed carrying a booklet titled "KNOW YOUR CHEMICALS!" out of the house.

Abedi was born in Manchester in 1994 to parents of Libyan birth, US security officials said, citing British intelligence officials. 9news.com.au
After the horrific bombing in Manchester Monday night, Katie Hopkins, a columnist for Daily Mail Online, tweeted a call for men of the West to stand up for their families and demand action from the powers that be to combat terrorists.

Hopkins named no group, named no individual, but her tweet was immediately tagged by a leftist insistent that Hopkins was inciting racial hatred.

Hopkins also issued a tweet aimed at Good Morning Britain host Phillip Schofield in which she called for a “final solution” to the problem of terrorism, eliciting condemnation from those who believed she was referencing the “Final Solution” the Nazis promulgated to murder millions of Jews in the Holocaust.

On March 26, Hopkins had delivered an impassioned monologue on the air in which she responded to Prime Minister Theresa May’s speech after the deadly Westminster attack in which May said,

“We know the threat from Islamist terrorism is very real. But while the public should remain utterly vigilant, they should not – and will not – be cowed by this threat.” dailywire.com
The late Monday explosion killed at least 22 people, including children, and wounding at least 59 others. As of Tuesday afternoon, no organization claimed responsibility for the Manchester attack, though local police said that they were interrogating a British-born suspect.

The security service known as MI5, Britain’s national domestic intelligence agency, currently rates the threat from international terrorism as “severe” and the probability of an attack as “highly likely.”

Additionally, all three British intelligence agencies, MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, are undergoing expansions in response to the rise in the radicalization of young people through terrorist websites, and as hundreds of battle-trained fighters who joined jihadist groups in Syria and Iraq return home to Britain and the European continent.

While England has been targeted less frequently than its neighbors Belgium, France, and Germany, it has in recent years suffered a number of attacks, and remains a top target, given Britain’s part in the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said that the UK police had thwarted 13 terror plots from far-right and Islamist extremists that were on the scale of those carried out in Paris, in which ISIS supporters targeted bars and clubs in a series of coordinated attacks. vocativ.com
Isis has claimed responsibility for the Manchester Arena attack, hailing the bomber as a "soldier of the caliphate".

The terrorist group released statements in several languages through its central media body praising the atrocity, claiming more than 100 "crusaders" were killed or wounded at the "shameless" concert.

"With Allah's grace and support, a soldier of the Khilafah [caliphate] managed to place explosive devices in the midst of the gatherings of the crusaders in the British city of Manchester," said the English version.

It suggested the atrocity was not a suicide attack, despite police statements saying the perpetrator died at the scene, and did not name him as a "martyr".

Isis said the attack aimed to terrorise "infidels...in response to their transgressions against the lands of the Muslims".

The release of a lengthy official claim so quickly after the bombing suggested the attacker had been in direct contact with Isis militants. independent.co.uk
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.

Teenagers who live in large cities could be at greater risk of having psychotic experiences, according to research examining the impact of urban life on mental health.

Research drew on the Environmental Risk Longitudinal Twin Study, in which 2,063 18-year-olds in England and Wales were asked whether they had had any psychotic experiences since the age of 12, including delusions, hallucinations or concerns that their food had been poisoned.

Just over 30% of the teens reported at least one psychotic experience over the period.

Once factors including family psychiatric history, socioeconomic status and alcohol or cannabis dependence were taken into account, the odds were 43% higher for adolescents living in very urban settings – such as cities like London or Birmingham – than for rural teens.

Further analysis revealed the effect was at least in partly down to low levels of social cohesion, meaning poor relationships between neighbours, and high levels of neighbourhood disorder. theguardian.com
Officials in the United States say British authorities have identified the suspect in the Manchester suicide bombing attack as Salman Abedi.

A U.S. official confirmed the identity Tuesday to The Associated Press. No additional details were immediately available.

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
Parents are desperately searching for their missing children following a suspected suicide attack after the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester that has left at least 22 dead and 59 people injured.

As it was confirmed that children were among the victims of the Manchester Arena attack on Monday evening, parents rushed to hospitals and frantically tried to contact their children.

Parents, friends and family have been posting pictures of their loved ones on social media.

About 21,000 people, many of them children and teenagers, were in the arena when a bomb exploded in the foyer at about 10.30pm.
