United Kingdom 'irritated' by USA leaks in attack

26 Mai, 2017, 13:48 | Author: Marc Bacque

British authorities identified Salman Abedi, 22, as the suicide bomber in the attack at the Ariana Grande concert that killed 22 people and injured dozens more.

Manchester police have stopped sharing investigative information with the USA until they are guaranteed an end to media leaks, a British official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday morning that when she meets later in the day with President Trump in Brussels, she would make it clear "that intelligence shared must remain secure". Rawlinson says "she was academically a very gifted student, very hard-working". It is our deepest defence and security partnership that we have.

Akram Ramadan, a member of the Libyan community in Manchester who attends the city's Didsbury Mosque, said Abedi was banned from the mosque after he allegedly interrupted an imam's anti-Islamic State sermon.

"It is absolutely understandable the distress and upset that this caused to these families that are already suffering", he said.

"The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling", he said. Britain has raised its official terror threat to "critical" - meaning it is likely an attack is imminent - and is trying to uncover a suspected extremist network before it strikes again.

Government officials said almost 1,000 soldiers were deployed to Buckingham Palace, Parliament and other high-profile sites across the country.

Roman says travelers will have to assess their tolerance for risk and remain vigilant, especially when in large crowds. A video posted on Twitter showed fans, many of them young, running from the venue.

Ariana's team have confirmed that the star has suspended her tour in the wake of the Manchester terror attack.

She told Evie Mills (14) and her parents: "It's awful".

Frankie Grande, Ariana's performer brother, is also scheduled to appear in London this week - at Bush Hall, a concert hall in West London, on Saturday. Considering her actions since the bombing, it doesn't seem to be out of character for her.

British police have arrested two more men in connection with the Manchester attack, taking the number of people in custody to eight, Greater Manchester police said.

In addition to those killed, 116 people received medical treatment at Manchester hospitals for wounds from the blast. The National Health Service says 75 people have been admitted to eight hospitals, "including 23 patients now receiving critical care".

The need to plug leaks on our end long predate the Manchester bombing, but perhaps the stark nature of this incident will finally provide enough impetus for U.S. agencies to clean up their acts.

Among respondents who expressed some level of concern about travel safety, 75 per cent pointed to Europe, followed by 73 per cent who mentioned Africa and the Middle East. Terrorism was their biggest worry, with 55 per cent ranking it either first or second on a list of greatest threats while travelling this year.

It comes at a time when European security officials have expressed concern about sharing intelligence with the U.S. after President Donald Trump discussed highly classified intelligence about the Islamic State group with senior Russian officials visiting the White House. The bomber himself died in the attack.

Investigators are trying to find whether Abedi knew several Manchester-based jihadis, including Libyan man Abdalraouf Abdallah, who was jailed in the United Kingdom for terror offenses, and Raphael Hostey, an IS recruiter killed in Syria.

A photo of Abedi was also released.

ISIS claimed Tuesday one of its "soldiers" carried out the attack, but intelligence officials haven't be able to connect Abedi with the group.

South Manchester, and in particular Moss Side, was once plagued by drugs and gun crime during Manchester's gangland years, but it has seen huge improvement in recent years thanks to tireless work from campaigners in the community.

Authorities are investigating if Salman Abedi was radicalized during the trips. Ramadan Abedi claims his sons are innocent.

"Abedi stood up and shouted at the imam, "'You are talking bollocks.' And he gave a good stare, a threatening stare into the imam's eyes".
