Officials Say Manchester Terrorist Met With ISIS Members In Libya

15 June, 2017, 01:34 | Author: Essie Rivera

The duo, who were among those arrested by police in the aftermath of the bombing and since been released without charge, say they did not know about their cousins extremist views and that he may have been radicalised overseas.

Counter-terrorism police have said they believe Salman Abedi acted largely alone as he assembled the nail bomb, having initially feared the killer was helped by a network of accomplices.

The auto, a white Nissan Micra, was found in an area of the Rusholme neighbourhood, which authorities cordoned off and evacuated.

The attacker, 22-year-old Salman Abedi, reportedly met with members of the Katibat al-Battar al-Libi, during trips to Tripoli and Sabratha, Libya.

This latest arrest means an 11th suspect is now in custody, joining 10 other men aged between 18 and 44.
