Manchester Arena suicide bomber may not have acted alone – police

British police are hoping to speak to the brother of Manchester Arena suicide bomber Salman Abedi as “other people” may have been involved in the attack in May, which killed 23 concert-goers.

The 22-year-old British-Libyan’s brother, Hashem Abedi, was arrested in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, following the attack, together with their father, Ramadan.

Now Greater Manchester Police hope to speak to Hashem as part of their investigation. It is said to be liaising with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and Libyan authorities.

“We don’t have evidence of a large network. We do however suspect others were either aware [of] or complicit in the knowledge of this attack,” said North West Counter Terrorism Unit Detective Chief Superintendent Russ Jackson.

“We do believe that there are other people potentially involved in this. We do however believe further arrests are possible.”

Jackson added that the investigation “is likely to run on for many more months to come.”
