Who Is Hashem Abedi? Brother Of Manchester Attacker Arrested For ISIS Ties

UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd today slammed U.S. leaks on the investigation into the deadly Manchester terror attack as "irritating" and said she had made it clear to Washington that it "should not happen again".

Rudd has refused to respond to Collomb's comments that Abedi was believed to have been to Syria, in an interview with Sky News. Armed police also patrolled outside St. Paul's Cathedral in London, another popular tourist spot. In a Facebook post she said she didn't even know that he was homeless.

The Palace of Westminster, which houses the British Parliament in London, also was closed today to all those without passes, and tours and events there were cancelled until further notice.

Runshaw College in Leyland, Lancashire said Callander expressed "enormous sadness" at her death, saying she was on the second year of her health and social care course.

Rudd, Britain's top domestic defense official, told BBC News on Wednesday that Monday's attack was a "devastating occasion".

Britain's official terror threat level was raised on Tuesday to "critical", which is the highest level and means that an attack could be imminent.

"I would expect this to be temporary but we will keep a close eye to see how long we need them for and when it's appropriate we end Operation Temperer and go back to our different levels", Rudd said.

He confirmed that his other son, Ismail, had been arrested Tuesday around Manchester by British authorities in the concert attack probe.

The 45-year-old from Royton, Greater Manchester, was reported missing by relatives. He was a student at the University of Salford in Manchester.

Hopkins said there has been increased police presence on the streets of Manchester, with support from the military. "This is not us", the elder Abedi told the AP by telephone.

France has already grown used to the sight of rifle-toting soldiers in its major cities under a state of emergency imposed after the attacks on the Bataclan concert hall and elsewhere in Paris.

Authorities have discovered no evidence of a link between the attacker and an established terror group, a British counter-terrorism official told CNN.

Twenty-one others, including an 8-year-old girl, were killed in the explosion, and more than 100 wounded.

Rudd also expressed her displeasure at United States officials for leaking information on the perpetrator to the media as the investigation was still unfolding.

In a statement, the head teacher of the Tarleton Community Primary School that she attended in the village of Tarleton, Lancashire, described her as "simply a attractive little girl in every aspect of the word".

Saffie had been at the concert with her mother, Lisa Roussos, and sister, Ashlee Bromwich, who is in her 20s, from Leyland, Lancashire.

Muye Li, a 23-year-old student who lives on the same floor as the raided apartment, said he thought officers were looking for a woman because they "asked me if I had seen the lady next door". No further details have been released.

Authorities carried out further raids Wednesday afternoon in the south Manchester area of Fallowfield, where Abedi lived, as well as in the city center.

The summit is to be joined by US President Donald Trump, who has lambasted North Atlantic Treaty Organisation for not doing more against Islamist extremism and who called those responsible for the Manchester bombing "evil losers". Sixty-four people were injured in the attack.
