Atentado en Manchester

Police have named a Manchester-born son of Libyan immigrants as the suicide bomber responsible for the terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert that left at least 22 people dead.

The man, Salman Abedi, lived less than six kilometres from Manchester Arena, where he detonated a home made explosive shortly after 10.30pm local time as crowds passed through the foyer at the end of the concert.

Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins identified the bomber at a media conference Wednesday morning (AEST), but declined to provide any further details saying a coroner was yet to officially identified him.
