Ariana Grande reacts to fatal Manchester explosion: 'Broken'

Map of blast scene

The bombing took place at the end of the concert, when the audience was streaming toward the exits of Manchester Arena, one of the largest indoor concert venues in the world.

Children and teenagers were among the dead because of the very young demographic of the pop star's fans.

Despite her rep confirming that the singer is fine, fake photo claiming that Ariana Grande has been injured in the attack has gone viral on social media. They're losers. And we'll have more of them.

Independent councillor Mr Borthwick added: "On behalf of the people of the City of Dundee, I have written to the Mayor of Greater Manchester to express our condolences to the families of those who were tragically killed and our sympathies to those who were injured in yesterday evening's awful act of terrorism".

"This is a fast-moving investigation..."

"All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks on innocent people but this attacks stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenceless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives ..."

"We are deeply shocked by last night's bad events at the Manchester Arena", said Manchester United, who are in Stockholm ahead of Wednesday's Europa League final against Ajax.

The 14-year-old remains unaccounted for after last night's concert. "It shocks me every time we hear this sort of news that attacks like this can happen-but especially when there will be so many children at this concert tonight".

Runshaw College, where Callander was a student, confirmed the news and on social media in a statement. Shortly after the incident, police announced they were investigating it as a "possible terrorist incident", according to the BBC and other sources.

Police this morning confirmed that the suicide bomber, who was known to authorities, died inside the arena.

"Our way of life will always prevail", she asserted.

Queen Elizabeth II condemned the attack as an act of "barbarity".

Anxious family and friends have been appealing for help to find loved ones who have not been in touch since the Manchester Arena bombing.

Manchester, a heavily industrialised city, some 260 km from London, is home to a significant number of people from South Asia. Politicians cutting across party lines have suspended their campaign in a mark of respect to the deceased. President Trump, out of the country for his first trip overseas as president, bemoaned the loss of life at the hands of "evil losers in life".

Two hotels near the Manchester Arena venue took in stranded children while residents opened their doors to stranded concert-goers after trains were cancelled.

Police responded to the Manchester Arena around 10:35 p.m. Monday night for reports of explosions.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with you all", the band said in a statement.

Speaking outside her offices in London, she says "Although it is not the first time Manchester has suffered in this way, it is the worst attack the city has experienced, and the worst ever to hit the north of England".

Police have said they believe the attack was carried out by "one man", who died at the scene after he detonated an "improvised explosive device".

Grande, who was not injured in the blast, tweeted: "broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words". In another tweet, Katz said that ISIS released instructions on how to manufacture a bomb in November. "Great football teams: Man City, Man United".
