Britain says some of Manchester bomber's network potentially still at large

Police patrol past a pink ribbon tribute in central Manchester England Friday May 26 2017. More than 20 people were killed in an explosion following a Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena late Monday evening

It came hours after the Home Secretary said members of bomber Abedi's terror network could still be at large, despite optimism that further threats had been quashed.

The threat assessment has now been returned to the level it was at prior to the attack in Manchester, northwest England, and means soldiers who have been assisting police would be withdrawn from Britain's streets from midnight on Monday.

On Sunday the Great Manchester Run will go ahead as planned, with defiant runners and spectators due to turn out in large numbers as the city recovers from the atrocity.

Police have said they have arrested a large part of the network behind the bombing, which killed 22 people at a concert hall, and two more men were arrested on Saturday as police continued to close in on the group.

Tillerson said during a trip to London on Friday that the USA "regrets" the leaks, which British officials complained had led to the publication of sensitive information.

"I wish I could say that Georgina is one of the last to die in this way, but unless our government opens its eyes we know we are only another in a long line of parents on a list that continues to grow", the family said in a statement released through Greater Manchester Police.

The police "are still in the middle of a live investigation", said Hopkins, who confirmed that eight people aged between 18 and 38 remained in custody over alleged links to the attack.

"We should be clear about what this means: A threat level of severe means an attack is highly likely, the country should remain vigilant", Prime Minister May said.

Ms Rudd told BBC One's Andrew Marr Show: "The operation is still at full tilt, in a way".

Bomber Salman Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton of Libyan descent, killed 22 people and himself on May 22 at an Ariana Grande concert. Mohammed El-Hudarey, a friend of the landlord, said after Abedi moved out about six weeks ago there was a strong smell of chemicals and debris including metal rods and cut-up fabric.

Two of the victims, Courtney Boyle and stepfather Philip Tron, have been remembered at a moving service at the Angel of the North on Friday. The stadium held a minute of silence for the bombing victims.

Northern rail said Friday that Manchester Victoria Station "suffered structural damage that still needs to be properly assessed and repaired".

Former U.S. President Barack Obama offered his condolences to the victims and support for those wounded in the Manchester bombing during a meeting Saturday with Prince Harry at London's Kensington Palace.

Three people were arrested - and quickly de-arrested - during the afternoon's operation at Quantock Street, Moss Side, leading them to post an outraged sign on their front door. In a statement Friday, she said "I'll be returning to the incredibly fearless city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor of and to raise money for the victims and their families". "We won't let hate win".

Associated Press writer Jill Lawless reported this story from London and AP writer Mstyslav Chernov reported in Manchester.
