Everything we know about Manchester terror attack

British Prime Minister Theresa May has called the Manchester terror bombing, which targeted the venue of an Ariana Grande concert last night, the "worst attack the city has experienced, and the worst ever to hit the north of England."

May said police believe they know the suicide bomber who detonated the explosive inside the concert venue, and they arrested a 23-year-old man, identified as Salman Abedi, early this morning. The Islamic State has also claimed that one of their members carried out the attack, which killed at least 22 people.
