The criminal behind the terrible bomb attack at the Manchester Arena that killed 22 and injured more than 50 persons has been identified.
The police believe that the suicide bomber that denoted his explosive device was a 22-year-old British man of Libyan descent, Salman Abedi.
The Islamic State terrorist group took responsibility for the attack reported ChristianHeadlines.com and MSN.com also reported that Abedi had ties to al Qaeda, but may have been linked to the Islamic State as well.
Abedi had allegedly gotten terrorist training abroad and was known as a conceivable danger and his own family had reported him to British authorities sometime in the past.
It was also noted that Abedi was not likely acting alone as the bomb he detonated was of a high level.
So far, five persons have been apprehended in the UK up until this point.
The main arrest occurred on Tuesday in Chorlton, Manchester where a 23-year-old man was held, accepted to be Abedi’s older sibling, Ismail. He stays in custody.
Another three men were captured in south Manchester on Wednesday morning. A fifth suspect, accepted to carrying a package, was captured in Wigan on Wednesday evening.
