Hasem Abedi, 20, is the younger brother of Salman Abedi, the Manchester Arena bomber. Hasem was arrested in Libya by Tripoli’s anti-terrorism units, because it has been suspected for some time that the 20-year-old had ties to ISIS.
Salman Abedi, 22, detonated a bomb last week in the foyer of Manchester Arena, at the end of an Ariana Grande concert. The concert was mostly attended by young women. Total, 22 people were killed, and over 119 wounded. The youngest of Abedi’s victims was just 8-years-old.
Salman Abedi’s body was recovered at the scene.
This comes at a time when the father spoke to the media, saying that he was shocked by this news. The father also stated that they did “not believe in killing innocents”.
