It will probably shock and appall you to discover that all 22 suspects arrested in connection with last month’s Manchester terror attack have been released without charges.
In the three weeks following the suicide bomb attack at an Ariana Grande concert, UK police arrested 22 people thought to be connected with bomber Salman Abedi, including his older brother. Though they still don’t know whether Abedi acted as part of a wider network, police have released all of their suspects back into the public. A concert attendee has spoken out about a possible female accomplice who behaves suspiciously during the performance before disappearing prior to the attack.
The investigation will continue, according to Police counter-terror official Russ Jackson, as police “work to understand the full extent of the involvement of anyone else.”
As reported in the Daily Caller:
Salman Abedi, a British national of Libyan descent, detonated a suicide bomb outside an Ariana Grande concert as people were leaving Manchester Arena on May 22, killing 22 people and injuring 59 more.
British authorities believe he assembled the bomb himself, but remain unclear on if he had accomplices who helped him obtain or hide materials for the bomb.
Law enforcement released images of Abedi with a blue suitcase he used to transport bomb materials and asked the public for information about the white Nissan Micra used by Abedi the night of the attack.
Police also want to interview Abedi’s younger brother Hashem, but he is being held by a militia group in Libya.
