Night Of Fun Turns Terror After Deadly Explosion In UK

By  | 

22 music fans have reportedly died and several others injured at the end of a concert by American singer, Ariana Grande, in Manchester, England.

According to reports, the horror attack happened on Monday at the Manchester Arena, leaving 59 injured and 22 dead.

An eyewitness who was at the concert with her daughter told BBC that, Ariana Grande had left, the lights had come up, everyone was just getting out of their seats and walking toward the stairs when all of a sudden this huge sound, which sounded like an explosion, went off.

A lot of children were there without parents. There was no one to calm them down, so everyone was screaming, crying, pushing.

 

BBC reports that in a press conference, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said, Our thoughts are with those 22 victims that we now know have died, the 59 people who have been injured and their loved ones.

We have been treating this as a terrorist incident and we believe that while the attack last night was conducted by one man, the priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network.

The attacker, I can confirm, died at the arena. We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device, which he detonated, causing this atrocity.

Also, the British Prime Minister Theresa May in a statement, said “We are working to establish the full details. All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have been affected.”
