This is now the deadliest terror attack on British soil since London’s 2005 bombing. It looks like a man carrying explosives died in the attack, while another 23-year old man was arrested in connection with the bombing.
British Prime Minister Theresa May made an official statement confirming everyone’s fear that this was indeed a terrorist attack.
“It is now beyond doubt that the people of Manchester and of this country have fallen victim to a callous terrorist attack. An attack that targeted some of the youngest people in our society with cold calculation,” she said.
“We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not a scene to cherish but as an opportunity for carnage.”
Ariana Grande has since taken to Twitter to express how sorry she is and that she’s “broken.”
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.
