Alleged Manchester bomber phoned mom before attack, said 'forgive me'

Singer Ariana Grande has been thinking about her fans nonstop in the wake of Monday's attack at her show in Manchester, England.

A Whitehall source described the second U.S. leak of images of shrapnel and remains of the suicide bomber's clothing as "on another level", and told BBC it caused "disbelief and astonishment" across the British government.

Allegations that the U.S.is mishandling intelligence from an ally has already been in the news this month - after Trump spoke with senior Russian officials in the Oval Office, and reportedly described highly classified intelligence that was not supposed to be shared. The statement further said, "I am asking the Department of Justice and other agencies to conduct an inquiry into this matter, and if appropriate, the person involved in the leak must be punished".

The Abedi family has close ties to the family of al-Qaida veteran Abu Anas al-Libi, who was snatched by USA special forces off a Tripoli street in 2013 for alleged involvement in the 1998 bombings of two United States embassies in Africa, and died in U.S. custody in 2015.

The leaks included confidential material, including bomb site photographs in the New York Times.

Libyan authorities have arrested Abedi's younger brother, Hashim, and father, Ramadan, in Tripoli.

The British home secretary, Amber Rudd, called them "irritating". It said the database was built around a longstanding U.S.

In a rare public show of dissatisfaction with Britain's closest security ally, Prime Minister Theresa May said she would tell US President Donald Trump at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit later on Thursday that intelligence shared between their two countries had to remain secure.
