British police stop sharing Manchester attack info with the USA after leaks

The new arrests bring to eight the total number of men being held in the probe of the attack Monday in Manchester that killed 22 people, police said.

However, British authorities were left "furious" by repeated leaks of material shared with their US counterparts, which provides an awkward backdrop for Prime Minister Theresa May's meeting with US President Donald Trump at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels later Thursday.

In the wake of the horrific event at her concert in Manchester, Ariana Grande will reportedly be suspending her tour, at least through the June 5 date.

"I want to thank my fellow musicians and friends for reaching out to be part of our expression of love for Manchester", she said in a letter posted to social media.

The club dedicated their trophy to those killed, while manager Jose Mourinho said they would gladly exchange it if it could bring their lives back.

Messages and floral tributes left for the victims of the attack on Manchester Arena lie around the statue in St Ann's Square in central Manchester, May 24, 2017.

"I'll be returning to the incredibly courageous city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor of and to raise money for the victims and their families", she wrote Friday, adding that she would release details once the plans are confirmed.

The pictures were apparently taken by police investigators and, according to British government ministry sources, leaked by U.S. counterparts they had been shared with.

A spokesman for anti-terror police said investigators relied on trust with security partners around the world, adding: "When that trust is breached it undermines these relationships and undermines our investigations".

USA channel ABC News reported that police had found a kind of bomb-making workshop in Abedi's home and he had apparently stockpiled enough chemicals to make additional bombs.

Hashem had been "under surveillance for a month and a half" and "investigation teams supplied intelligence that he was planning a terrorist attack in the capital Tripoli", the Deterrence Force said on its Facebook page.

The Manchester bombing has raised concern across Europe. "This is British intelligence at the end of the day, people shouldn't be finding out about this". "There's extensive investigations going on and activity taking place across Greater Manchester as we speak". A woman detained on Wednesday was released without charges.

British police on Friday arrested a man in the Manchester suburb of Moss Side in connection to the attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester Arena, news agency Reuters reported.

Elders at the south Manchester mosque believed to have been frequented by Abedi insisted that his actions were wholly alien to their preaching, and pointed the finger at online radicalisation.

Earlier, interior minister Amber Rudd said the bomber had recently returned from Libya.

"In any case, the links with Daesh are proven", he said, using a term for IS.

After the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, May is heading to the G7 gathering in Italy on Friday. Campaigning will resume on Friday.

The bombing also left 64 people wounded, of whom 20 were receiving critical care for highly traumatic injuries to major organs and to limbs, a health official said. Twelve of the injured are aged under 16. The victims ranged from an eight-year-old schoolgirl to parents who had come to pick up their children.
