Manchester: The police has issued bomber’s photograph, caught in the camera on Monday. Abedi’s identity was known within two hours of Monday’s attack, police have said.
Prime Minister Theresa May made an announcement that the deployed soldiers will be taken out gradually. They are keeping an eye on 14 locations after she led a meeting of the government’s emergency committee Cobra on Saturday morning, reported BBC.
Security will be tightened for Sunday’s Great Manchester Run, where tens of thousands of runners are expected to participate, including Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham. Other events on Sunday include the League Two play-off final at Wembley and the second day of Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Hull.
Police said the investigation, which is “making good progress” has around 1,000 people working on it and hundreds of more officers involved in the security across Greater Manchester. Fourteen locations are being searched and 11 men remain in custody on suspicion of terror offences.
Officers said they arrested 13 people in Greater Manchester, Warwickshire and Merseyside but a woman and a 16-year-old boy were later released without charge.
