JUST IN: New Information on Suicide Bombing in England

By

As Americans are waking up this morning they are getting the terrible news of a suicide bomb attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

The latest death toll stands at 22, with dozens more injured, many of them seriously.

Officials were initially wary of calling it terrorism, and even suggested the tragedy could have been the result of an “accident.”

But authorities are now admitting this was an act of terror, a suicide bomber, to be exact.

CNBC reports:

U.K. authorities suspect the incident was conducted by a suicide bomber, according to multiple U.S. officials briefed on the investigation.

Preliminary reports indicated that a single explosion took place outside the arena on the southwest side opposite the Manchester Victoria transit station, which is part of the greater arena complex, the U.S. officials said.

The explosion occurred as the concert ended, catching people as they exited.

What’s more, hospital officials in Manchester are also reporting injuries consistent with a nail bomb.


Now, government officials are going to wait as long as they can to admit this, but all signs point to an act of Islamic terrorism.
