    Police have arrested a man on suspicion of planning a terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Costa Rica.

    Detectives launched a manhunt on Saturday after threatening messages were posted in Arabic on a webpage of the concert organisers.

    The suspect, with the last names Caicedo Lopez, a 22-year-old from Colombia, was held in a 6am raid on his flat in Tibas, near the capital San Jose, yesterday.

    I was going to suggest feeding them to some pigs, but I really wouldn't wish that on the pigs.

    “British actor-turned YPG fighter played an Ariana Grande song in Raqqa's main square as a tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack.

    Michael Enright, 52, played the pop star's hit Bang Bang from his mobile phone in Raqqa, the one-time 'capital' of ISIS's self-proclaimed caliphate.

    It comes just days after Raqqa was liberated from Islamic State militants following four months of fighting.”

    “British Police on Wednesday formally requested the extradition of the brother of Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi – setting the stage for a tussle with the Libyan authorities.

    Police were granted an arrest warrant for 20-year-old Hashem Abedi on 22 counts of murder over the terror attack, which also left over 500 people injured or traumatised.

    Home Secretary Amber Rudd agreed to request his extradition from Libya.
    Hashem is also suspected of the attempted murder of those left injured as well as conspiracy to cause an explosion.

    A national one-minute silence will be held on the anniversary of the Manchester Arena atrocity to remember the 22 people who lost their lives.

    The Duke of Cambridge and Prime Minister Theresa May will be among those attending a service of remembrance at Manchester Cathedral, along with families of the victims of the suicide bombing, the injured, the first responders to the scene, civic leaders and other national figures.

    The May 22 invitation-only service, held between 2pm and 3pm, will incorporate the national silence at 2.30pm, which will be marked at UK government buildings.

    I disagree that people are taking more stuff to concerts. 40 years ago I went to concerts where half the people were carrying large coolers filled with beer, picnic baskets, females were carrying handbags, many of them larger than the 35 cm x 40 cm limit in that article, and some people had backpacks with who knows what in them. I have never seen anyone take a suitcase to a concert, then or now.

    Manchester bomber was rescued by the Royal Navy from Libyan warzone and evacuated back to Britain | Daily Mail Online

    The Manchester suicide bomber was rescued by the Navy from war-torn Libya three years before his pop concert atrocity, the Mail reveals today.

    HMS Enterprise plucked Salman Abedi, then 19, from the Libyan coast and took him to Malta for a flight home to Britain in August 2014.

    Last May he set off a bomb in Manchester Arena that killed 22, including seven children.

    Abedi’s younger brother, Hashem, who is in jail in Tripoli facing trial over the attack, was also rescued by HMS Enterprise.

    The pair had been caught up in fighting in Libya and were among more than 100 British citizens taken to safety.

    A Whitehall source said: ‘For this man to have committed such an atrocity on UK soil after we rescued him from Libya was an act of utter betrayal.’

    The revelation will enrage families who lost loved ones in Abedi’s despicable attack. It is also likely to raise fresh fears over possible intelligence failures.

    Ugh! I can't say what I want to say here but, as someone whose family has largely come from different countries to settle in different places, this angers me more than I thought possible. For me, the Ariana attack was more shocking than other events. A lot of these were young kids and the awful thing is, that is why her show was targeted.

    I think the UK needs to be a lot more careful about who they allow into the country. Or back in, should I say.

    I am thinking of the 22 people who died and their families on the second anniversary today. May they Rest In Peace. Those who were injured or affected by this terrible tragedy are also in my prayers.
