Terrorist Attack on Ariana Grande in Manchester UK

Reports are it was a device similar to the Boston bombings with 19 killed and as many as 50 injured.

The explosion happened near an entrance to the 21,000-seat arena just minutes after Grande’s concert ended with the song “Dangerous Woman” and the singer left the stage, witnesses said.

British counter-terrorism investigators think the possible terrorist attack may have been the work of a suicide bomber who entered a crowded area outside the performance space where attendees were streaming out of the concert, according to U.S. law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation.


Update: Not for sure if this video below the fold is a hoax or not, so take with a grain of salt. The bomber himself we know is dead.

I'm now getting reports that a second device was present, it's unclear if it failed but I see reports of a controlled demolition.


Update: 05/23/17. And now we begin finding our who was murdered.


The death toll is now 22.

ISIS claims attack, we'll see I guess ISIS claims started immediately at the attack and I've even seen some before claims I can't verify. This IMO indicates an internet inspired "cell" not a central operation. The bombs created most likely from Inspire magazine or a similar offshoot.

Normally a connected cell takes about 24 hours to claim, and regardless if its an actual ISIS operation they would claim it anyway. We'll just have to wait and see what shakes out and who he was in contact with.

One man has been arrested in connection so we'll learn more.

A horrific act of barbarism.

Chris Parker, 33, said: 'I heard a bang and within a split second I saw a white flash, then smoke and then I heard screaming. There was people lying on the floor everywhere.

'I saw a little girl ... she had no legs. I wrapped her in one of the merchandise T-shirts and I said 'where is your mum and daddy?' She said 'my dad is at work, my mum is up there'.'

He said he thought the child's mother had died from her injuries.

Mr Parker added: 'She passed away in my arms. She was in her 60s and said she had been with her family.

I haven't stopped crying. There were nuts and bolts all over the floor. People had holes in their back.'

I've een a lot of chatter on the ISIS side about "our children die". Well civilians die in war, it's unavoidable when forces fight that civilians die.

But his is a direct attack on women and children with no military in sight.. It is the worst of Shirk.

Update: The terrorist has been identified and shockingly was known to authorities.
