British Prime Minister, Theresa May, raised the national threat to ‘critical’, invoking the highest rating in Britain’s alert level. This will allow thousands of British troops to take to the streets, and important locations will be secured by them instead of police officers.
The military will guard public events such as concerts, sports matches, etc. in fears that the attacker of the Manchester Arena bombing might have accomplices, and the actual disaster might be far from over.
The attack in Manchester Arena was carried out by a British citizen, Salman Abedi (22), and killed 22 people, mostly teenagers including one girl only eight years old.
Currently, the highest priority for the police is to know whether Abedi was acting alone or had accomplices, and whether this was one of the attacks planned in a sequence of attacks.
Whoever they are, I wish they are caught as soon as possible. Hurting people? And in fact, hurting children/teenagers is horrific. Not even their God or ‘Allah’, in whose name they commence violence, can welcome such acts of horror.
