Manchester Arena: police confirm fatalities after incident at Ariana Grande concert – live

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/liv ... on-england



Quote:
Erin McDougle, 20, from Newcastle said: “There was a loud bang at the end of the concert. The lights were already on so we knew it wasn’t part of the show. At first we thought it was a bomb. There was a lot of smoke. People started running out. When we got outside the arena there were dozens of police vans and quite a few ambulances.

A group of young men from Sheffield said they had seen at least five people covered in blood and others being carried out by bouncers. “Ariane Grande had just gone behind the curtain and the lights came up when there was this massive bang and a big cloud of smoke. I saw five people with blood all down them,” said one.

Sophie Tedd, 25, from Darlington, said the noise and smoke seemed to come from the tiered seating stage right. “We were sitting on that side then suddenly there was this big bang in the block next to us. Everyone started screaming and we nearly got trampled on. There was a burning smell.”

Apparently... the TEST and authority on whether something is a bomb/terrorism is SHEP SMITH.

Handy to know.. whenever there is a "suspicious package" somewhere... send in Shep to poke it with a stick!!

Looking like a nail bomb is the earliest guess. Ban immigration now. Throw the Muslims back to their own countries.

Drive them off the face of the earth.

SMH After every terrorist attack we should flatten a Muslim majority country that has proclaimed their hatred for us. Start with Iran and tell the rest of the ME we will make you a pile of rubble. Kill off these savages or die with them.

Reports of a SECOND DEVICE... found and due to be blown up with controlled explosion.

ETA
The controlled explosion carried out by Greater Manchester police on a suspicious device in Cathedral gardens, just minutes from the arena. Police have since confirmed that the item was abandoned clothing and now not thought to be suspicious.

I'm not sure I would be keen to go to Paris or London.... Today....you simply can not avoid places like Train stations, airports.

I did not give it a thought when I went 3 years ago.. even though there had been past incidents in London... and I was staying in Praed Street (lots of Muslims). I guess it's human to not be so fearful.

I am not saying "Bad Taste" deserves the ultimate punishment... but...

The bomber may have been a music critic?

Top 5 songs by Ariana Grande

Just reading that the wretch who is Ariana said "I hate America, I hate Americans."

Fine by me, stay in London move to the Middle East just stay out of the country you hate.

Officials have said they KNOW who the loser is but they are not releasing his name.

I appreciate the need to swoop on his associates and the need to avoid alerting them but…. The mere fact that the authorities have announced publicly that they have identified the perp will cause his associates to scatter already. IMO there is no (good) reason to with hold his name
