19 killed in a Terrorist Attack At Ariana Grande Concert in England
Manchester: At least 19 people killed and about 59 injured in what seem to be a human bomb attack at Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, at around 10:30 pm.
Panic and chaos filled the stadium after the blast as people started running everywhere, many trying to reach Victoria train station. The blast took place almost at the end of the show of Grande, a 23-year-old pop star on an international tour. Nearly 21,000 people are present at the venue when incident happened.
It is an appalling terrorist attack, said Prime Minister Theresa May.
May said that her thoughts were with the victims and their families in what is being “treated by the police as a terrorist attack.”
Not many details of the explosion are known yet, but the target seems to be young children, as the show is mainly attended by youth.
This is the major terrorist attack in England after the 2005 London subway attacks.
The police have released a statement in a tweet:
