19 people have been confirmed dead in an explosion that blasted in Manchester’s Ariana Grande concert. The bomb exploded minutes after the concert ended, and police are treating the situation as a terrorist attack. 50 concert-goers are already injured.
Manchester Arena says the attack took place outside the venue just as the concert was about to end. Witnesses say two blasts were heard. Residents in nearby areas also felt the blast.
While there is no confirmation that the explosion was indeed terrorist-related, police are treating the situation as a terrorist attack.
More than 20000, mainly young people, were attending the concert. The death toll may grow.
