Manchester Bombing Investigation Leads to Additional Arrests

Police and security services are also upset that the name of bomber Salman Abedi was leaked by US officials and published while police in Britain were withholding the name for what they said were reasons of operational security. "When that trust is breached it undermines these relationships, and undermines our investigations".

The bomber's name, Salman Abedi, was also leaked to the United States media against the wishes of the British authorities.

"As it stands, six men and one woman have been arrested in conjunction with the investigation and remain in custody for questioning", a British police statement said. All the previous arrests were made in and around Manchester where the suicide bombing took place on Monday night.

This undated photo obtained on May 25, 2017 from Facebook shows Manchester-born Salman Abedi, suspect of the recent Manchester terrorist attack.

Police issued a strongly worded statement late on Wednesday after the New York Times published photographs of the crime scene where a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a concert.

British officers said the leaks had caused "distress and upset" to the victims' families.

In his statement, Trump - who was already struggling domestically to stem a tide of damaging leaks from law enforcement agencies - said the information coming out in the U.S. media was "deeply troubling".

Police have arrested 11 people, but two of those were released without charge, police said. She asks that people's response to violence be to "to love more, to sing louder and to live more kindly and generously than we did before".
