The explosion took place at a music concert

Manchester (England): At least 22 people were killed and about 59 others were injured in what British Prime Minister Theresa May called “an appalling attack” after an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night at Manchester Arena in England, authorities said.

Greater Manchester Police said the incident was being treated as terrorism. Police said the explosion took place outside the Arena, which is near the Manchester Victoria transit station, as the concert ended at about 10.35 pm (local time), catching people as they exited.

Ian Hopkins, Chief Constable of the Greater Manchester Police, said investigators were coordinating with British intelligence. “This is clearly a very concerning time for everyone,” he said at a brief news conference early this morning. At a later press conference today, Hopkins said that Police believe the attack was carried out by one man who had an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) and who also died in the bombing. He added that children were among those killed in the blast.

Police and other emergency services were seen near the Manchester Arena after reports of an explosion. Police have confirmed they are responding to an incident during an Ariana Grande concert at the venue.
