He said that his son visited Libya a month and a half ago and was preparing to get ready to go to Saudi Arabia. Several details, including the identity of the attacker, appeared on US media outlets before British security forces were ready to release the information.

Concert venues and stadiums in Pennsylvania are not planning to increase security precautions after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Britain's Manchester Arena.

Ahmed bin Salem, a spokesman for the Deterrence Force, which supports Libya's UN-backed unity government, said Hashem Abedi was aware of his brother's attack plan and both were members of IS.

In regards to the two Ariana Grande shows slated in London, officials say no decision has been reached yet on whether to postpone those shows.

French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb told television journalists that Abedi was believed to have recently been in Syria and had "proven" links to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

With this "critical" level, soldiers will protect some key sites such as Buckingham Palace, Downing Street, embassies and parliament. They will replace armed police as Operation Temperer takes effect Wednesday.

Ms Rudd spoke out as the government raised the terrorism threat level to "critical" - the highest possible rating - on Tuesday amid fears another attack was imminent.

"I was really shocked when I saw the news, I still don't believe it", he said. Ramadan Abedi said one of his other sons - he has four and two daughters, according to his official identification documents - had been arrested and is being questioned by police.

Police have swooped in on multiple addresses in the northwestern city since Tuesday and those arrested include bomber Salman Abedi's brother Ismail.

Abedi also had ties to al-Qaeda, according to the official, and received terrorist training overseas.

"There was a policeman, armed policeman, shouting at my neighbor. and I realized there is something wrong here", he said.

Officials are probing how often Abedi had traveled to Libya, which has seen an eruption of armed Islamist groups since dictator Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown and killed in 2011. He did not provide details, and said it is unclear whether Abedi was part of a larger network of attackers.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she would discuss the leaks with President Donald Trump at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

It was not immediately clear if the three arrests included the 23-year-old man reportedly arrested in connection to the case last night.

"I have a few like holes in my legs and stuff and I have a bit of a cut, and my arm and just a bit here, but compared to other people I'm quite lucky really", she said.

They continue to investigate the suicide bomber, Salman Abedi, and his suspected links to a wider extremist "network".

Citing unnamed federal security sources, Focus reported that Salman Abedi twice flew from a German airport in recent years and wasn't on any global watch list. The National Health Service said 75 people had been hospitalized.
