At least 19 killed in suspected attack at Ariana Grande concert in British arena

The Manchester attack has caused revulsion across the world because it targeted children and teenagers, who make up the bulk of Grande's fan base. It initially aimed to raise £250,000 but quickly surpassed that target.

Rudd also scolded USA officials for leaking details about the investigation into the Manchester attack before British authorities were ready to go public.

As of just after 5.20 p.m BST, the campaign has attracted donations of £414,906 from 14826 separate backers.

Fadil said he knew Abedi's older brother, Ismail, though, whom he described as "a very normal citizen of this country".

Home searches across Manchester have uncovered important items for the investigation into the concert bombing that left 22 people dead, Manchester's police chief announced Thursday.

Hashim, 18, allegedly claimed his older brother learnt to build bombs from the internet, hoping to "seek victory for the Islamic State", Mr Bin Salem added.

Manchester's mayor, Andy Burnham also expressed his anger over leaking of information from the investigation.

The leaks have opened a diplomatic row as United Kingdom officials are said to be "furious" that their investigation was compromised when photos appearing to show debris from the attack appeared in the "New York Times".

Twenty-two people were killed and dozens more seriously injured when Abedi, 22, detonated a device as fans left Manchester Arena, where USA star Ariana Grande was performing on Monday night.

Two of his brothers have been arrested along with their father.

USA intelligence officials said on Thursday they do not expect British Prime Minister Theresa May's concerns about US officials' leaks on the Manchester suicide bombing to affect the closest intelligence partnership in the world. As of Wednesday morning, police say, they've identified all of the fatalities and contacted all of the families involved.

His two brothers and father have been taken into custody in Britain and Libya as investigators try to uncover what is believed to be a network of terror behind the Monday bombing fronted by Salman.

Moreover, the father of the suicide bomber politically belongs to " Al Umma Party", an affiliate of Sami Al Saadi, who is codenamed " Abu Al Monzir", who is also one of the leaders of the Libyan Al Qaeda, an offshoot of Al Qaeda Organisation.

The leaks that have led to the transatlantic row included suggestions that Abedi's family had warned security officials he was unsafe.

Abedi said Salman planned to travel to Saudi Arabia and then to Libya to spend the Muslim holy month of Ramadan with family.

Focus Magazine in Germany reports today that Abedi was not on any global search list monitoring the movement of suspicious Islamists and slipped easily in and out of the country.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd, who said Abedi had been known to British security officials, complained Wednesday about US officials leaking sensitive information about Abedi to the media, saying that could hinder Britain's security services and police.

Multiple bomb scares occurred across Manchester on Thursday, including in the suburb of Trafford where the army was called to an area near a college.

A German security official told the AP on Thursday the report was accurate, speaking on condition of anonymity because the information hadn't been cleared for public release.

Britons will find armed troops at vital locations after the official threat level was raised to its highest point following a suicide bombing that killed 22.

"They wouldn't let you share bread with them", she said Abedi told her.

She was due to perform in London on Friday (NZ Time).
