Video: 22 Feared dead At Ariana Grande’s Concert Bombing.
On Monday this week, an American singer and actress Ariana Grande had a concert which was attended by thousands of young music fans in northern England. The much hyped show for Ariana’s ‘’Dangerous woman’’ was held at Manchester Arena in Manchester.
Later, at about 10.30pm when the show was ending, a horror unfolded. Reportedly, a suicide bomber struck an explosion killing At least 22 people, including children and injured 59.
The blast left hundreds of people fleeing in terror, with young people at the concert being separated from their parents in the chaos. It left carnage inside the concert venue, with medics describing treating wounds consistent with shrapnel injury.
One witness said Grande had just finished her final song and said “Thank you, Manchester,” before leaving the stage.
Grande, who was not injured, tweeted hours later: “Broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.”
The attack, which has been recorded as the worst to hit Britain since 2005 has been confirmed by the police to have been a responsibility of one man armed with an improvised explosive device. The man is among the dead.
Chief constable Ian Hopkins said: “We have been treating this as a terrorist incident and we believe that while the attack last night was conducted by one man, the priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network.”
“The attacker, I can confirm, died at the arena. We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device, which he detonated, causing this atrocity.”
Meanwhile, other celebrities are pouring in to send their condolences. Nicki Minaj, a friend of Grande whose vocals are included on her reggae-pop song Side to Side, was among the others, who have reacted to Monday night’s attack.
