So far, four people have been arrested and taken into custody, each of which thought to have some sort of connection to the bombing. In addition, the Prime Minister has announced a critical threat level to the highest degree in case of another attack.
British troops and soldiers are setting up on the streets and at tourist locations.

We are beginning to see British troops on the street and in front of key installations like Buckingham Palace.”
The troops are also setting up near events like football games.

“A source said British investigators were hunting for anyone who may have helped build the suicide bomb. “I think it’s very clear that this is a network that we are investigating,” police chief Ian Hopkins said outside Manchester police headquarters.”

There’s extensive investigations going on and activity taking place across Greater Manchester as we speak.” Abedi, who was born in Manchester in 1994 to Libyan parents, blew himself up on Monday night at the Manchester Arena indoor venue at the end of a concert by U.S. pop singer Ariana Grande attended by thousands of children and teenagers.”
