Manchester bomber's younger brother arrested in Libya

Jon Rouse of the agency said 64 people were still hospitalized. "That is why the terrorists will never win and we will prevail", May said.

The bombing also left 59 people wounded, some with life-threatening injuries.

"I have been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again, " she said.

The head of Britain's domestic intelligence agency has canceled his attendance at an global anti-terrorism meeting.

MI5 chief Andrew Parker pulled out of the upcoming meeting in Berlin following the deadly attack on a pop concert in Manchester.

He told the Press Association: "He was always friendly, nothing to suggest (he was violent)".

Britain's defense ministry says the changing of the guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace has been cancelled so that police officers can be re-deployed in the wake of the Manchester concert attack. The traditional ceremony is a major tourist attraction in London.

Abedi, who was reportedly born in the U.K.to Libyan parents, is believed to have recently traveled to Libya, according to multiple media outlets that cite US officials with knowledge of the investigation.

The Palace of Westminster, which houses the British Parliament in London, was closed Wednesday to all those without passes, and tours and events there were cancelled until further notice.

An off-duty police officer was killed in the Manchester suicide attack, it has emerged. They included an eight-year-old girl, several teenage girls and a 28-year-old man.

After every bombing while there is much discussion about what to do, followed by little action, he said.

According to Liberman, the problem in Europe is that many Muslim youth born on the continent are not integrated into society and are turning to extremism instead. The attacker has been identified as 22-year-old Salman Abedi.

Lieberman says Israel and Britain enjoy close intelligence cooperation and Israel offered its assistance following the attack.

Prime Minister Theresa May chaired a meeting of the government's Cobra emergency response committee at her Downing Street office. But police say they're still working to determine whether Abedi may had help in planning the bombing.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd has criticized USA officials for leaking information about Abedi to the press as the investigation is unfolding.

Rudd said Britain's increased official threat level will remain at "critical" as the investigation proceeds and won't be lowered until security services are convinced there is no active plot in place.

British investigators were looking into whether Abedi had travelled to Libya and whether he had been in touch with Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants there or in Syria.

The Times newspaper said Abedi was believed to have returned to Britain from Libya recently. She also said Abedi had been known to security services before the bombing.

The female officer was at the Manchester Arena with her husband and their two children when Salman Abedi detonated a device which killed her along with 21 other people. The government Tuesday night raised the threat to "critical", its highest level, following an emergency Cabinet session.
