Ariana Grande suspends world tour, cancels some European stops

And, authorities are now examining a potential connection between Abedi and Mohamed Abrini, believed to be one of the key plotters behind the 2015 Bataclan concert hall attack in Paris, as well as a dual suicide bombing that rocked a train station and the main worldwide airport in Brussels in March of that year. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility, though British authorities have not determined whether he was truly associated with them or received any assistance while building his bomb or plotting his crime.

Manchester-born Abedi, a university dropout, grew up in a Libyan family in the northwestern English city.

Her current "The Dangerous Woman Tour" is in support of her third studio album, Dangerous Woman, which released a year ago on 20 May.

Greater Manchester Police said the man was taken into custody after a property search at an address in the Moss Side area of Manchester.

"Due to the tragic events in Manchester, the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost", the tour's promoters confirmed in a statement.

Soldiers and bomb disposal experts rushed to a street in the south of the city after a call to police, but it turned out to be a false alarm.

Abedi was believed to have traveled to Syria and had "proven" links with ISIS, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said Wednesday on BFM television, adding that British and French intelligence have information that Abedi had been to Syria.

The UK terror threat level remains "critical", meaning another attack could be imminent and additional Army and armed police officers are patrolling major sites, including the transport network, across the UK.

Twelve children under the age of 16 were taken to the hospital by ambulance following Monday night's attack, which saw 22 people in total killed and dozens more injured.

May was to hold a meeting of Britain's emergency committee on Thursday before heading to Brussels. However, she will curtail her trip, returning home late Friday, missing the Saturday talks in Sicily.

Meanwhile, national level campaigning for the June 8 general election is set to resume today after local level campaigns resumed yesterday following suspension in the wake of the attack. One of those killed was an eight-year-old girl.
