Bomb disposal team used to search Wigan house in United Kingdom bomb investigation

Theresa May said she will tell Donald Trump that intelligence shared with the United States "must remain secure" in a sign of the UK authorities' anger at the repeated leaks of sensitive information to the media.

His statement, released by the White House, didn't mention Monday's terror attack in Britain by name, but comes after British Prime Minister Theresa May said she would tell her American counterpart that security intelligence must remain secure between the longstanding allies.

The Manchester suicide bomber who killed 22 people at a concert venue packed with children had recently returned from Libya, a British minister said, and her French counterpart said he had links with Daesh and had probably visited Syria too.

"I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law".

He said the relationship between the United States and Britain was the most cherished of all USA ties.

Burnham told the BBC she would be making her feelings clear to the United States at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, although Downing Street declined to comment to CNN.

This is a breaking news story.

Omar Alfaqhuri, a neighbour who lives just in front of a house that was raided, said he saw "a massive deployment of police forces" during the arrest in the night and a man he named as "Adel" taken away. "And I am not 100 per cent sure that we can say today - we mean Mr. President and myself - that we have a common position, common opinions about Russian Federation", said Tusk, who said unity needed to be found around values like freedom and human rights and dignity.

He did not elaborate, but those arrests around the northwestern English city include Ismail Abedi, the brother of 22-year-old Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi.

Elders at the south Manchester mosque believed to have been frequented by Abedi insisted that his actions were wholly alien to their preaching, and pointed the finger at online radicalisation.

A spokesman said the brother was aware of Abedi's attack plan and both belonged to the Islamic State group, which claimed responsibility for the attack. The paper, without specifying the source, said British authorities provided access to photos of materials found at the scene. She says Abedi believed it was because the friend was Muslim.

"This is the kind of information and the kind of photographs we and others have published countless times after terrorism attacks", said Dean Baquet, executive editor of the Times.

A moment of silence was held Thursday morning at 11 a.m. local time (6 a.m. ET), as the United Kingdom continued to come to terms with its worst terror attack since the 2005 London bombings.

In Manchester's St. Ann's Square, where a sea of floral tributes grows by the hour, a crowd sang "Don't Look Back in Anger" - a song by the Manchester band Oasis.

May insisted Thursday that progress is being made in the Manchester bombing investigation but added the national threat level remains critical - meaning another attack may be imminent. The hospital said 12 children were still being treated there.

The city's two giant soccer clubs, Manchester United and Manchester City, laid aside their fierce rivalry to jointly donate 1 million pounds ($1.3 million) to an emergency fund set up to support families affected by the attack.

On the artistic front, Grande cancelled concerts that were to take place Thursday and Friday in London, and in several other sites in Europe.
