Manchester Attack: Bomber’s father ‘was in a militant group’, Ariana Grande to help victims, Rooney donates £100,000 to victims

Ramadan Abedi, father of Manchester Arena suicide bomber, Salman Abedi was once a member of a Libyan militant group with alleged ties to Al-Qaeda.

Spokesman for Libya’s Deterrence Force, Ahmed bin Salem said Abedi’s father “was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG).”

Abedi was hunted by the regime of Moamer Kadhafi for his ties to the group, finding refuge in Britain before returning to Libya in 2011, British media have reported.

“The investigation is ongoing and he is still being questioned by the relevant services. I cannot give more details,” Bin Salem said.

Abedi’s father and his brother were arrested after Monday’s attack at Ariana Grande's concert which killed 22 people and injured others.

Meanwhile, Ariana Grande is reportedly traumatised by the terror attack, which followed her Dangerous Woman concert in the city.

The report also claimed she is now focusing her time and efforts to helping the victims who are mostly in the hospitals.

Following the attack, Ariana posted a heartfelt tweet reading: ‘broken.  from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.’

The report says she is focusing her attention on how she can ‘help’ the families of the victims.

‘[She’s] traumatised,’ it said.

‘Right now, her main headspace and focus is the victims and how she can help.

‘It’s less about her and her own state, and it’s more about them. She’s alive, she’s safe. This isn’t about her — it’s about the victims.’

Also England striker Wayne Rooney, has just donated £100,000 through his foundation to help families affected by the Monday night terror attack in Manchester.

The 31-year-old footballer Manchester United captain said “my heart goes out all those affected. There are moments in life that instantly affect you and stop you in your tracks. Monday night was one of those occasions. Like so many others, I have enjoyed great nights at the arena, often with my family. As a father, I am horrified that a night out for so many young people could end so tragically”.
