7th person linked to Manchester attack detained by police

Specifically, under the Five Eyes Intelligence agreement, the information is shared with the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

A total of eight arrests had been made as of Thursday morning.

Manchester police confirmed that the Monday's attack (22 May) during an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena claimed lives of at least 22 people including children.

The pictures published by the New York Times included remains of the bomb and of the rucksack carried by the suicide bomber, and showed blood stains amid the wreckage. Libyan officials said that Hashem knew about the planned attack.

The U.K.'s home secretary, Amber Rudd, told the BBC Radio on Wednesday that she found the leaks "irritating" because it could hurt the integrity of the investigation and ultimately "the element of surprise" to catch other suspected terrorists.

"I want to reassure people that the arrests that we have made are significant, and initial searches of premises have revealed items that we believe are very important to the investigation", he said. British officials believe the information released to the American media came from security agencies and not the White House.

The 23-year-old singer said she will be returning to Manchester to "spend time with my fans" and "to raise money for the victims and their families".

It said security services were concerned further bombs could have been created by a network intent on carrying out further attacks.

"This damage is even greater when it involves unauthorized disclosure of potential evidence in the middle of a major counter terrorism investigation", it added.

British media reported that Abdul Wahab Hafidah died after being run over and stabbed in the neck in Manchester's Moss Side district in May past year. Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham raised the issue with the USA ambassador, reports said. But they didn't. Burnham tweeted "They haven't".

Prime Minister Theresa May also criticized the leak, which followed the naming of the main suspect by US media before British authorities.
