Manchester hits by lethal bomb blast; Ariana Grande Concert
Written by Pallavi Parmar

Terrorism became the biggest threat to the world and it hits hard world widely. Yes, I am talking about the Manchester bomb blast which took place just after the concert of the American pop singer Ariana Grande. On 22 May 2017, an explosion occurred just outside the Manchester Arena in Manchester, the United Kingdom in which at least 19 people killed and 50 got injured. The crowded pop concert in Manchester is deadliest attack in Britain in a decade. The Manchester police are working on the assumption that the deadly explosion at the concert was an act of terrorism. More than 21,000 people attended this concert this bomb blast would be the worst act of terrorism in Britain since the 2005 bombings of London’s buses and subway killed 52 people.

The American Pop singer Ariana Grande didn’t get hurt but she was broken after this lethal attack and tweeted “broken. from the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.”

The British Prime Minister Theresa May suspended her General Election campaign in the wake of this apparent lethal terror attack and there will be an emergency Cobra meeting at 9 am this morning. But the British authorities, who have foiled numerous terrorist plots, will hardly be surprised. The threat level set by MI5, the domestic intelligence service, has been set at “severe,” the second-highest level, for months, meaning that an attack was considered “highly likely.” And counterterrorism officials have been warning that as the Islamic State comes under more military pressure in Iraq and Syria, it will try to strike abroad. The authorities suspect the blast came from either an abandoned backpack or a suicide bomber, a senior American intelligence official said. British officials said they were investigating reports that a suicide bomber detonated an improvised device containing nuts and bolts as shrapnel.

Everyone in the world is praying for those affected and condemns for this deadliest ever attack to twitter.

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly condemned on twitter

Parents who were separated from their children during the mayhem were told to go to nearby hotels, where many had taken refuge. Other children were being kept in the arena. This is one of the lethal attacks since 7 July 2005 London bombings which sometimes referred to as 7/7 because this was a series of coordinated terrorist suicide bomb attacks in central London which targeted civilians using the public transport system during the rush hour.
