According to the Manchester arena website, the arena is one of the biggest indoor venues in Europe that can hold up to 21,000 people. Unfortunately many of these people witnessed an explosion that in its wake left many dead and many more injured.

 

On Monday, May 22, an apparent terrorist attack occurred only moments after an Ariana Grande concert. This attack happened through, according to ABC news, a suicide bomber that left 22 dead and 59 injured.

 

In the latest statement on the Manchester Arena incident released by Chief Constable Ian Hopkins, he had this to say, “This is a fast-moving investigation and we have significant resources deployed to both the investigation and visible patrols that people will see across greater Manchester as they wake up to the news of the events of last night. This will include armed officers as people would expect. More than 400 officers have been involved in this operation during the night.”

 

Ariana Grande’s representatives have confirmed that the artist was not harmed and although she remained relatively silent on social media she took the time to tweet one thing: “broken.
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.”

People from all over the world have been mourning this great loss including artists such as John Legend, Nick Jonas, and Harry Styles.

As Prime Minister Theresa May said,”My thoughts are with the victims and the families of those affected.”
