Election Campaign Resumes After Manchester Attack

Britain’s politicians resume campaigning in earnest on Friday with national security thrust into the spotlight, as police scramble to bust a Libya-linked terrorist network thought to be behind the Manchester terror attack.
Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, had suspended campaigning after Monday’s suicide bombing at a Manchester pop concert, which killed 22 people, including many teenagers, and wounded dozens more, AFP reported. Eight suspects are currently in detention on UK soil in connection with the blast claimed by the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group, while police in Libya have detained the father and brother of 22-year-old suicide bomber Salman Abedi.
Police said a man was arrested in the Moss Side area of Manchester in the early hours of Friday and another man held earlier was released without charge.
