Manchester Terror Group Could Still Be at Large

Members of Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi’s network are still potentially at large, British Interior Minister Amber Rudd said on Sunday, after the terrorism threat level was lowered due to significant progress in the investigation.
Police have said they have arrested a large part of the network behind the bombing, which killed 22 people at a concert hall, and two more men were arrested on Saturday as police continued to close in on the group, Reuters reported. Asked during an interview on BBC television whether some of the group were still at large, Rudd said, “Potentially. It is an ongoing operation. There are 11 people in custody; the operation is still really at full tilt in a way.”
Prime Minister Theresa May said developments in the investigation into the bombing meant intelligence experts had decided to lower the threat level from its highest rating “critical”, meaning an attack could be imminent, to “severe”. Police have issued a photograph of Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton born to Libyan parents, taken on Monday night before he blew himself up and said they believed he had assembled his bomb in an apartment in the city center.
