In what is being confirmed as a “terror attack” at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, at least 19 people have been killed and an additional 50 wounded. The deadly bombing is the worst attack on British soil since 2005.
Witness reports indicate hearing one or two loud blasts. Another witness said that the attack occurred after the concert concluded. The blast(s) itself actually took place outside, but very near the concert venue in a crowded public area. A bomb squad detonated a suspicious object, which was later confirmed to be nothing more than clothing.
The attack sent panic through the crowds, and mobs of terrified teenagers were stampeding to flee the scene. Meanwhile worried parents rushed the scene to find their children.
