The United Kingdom has raised their terror threat level to the highest it’s been in a decade, warning the public that the government has reason to believe more attacks are likely in the foreseeable future.
Authorities have also arrested three more people in connection with suicide bomber Salman Abedi, who police say killed 22 people and injured many more in a nail bomb attack at a Manchester concert for American pop singer Ariana Grande, according to CNN.
Police are now saying that 22-year-old Abedi did not act alone in his terror attack on Monday, which specifically targeted children.
Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said, "It is very clear that this is a network we are investigating.”
French Interior Minister Gérard Collomb claims that Abedi had “proven links to ISIS.”.
UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd revealed, "The intelligence services know a lot of people, and I'm sure we will find out more what level they knew about [Abedi] in due course. But at the moment all they have confirmed is that they did know about him. And as I say, we will find out more when the operation is complete."
A couple months ago, Abedi’s neighbors were disturbed by his tendency to stand in front of his house and scream out an Islamic prayer, according to the UK’s The Telegraph.
His own parents reported him to security officials because they felt he was “dangerous,” according to NBC News.
And the The Telegraph is reporting that Abedi’s own imam felt he was a dangerous extremist and talked about how Abedi showed him “the face of hate” whenever he gave anti-ISIS speeches.
But now officials have revealed something even more telling....STORY CONTINUES ON NEXT PAGE.
