The British government has vowed to get at all the people behind the Monday terror act in Manchester City, which claimed 22 lives , with scores wounded just as the Prime Minister, Theresa May, said the secrutity agencies were already getting clues to what actually happened.
“We have known some of the perpetrators of the heinus crime. They cannot go free. The security network is closing in on them and very soon, they will be exposed,” the visibly shaken Prime Minister told news people.
Not even the claim by the Islamic terrorist group , ISIS, that it carried the attack was enough to dampen the spirit of both the government and the Britons, as they rally round the families ,who lost their loved ones, including those receiving various treatment for variuos degrees of injuries sustained from the attack.
Solidarity messages have continued to pour in from many countries of the world.
Law-enforcement officials told NBC that a single explosion took place outside the arena by the train station.
The explosion was timed to go off at the end of the concert as people exited the venue, according to the network.
Among those killed were the man, suspected to have planted the explosive device, as he was still within the spot of his act when the loud explosion rent the air.
The names of the dead were still being kept secret, pending security closing up on their primary investgatipn, as well as first contacting their relations.
Most of the victims were young people at the social function about to leave the venue before the explosion sounded, thereby sending most of them into stampede state.
Social media platforms, including Twitter, Facebook , WhatsApp and othets were used by people to reach their relations, who were at the function.
It is expected that the footage from the close circuit cameras should help the authorities to unravel the circumstances that led to the attack, said a secirty personnel.
