More on #Manchester, UK

Chaos engulfing Libya since the British-backed removal of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 has left armed groups including Islamist factions battling for control as smugglers launch thousands of refugees from its shores.Isis has gained a foothold in the country, using it for terror training camps that were bombed by the US in January over intelligence that “external plotters were actively planning operations against Europe”.Abedi’s movements inside the country are unclear, but France’s new interior minister said he may have travelled onwards to Syria.“All of a sudden he travelled to Libya and then most likely to Syria, became radicalised and decided to commit this attack,” Gerard Collomb told BFMTV.
