Over 20 people were killed at an Ariana Grande concert in the city last night
Last night (May 22) saw a terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester leave 22 people dead and 59 wounded following an explosion in the foyer of the Manchester Arena venue. Fans were leaving the show when a bomb was detonated by a suicide bomber. The lone attacker died in the explosion from what is said to be a home-made bomb. The bomber has since been named and ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.
Ex-Oasis guitarist and Manchester native uploaded a photo of a “I ❤️ Manchester” keyring to Instagram, along with the caption: “NO WORDS.” See that post below.
The entertainment world has spoken out in tribute following the attack – with the likes of Johnny Marr, Taylor Swift, Liam Gallagher, Katy Perry, Harry Styles and many more honouring those who died and the people of Manchester.
Following the attack, over half a million pound has been raised for the victims and their families.
