19 Killed, 50 Injured In Terror Attack At Ariana Grande's UK Concert

Posted at May 23rd, 2017 | by Shivani Goel | in News

A reported explosion at Ariana Grande‘s concert in Manchester, UK has led to the death of 19 people, with over 50 injured so far. The incident is being treated as a terror attack till further information is uncovered and it happened towards the closing of the event. It’s an absolutely appalling attack, with a lot of attendees just being kids out to enjoy a concert.

Statement by Greater Manchester chief constable Ian Hopkins:

I can confirm the details of events tonight that we currently know. At around 10.33pm last night we received reports of an explosion at the Manchester Arena in the city centre. It was at the conclusion of an Ariana Grande concert.

Currently we have 19 people confirmed to have died and around 50 people injured.

The injured are being treated at six hospitals across Greater Manchester. My thoughts are with all those who have been affected and we are doing all we can to support them.

We are currently treating this as a terrorist incident until we know otherwise. We are working closely with the national counter-terrorism policing network and UK intelligence partners.

I want to thank people for their support and would ask them to remain vigilant and if they have any concerns report them in confidence to us on the anti-terrorist hotline: 0800 789321.

Other artists also sent out wishes for those affected.

Politicians, including India’s PM, sent out condolences as well.

Stay tuned for updates.
