U.S. leaks shed light on Manchester attack, but infuriate UK

Interior minister Amber Rudd had described the leaks as "irritating" early on Thursday, after details about bomber Salman Abedi, including his name, first appeared in USA media, adding that Britain's allies were perfectly clear that it "shouldn't happen again".

The bombing, which took place at the Manchester Arena indoor venue just after the end of a concert by US pop singer Ariana Grande, was the deadliest in Britain since July 2005, when 52 people were killed in attacks on London's transport network.

Forensic crime scene images showing fragments from the bomb as well as a backpack allegedly used to carry it appeared in the New York Times on Thursday, and were picked up by other media outlets.

It is not known who has been leaking the information or where they work.

Police hunting the terror network behind the Manchester Arena bombing have stopped passing information to the United States on the investigation as a major transatlantic row erupted over leaks of key evidence in the USA, according to a report.

Normally, Britain and America sustain a two-way flow of information on terror investigations.

Police continue to investigate contacts that suicide bomber Salman Abedi had in the United Kingdom and his suspected link to a wider extremist "network".

The police, Downing Street and the Home Office refused to comment on the BBC report, but Theresa May will confront Donald Trump about the leaks - including crime scene photographs - when she meets him at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Thursday. There are now eight men in custody in connection with the attack. One of those killed was an eight-year-old girl.

The anti-terror force that took Hashim Abedi into custody in Libya said the teenager had confessed that both he and his brother, Salman, were members of the Islamic State (ISIS) group and that he "knew all the details" of the Manchester attack plot.

In Manchester, northwest England, feelings were still raw following Abedi's attack on a concert by U.S. pop star Ariana Grande - especially so as the bomber was born in the city.

Manchester police said Thursday they had let a woman walk free after she was detained for questioning late on Wednesday in the city's northern Blackley area. Abedi's brother has confessed to a Libyan militia that the two of them belonged to Islamic State.

Shows Thursday and Friday in London were canceled, along with concerts through June 5 in Belgium, Poland, Germany and Switzerland.
