Khan’s London: Violent Crime on Underground Up 43 Percent

Father and 3 family members of Manchester jihad bomber arrested, ‘was aware of all details’ and ‘planned own terror attack’

The brother was arrested in Libya. He sang like a canary and knew everything about the plot to blow up a pop concert filled with little girls. The father was arrested in Libya, too, insisting his suicide bomber son was innocent. Under Islamic law, the father is correct. Murder and mayhem in the cause of Islam is righteous.

Libya — stop immigration from jihad nations. Trump is right.

Four men are now in custody, including three arrested in south Manchester on Wednesday and a 23-year-old detained Tuesday. Police have not yet found the bomb making equipment — the bomb maker must still be at large.

The mosque, which, it is alleged, funded al Qaeda, should be shuttered immediately.

The 22-year-old behind the deadly bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester was linked to a wider network and had returned to Britain from Libya just days before launching his attack, officials say.

“It is very clear that this is a network we are investigating,” Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said Wednesday following a series of raids and arrests after the attack.

A fifth suspect, believed to be carrying a package, has been arrested in Wigan today as detectives probe a “network” linked to the Manchester suicide bomber.

The man was taken into custody in connection with Monday night’s attack and officers are assessing the package, Greater Manchester Police said.

 Meanwhile, the terrorist’s father and brother were detained in Libya while police have confirmed that an off-duty female police officer was among the 22 people killed in the attack.

Libyan security forces said the brother “was aware of all the details” of attack plans.

Chief Constable Ian Hopkins has said officers are investigating associates of Salman Abedi when asked if they are seeking a “bomb maker”.

Abedi’s father Ramadan has reportedly been detained by Libyan counter terrorism police while recording television interviews, according to ITV News.

It follows an interview in which he denied his son Salman’s involvement in the blast and said: “We don’t believe in killing innocents. This is not us.”

Abedi’s younger brother Hashem has also reportedly been arrested in Tripoli, Libya, on suspicion of having links to the Islamic State group that claimed responsibility for the attack.

It is believed he travelled there on April 16.

On Wednesday a Muslim community worker told BBC News that members of the public called the police anti-terrorism hotline warning about Abedi’s extreme and violent views several years ago.

It follows reports in the US that security services had been made aware of his views through a family member.

NBC News also reported that multiple US intelligence and law enforcement officials say UK bomber, Salman Abedi, was known to US authorities before attack.

It comes as nearly 1,000 soldiers are being immediately deployed on Britain’s streets to support police in the wake of the Manchester suicide bombing, as the UK remains on critical terror alert amid fears Abedi did not act alone.
