This call for driving out terrorism is a message I took to a historic gathering of Arab and Muslim leaders across the region, hosted by Saudi Arabia. There, I spent much time with King Salman, a wise man who wants to see things get much better rapidly. The leaders of the Middle East have agreed at this unprecedented meeting to stop funding the radical ideology that leads to this horrible terrorism all over the globe.
My travels and meetings have given me renewed hope that nations of many faiths can unite to defeat terrorism, a common threat to all of humanity. Terrorism must be stopped in its tracks, or the horror you saw in Manchester and so many other places will continue forever. You have thousands and thousands of people pouring into our various countries and spreading throughout, and in many cases, we have no idea who they are. We must be tough. We must be strong. And we must be vigilant. Trump
Salman Abedi thought he was meeting an underage girl at the Ariana Grande concert.
Abedi was told by the girl by text messages to get her suitcase backpack from one of the storage lockers at the Manchester Victoria station and bring it to her at the concert:
Abedi was told not to open the suitcase backpack because the suitcase contained drugs etc....
Abedi was to wait for her and meet her after the concert in the Foyer.
The suitcase backpack filled with ball bearings and nails was then remotely detonated.
Unlike most suicide bombers Salman Abedi was free to come and go, he did not have any handlers to keep a watchful eye on him. He was not under any constraints.
Meaning that he was manipulated into carrying the IED suitcase backpack into the Foyer, not knowing what the suitcase backpack contained.
It was remotely detonated.
And the detonator placed near his dead body during the mayhem.
Most Jihadist make a video before they commit mass murder.
The suicide bomber who blew himself up at a pop concert killing 22 people including young children has been named as Salman Abedi.
ISIS have claimed responsibility after the terrorist set off a ball bearing bomb at an Ariana Grande concert, killing 22 and injuring 119 in the worst terror attack Britain has seen since the 7/7 London bombings.
Eight-year-old Saffie Roussos, 18-year-old Georgina Callander and 26-year-old John Atkinson were among those killed. Of the injured, at least 12 were children were among 59 taken to hospital, with 60 others treated at the scene.
Traumatised witnesses have told how of nuts and bolts tore into young music fans when the bomb was detonated in the foyer area of the Manchester Arena moments after a concert by the US popstar ended.
The bomber - named today as 22-year-old Salman Abedi - was known to authorities. He died at the scene and police carried out a controlled explosion at what is believed to be his home during raids around the city today.
