Britain’s Prime Minister announced on Tuesday to intensify security and appoint the military to collaborate with police to bring peace to Britain again, fearing the prospects of another terrorist attack that may happen.
The announcement came following the investigations carried out into the bomber attack that led to 22 killed and 59 injured and the prospects that the attack was orchestrated by an extremist group that threatens and conspires against Britain.
“It is a possibility we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack,” Prime Minister Theresa May said in Manchester after a meeting of her top security officials.
The police headed to the place where Salman Abedi, 22, the man who the police identified as the suicidal bomber who carried out the attack and died in the incident. Chief Constable Ian Hopkins of the Greater Manchester Police said that they are conducting investigations into the prospects of the existence of another terrorist bomber or extremist groups in ties with Abedi.
A senior United States official announced on Tuesday night facts that may raise eyebrows towards Abedi’s controversial involvement with terrorist networks as it was said that Abedi hit Libya several times, where his parents came from, but they are uncertain about the last trip conducted to Libya. However, the officials do not have the authority to discourse about private of secret information in any form.
The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the bomber attack, confirming on social media that “one of the soldiers of the caliphate was able to place an explosive device within a gathering of the crusaders in the city of Manchester.” The stamen posted is one of many statements written by several Islamic State statements online.
Isis also claimed another attack conducted on March 22nd near parliament as a British man struck 4 people on Westminster bridge and killed a police officer.
