Hot! 19 Dead at Ariana Grande Concert In England Following Explosion

MANCHESTER, England — A “massive bang” that may have been a suicide bombing detonated during an Ariana Grande concert Monday night at a Manchester arena. The police said at least 19 people were killed and dozens wounded in what they were calling a terrorist attack.

Panic and mayhem seized the crowd at the Manchester Arena as the sound of the blast reverberated through the building, just as the show was ending. Traumatized fans, including children, screamed and fled.

There was no immediate word from the police on the precise cause of the blast but unconfirmed reports said it was possibly a suicide bomber who had detonated a nail-filled explosive device.

The scene immediately evoked the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015, which included a deadly assault inside a concert arena where the Eagles of Death Metal had been playing.

“This is currently being treated as a terrorist incident until the police know otherwise,” the Manchester police said in a Twitter post.

People at the concert at the Manchester Arena said they had heard what sounded like explosions at the end of the show, around 10:30 p.m.
