According to the authorities, more arrests are possible in the case.

S Salman Abedi, detonated a homemade bomb in the venue foyer on Ariana Grande's concert location, killing 22 people and injuring dozens more.

In the benefit concert, Grande was joined by some of the biggest names in music, including Liam Gallagher, Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, Robbie Williams, Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.
