Mrs May announced late on Tuesday that the UK's terror threat level was being raised to the highest category for the first time for almost a decade.

Speaking from DOWNING STREET after chairing a meeting of the COBRA (Cabinet Office Briefing Rooms) emergency response committee, the British Prime Minister said as many as 1,000 Army troops have already been deployed to boost security operations.

Armed police officers patrol outside at St Paul's Cathedral in London, Wednesday May 24, 2017 to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the Order of the British Empire. The official threat level in Britain has since been raised to its highest point.

Citing unnamed U.S. intelligence officials, multiple news outlets published details about Monday's bombing of the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester that killed 22 people.

Muye Li, a 23-year-old student who lives on the third floor, said he heard an explosion as police stormed an apartment on his floor.

Hashem had been "under surveillance for a month and a half" and "investigation teams supplied intelligence that he was planning a terrorist attack in the capital Tripoli", the Deterrence Force said on its Facebook page.

Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions said he has been in contact with British Home Secretary Amber Rudd on the matter.

Defending its decision to publish the pictures, the New York Times said: "The images and information presented were neither graphic nor disrespectful of victims, and consistent with the common line of reporting on weapons used in horrific crimes". Worldwide security analyst Bob Ayers said: "In terms of the information exchange, the United Kingdom receives more information than it provides and that's very valuable for the United Kingdom".

Police, who believe Abedi was part of a network, are holding eight people in custody in connection with the attack.

The newspaper's report carried detailed information about the device and how it appears the young Manchester man might have carried out the attack, including preliminary findings by the British authorities that the small detonator switch was found in the bomber's left hand.

The investigation into the Manchester Arena atrocity has continued apace as security agencies swooped on suicide bomber Salman Abedi's suspected network.

Ismail Abedi is one of the Manchester bomber's brothers.

"Yes, quite frankly. I mean the British police have been very clear that they want to control the flow of information in order to protect operational integrity, the element of surprise, so it is irritating if it gets released from other sources and I have been very clear with our friends that should not happen again".

Abedi's name was circulating in the United States media on Tuesday hours before it was confirmed by UK police, who had earlier urged reporters not to publish speculation about the bomber's identity.

She also defended him as "a great kid" and said he had no links to the Islamic State group or other militant groups.

In addition to those killed in the concert attack, Manchester officials raised to 119 the number of people who sought medical treatment after the attack, including those who traveled to hospitals on their own.

As a result, they're "really, really, really mad about this", Frank says.

Many had serious wounds that will require "very long term care and support in terms of their recovery", Rouse said.

Officials said all those hospitalized had been identified.

A Greater Manchester Police (GMP) spokeswoman did not comment to CNN on the photo publication.
