19 Dead in Manchester Terrorist Attack.

The unthinkable has happened as a room full of Ariana Grande fans were getting ready to peacefully file out of Manchester Arena.

Loud explosions were heard amongst screams of terror as large bombs detonated in the packed concert hall toward the end of Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman tour.

Although police have been unable to identify the bombers at this stage, there is tentative information that they have obtained a possible ID and are on the hunt for suspects.

Meanwhile, 19 people have been confirmed dead, as of 3:20 a.m. London time, whilst a further 50 are being treated at six hospitals across the country.

So far, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack, although police have confirmed that they are currently treating this incident as a terrorist attack.

If you would like to receive live updates, a Reddit thread has been created in order to stay abreast of any developments. Greater Manchester Police have also provided a support line, as well as the Anti-Terrorist hotline (0800 789321) should anyone have any information pertaining to the incident or the identity of the attackers.

The Elephant Journal community is sending its love and hope to all of those affected by this horrific attack.
