UN boss condemns Manchester terror attack
UN Secretary General António Guterres has condemned Monday night’s terror attack in Manchester, UK.
The May 22 attack killed 22 people and injured 59.
“My heart is with people of Manchester & all victims of terrorism. We must stand together against violence and bring perpetrators to justice,” Mr Guterres said in a tweet.
The attack occurred when a man armed with an improvised bomb killed at least 22 people and injured 59 outside a concert arena filled with teenagers in central Manchester.
The attack is said to be the worst terror incident in the UK since 2005.
Police said the bomber, who died in the explosion, detonated the device shortly after the end of a concert by US pop star Ariana Grande at about 10.30pm.
The Islamic State (IS) has taken responsibility for the attack.
