Manchester bombing probe widens with arrest of man in West Sussex

LONDON (AP) - British police have made an arrest on the south coast of England in the widening inquiry into the deadly Manchester concert bombing.

- A 25-year-old man is arrested in Old Trafford, to the east of the city.

In Manchester, police raided the home of another Libyan family in the Whalley Range area of south Manchester this morning, with searches of the property continuing.

A Whitehall official said previously that Abedi was one of a "pool" of former subjects of interest whose risk remained "subject to review" by the security service and its partners.

The 23-year-old man was arrested in Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, "on suspicion on offences contrary to the terrorism act", Greater Manchester Police said on Twitter.

The total number of people in cusody in connection with the bombing was 14 while two others were earlier released without charge.

A crackdown on the suspected terror network behind the Manchester Arena suicide bomber saw police carry out a flurry of armed raids and arrests over the weekend.

When asked how many potential militants the government was anxious about, Rudd said the security services were looking at 500 different potential plots, involving 3,000 people as a "top list", with a further 20,000 beneath that. Seven children were among 22 people killed when he blew himself up at a pop concert at the Manchester Arena in northwest England on May 22.

Intelligence officials also knew of Abedi's links to a militant Islamist group in Libya - titled the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) - and to Isis-linked jihadists in the United Kingdom, but still took no action to detain the 22-year-old.

BBC Newsnight reported that when Abedi was 16 he fought against the Muammar Gaddafi regime with his father.

The security services have stressed they believe members of Abedi's network may still be at large despite significant progress in the investigation and the lowering of the UK's terror threat level.

On Sunday, police released photographs from security cameras showing Abedi on the night of the massacre, wearing jeans and trainers, a black bodywarmer and a baseball cap, with the straps of his backpack visible on his shoulders.

She said the government had "never understated" the threat of a terror attack in the United Kingdom, adding: "We have to level with people".

Greater Manchester Police have said Abedi returned to the United Kingdom from overseas on May 18.

It means that soldiers deployed to bolster security will stand down on Monday night as an attack is no longer considered imminent.
