According to reports, ISIS have claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing which ripped through Manchester Arena’s foyer, killing 22 people and injured 59 others. The male which some media outlets have dubbed a “lone wolf” bomber was confirmed, by police, to have died on site.
The terrorist group released statements through their media outlet which praised the atrocity. It claimed that more than 100 “crusaders” were wounded or killed at the concert which it said was “shameless”.
