Manchester police are searching for Salman Abedi, 22, in connection with the bombing outside the area Ariana Grande concert in Manchester England last night. The photo shows a man with dark hair squatting and was taken by surveillance camera.

Salman Abedi, lived in a house just 3.5 miles from the arena, where he detonated a homemade bomb in a public concourse around 10:30 p.m. on Monday

He is wearing what appears to be a T-shirt that security personnel at the venue wear. There is speculation that he was former security, new the layout of the place, and knew where parents would meet there under age children. This area was the apparent target for the bomber.

The man, Salman Abedi, lived in a house just 3.5 miles from the arena, where he detonated a homemade bomb in a public concourse around 10:30 p.m. on Monday as a concert by the American pop star Ariana Grande was ending and as crowds of teenagers had begun to leave, many for an adjacent train station. He died in the attack.

At a late afternoon news conference, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins of the Greater Manchester Police identified the bomber as Mr. Abedi after several news publications reported his name, but declined to provide any further details, noting that a coroner had not yet officially identified him.

Shoddy reporting: Salman Abedi was the suicide bomber who died in the explosion. He was a young, black man with a beard, as opposed to the middle aged clean shaven Asian man in the photo. Her name is 'Ariana Grande', not 'Anna grand'. How can he have died in the attack, and still be seen in that picture, alive? And how are the police still looking for him? The reason that man in the picture is wearing a security shirt, is because he's a security guard. He was even interviewed on CNN. Stop spreading fake news, please.
