A compilation of facts in the media.
Salman Ramadan Abedi, Libyan descent.
Born in Manchester.
He lived in Manchester, [maybe in] Elsmore Road, Manchester,
He grew up in the Whalley Range area and attended Whalley Range High School before apparently working at Didsbury Mosque in 2013.
Abedi was born in Manchester in 1994, the second youngest of four children.
His parents were Libyan refugees who came to the UK to escape the Gaddafi regime.
His mother, Samia Tabbal, 50, and father, Ramadan Abedi, a security officer, were both born in Libya but appear to have emigrated to London before moving to the Fallowfield area of south Manchester where they have lived for at least ten years.
He has a brother, Ismael. [Press speculation has him as] the 23-year-old man arrested in the Chorlton area of South Manchester, near an address where Abedi’s family previously lived.
ISIS (of course).
The terrorist group released statements in several languages through its central media body praising the atrocity, claiming more than 100 “crusaders” were killed or wounded at the “shameless” concert.
“With Allah’s grace and support, a soldier of the Khilafah [caliphate] managed to place explosive devices in the midst of the gatherings of the crusaders in the British city of Manchester,” said the English version.
Children and teenagers are crusaders?
