UK police said they have named the Manchester attacker as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, Greater Manchester Police's Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said.

Abedi "has not yet been formally identified and I wouldn't wish, therefore, to comment further," the chief constable said.

Police said that they are trying to establish if the suspected Manchester attack perpetrator was acting alone or as part of a terrorist network.

"Priority is to continue to investigate whether he was acting alone or working as part of a wider network," Hopkins said.
