    Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Secretary General Lamberto Zannier on Tuesday urged OSCE members to join efforts in countering terrorism in the wake of the deadly attack of the UK city of Manchester.

    VIENNA (Sputnik) — The OSCE is currently holding a conference in the Austrian capital of Vienna dedicated to measures aimed at preventing and countering violent extremism and radicalization.

    "Barbaric #Manchester attack at the centre of today's OSCE counter terrorism conference. We must join forces and react. #UnitedCVE," Zannier said on Twitter.

    The blast, which the police are considering a terrorist attack at the moment, took place outside the Manchester Arena late on Monday at the end of US singer Ariana Grande's concert, leaving at least 22 people dead and almost 60 injured.
