    UK paramedics have revised the toll of those who were injured in the Manchester terrorist attack to almost 120, North West Ambulance Service chief executive Derek Cartwright said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Monday night, an explosion occurred outside the Manchester Arena at the end of US singer Ariana Grande's concert, leaving at least 22 people, including many children, dead. The earlier numbers of those injured stood at 59.

    "In total, our clinicians treated and took 59 patients to hospital and approximately 60 ‘walking wounded’ were also treated by our crews but did not go to hospital," Cartwright said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News newspaper.

    UK police have confirmed the attack to be an act of terror performed by one person, who died after detonating an explosive device.

    Earlier today, Daesh claimed responsibility for the attack.
