    Investigators in the United Kingdom and United States will soon identify the individuals responsible for carrying out a terrorist attack at an arena in the UK city of Manchester, former CIA Director John Brennan said at a US House Intelligence Committee hearing on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — A deadly blast occurred outside the Manchester Arena at the end of US singer Ariana Grande's concert on Monday night, leaving at least 22 people dead and at least 120 injured. The Greater Manchester police department said the assailant died in the attack after setting off an improvised explosive device.

    Earlier in the day, the US offered the UK help in the investigation into the attack.

    "I am confident that intelligence, security, and law enforcement officers for the United Kingdom, United States, and other countries are actively working to find those responsible and to prevent further attacks," Brennan stated.

    Daesh terrorist group has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.
