    Police think that the bomb maker responsible for providing the perpetrator of the Monday Manchester attack with an explosive device is still on the run, Manchester Evening News reported Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said that they were investigating a "network" of people in relation to the terrorist attack and had already detained four men.

    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 dead and dozens more injured. Earlier in the day, local health service chief said 20 victims remain in critical condition.

    UK police have identified 22-year-old Salman Abedi as the individual they suspect of having perpetrated the attack. Daesh (banned in numerous countries) terror organization has reportedly claimed responsibility for the attack.
