    The UK police have "got hold of a large part" of the terror network that perpetrated the terrorist attack in Manchester, National Counter Terrorism Policing (NaCTSO) head Mark Rowley said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – According to Rowley, quoted by the ITV channel, the progress the detectives have made in the investigation of the incident is "immense." Nevertheless, "important" lines of inquiry remain to be pursued and further arrests are likely, he said.

    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.

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

    According to the authorities, a total of ten people have been arrested as part of the investigation.
