    The British police said on Saturday they had searched two addresses in Manchester as the probe into the deadly concert bombing was unfolding.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – UK police searched two addresses in the inner areas of Manchester as part of a probe into the recent terror attack, Greater Manchester Police said early Saturday.

    "Officers have been searching two addresses in the Cheetham Hill and Longsight areas of Manchester. This is part of the on-going investigation into the attack at Manchester Arena," the police statement read.

    A total of eleven people have been arrested in connection with the inquiry, but a man and a woman have since been released without charge. The police said nine men were still in custody for questioning.

    The country was put on the highest terror threat level after an explosion went off on Monday at the end of a pop concert at Manchester Arena, leaving 22 people dead and a hundred more injured.
