    On May 22, the UK faced a dreadful attack by the entrance to Manchester Arena following US singer Ariana Grande’s concert. However, only about half of the suspected instigators were subjected to punishment.

    LONDON (Sputnik) — A London court sentenced a UK-Libyan citizen with links to Salman Ramadan Abedi, the perpetrator of the Manchester terror attack in May, to 10 years of prison for being a member of the internationally-condemned terror organization Daesh (ISIS), local media reported Friday.

     Mohammed Abdallah, 26, was also found guilty of possessing a Kalashnikov rifle and of receiving around $2,700 for terrorism and becoming a Daesh member, The Guardian reported.
