WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — More than 70% of respondents in the United States and 10 EU states said they were concerned about Islamic extremism even before Manchester’s terror attack, a Pew Research Center survey revealed.
Roughly 72% of Americans were either "somewhat" or "very concerned" about Islamic extremism while around 75% of respondents across ten EU countries felt the same, the poll showed on Wednesday.
A suicide attack by a 22-year-old British-born man of Libyan descent claimed 22 lives and injured over 60 after a concert by US singer Ariana Grande. Many of those killed and hurt were children and teenagers. The bomber's elder brother was detained south of Manchester on Tuesday.
