Manchester attack: PM condemns 'sickening, cowardly' act



Theresa May has said the "callous terrorist attack" in Manchester, which left 22 dead, was one of the worst ever experienced in British history.
The prime minister said the bombing was an act of "sickening cowardice" with young people having been deliberately and indiscriminately targeted.
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said the country should "not allow this violence to divide us".
General election campaigning has been suspended until further notice.
Saying her thoughts and prayers were with the families of those killed and the injured, the PM said there would be difficult days ahead but Britain's "spirit will never be broken... terrorists will never win and our way of life will always prevail".
Speaking in Downing Street, she said it was "beyond doubt" that the attack at the Ariana Grande concert, in which children were among the dead and more than 50 people were injured, was "among the worst terrorist incidents we have ever experienced in the UK".
"All acts of terrorism are cowardly attacks against innocent people but this attack stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent and defenceless young people," she said.
Mrs May said the police were working to establish the full facts and although they believed they knew the attacker's identity, this would not be confirmed while they investigated whether he acted alone or had been helped by others.
