Ariana Grande has suspended her Dangerous Woman tour following a terror attack that killed 22 people and left 59 injured at Manchester Arena on Monday.

The attack was the deadliest in Britain since July 7, 2005 when four suicide bombers inspired by Al-Qaeda attacked London's transport system during rush hour, killing 52 people and wounding 700 more.

Police in Tripoli, the Libyan capital, arrested a brother of Abedi and his father.

British police meanwhile made an arrest in Nuneaton, south of Manchester, after Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Salman Abedi "likely" did not act alone and had been known to security forces "up to a point". He was reportedly in the process of receiving cash transferred from Salman at the time of his arrest.

A Western security official identified the first man arrested as Ismail Abedi, 23, the suspect's brother.

Manchester bomber Salman Abedi once exhibited so much hostility to an anti-extremist preacher at his local mosque members feared he would become violent, The Guardian reports.

Bomber was in Germany days before attack
Though it's unclear if the newspaper obtained the information from USA officials, the story has angered many British officials. Officials said 64 people remained hospitalized, including 20 who were critically injured.

Police hunting the terror network behind the Manchester Arena bombing have stopped passing information to the United States on the investigation as a major transatlantic row erupted over leaks of key evidence in the U.S., according to a report.

May's decision came because authorities have not been able to find the bomb making factory where Abedi's suicide vest was manufactured.

Britain raised its threat level from terrorism to "critical" late on Tuesday amid concerns that Abedi may have accomplices planning another attack. Abedi had told his parents that he wanted to visit the holy Saudi city of Mecca, so they returned his passport.

In addition, hundreds of troops have been deployed to guard key landmarks and possible targets, including Downing Street and Parliament, in order to reduce pressure on the police.

Mr McCaul said evidence so far suggests "we're not dealing with a lone wolf situation", adding: "There's a network - a cell of ISIS-inspired terrorists".

Officials are probing how often Abedi had traveled to Libya, which has seen an eruption of armed Islamist groups since dictator Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown and killed in 2011.
