"Due to the tragic events in Manchester the Dangerous Woman tour with Ariana Grande has been suspended until we can further assess the situation and pay our proper respects to those lost", a statement said.

The developments came as the police investigation was hit by further leaks to the USA media, with the New York Times releasing crime scene photos appearing to show bomb fragments and the backpack used to hide the explosive.

The president criticised the leaks and vowed to investigate.

Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to raise United Kingdom concerns when she meets US President Donald Trump at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels on Thursday.

May said the national threat level from terrorism remains at critical - the highest level, meaning that another attack may be imminent.

It's understood all victims have now been identified - while medics say 20 of the 64 people who were injured after the Ariana Grande concert are in a critical condition.

Mohammed Fadl, a spokesman for Libyan expatriates in Manchester, said Salman's family is well known in the community, especially his elder brother Ismail, but said Salman "was not socially involved in the community activities".

Mrs May will chair a fourth meeting of the Government's Cobra emergency committee since the Manchester attack, on Thursday morning, Downing Street said.

"Parents expressed fears of this danger, and agreed to take measures to help youths get more integrated in the community while making sure that future visits to Libya take place as families, and not as individuals", Fadl said.

In an update on the investigation, Mr Hopkins said: "I want to reassure people that the arrests that we have made are significant, and initial searches of premises have revealed items that we believe are very important to the investigation".

U.S. entertainer Ariana Grande has suspended her Dangerous Woman tour following the attack on her Manchester show which killed 22 people.

Meanwhile, a man and a woman detained in the operation have since been released, police said.

There were reports that members of the public reported Abedi to the anti-terrorism hotline several years ago.

Focus reported that German authorities are now trying to determine whether Abedi had contact with Islamic extremists in Germany before flying to Manchester last week.

Earlier, interior minister Amber Rudd said the bomber, Salman Abedi, had recently returned from Libya.

He and another of his sons, Hashim, were taken into custody Wednesday in the Libyan city of Tripoli.

Dodds and Katz reported from London.
