Ramadan now works as the administrative manager of Tripoli's Central Security force.

"He came right up to the auto window and said that he was going to do this and do that", Locke recalled.

"Kelly really was the happiest she has ever been and we had so many things planned together". Abedi had been in Libya in the weeks before the attack, and German magazine Focus, citing unnamed federal security source, reported that he passed through Duesseldorf airport four days before the bombing.

British counter-terror agencies missed several chances to stop Salman Abedi before he carried out the Manchester Arena bombing, it has emerged. The goal of the trip remains unknown.

"The British police have been very clear that they want to control the flow of information in order to protect the operational integrity, the element of surprise, so it is irritating if it gets released from other sources, and I have been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again", Rudd said on BBC Radio 4's "Today" program. Another brother, Ismail, was taken into police custody in Manchester on Tuesday.

Three days before he detonated a bomb that killed 22 people at a Manchester concert venue, police believe Abedi withdrew 250 pounds ($324) from an ATM before he went shopping in the center around 1900 GMT (3.00 p.m. ET) in the evening, the broadcaster said.

Home searches across Manchester have uncovered important items for the investigation into the concert bombing that left 22 people dead, Manchester's police chief announced Thursday. Rudd said Britain was making good progress with internet firms on this but more could be done. Neighbors recalled him as a tall, thin young man who often wore traditional Islamic dress and did not talk much.

"I wish I could say that Georgina is one of the last to die in this way but unless our government opens its eyes we know we are only another in a long line of parents on a list that continues to grow", the family said in a statement released through Greater Manchester Police.

The red-brick terrace house the Abedi family lived in the Whalley Range suburb of Manchester remained cordoned off by police Wednesday as the investigation continued.

"I would see him in the garden or in the auto. He was pretty anti-social", said neighbor Nisa Akhtar.

The 22 victims in Manchester included an eight-year-old girl, several teenage girls, a 28-year-old man and a Polish couple who had come to collect their daughters. "He acted by himself and represents only himself", he said.

As Fadil spoke, a auto drove by the mosque and a man leaned out the window and shouted: "Shut it down".

"We are not terrorists. We are doctors", Fadil said. "He had difficulties adjusting to European lifestyle". They eventually sought political asylum in Britain and settled in Manchester's sizable Libyan community.

The elder Abedi denied that his son was responsible for the attack and any links to terrorist groups.

Minister Gerard Collomb said Wednesday on BFM television that British and French intelligence have information that Abedi had been to Syria.

Abedi's father has said his son is innocent.

The country's senior anti-terror police officer said there were "gaps in our knowledge" about Abedi which had led to the increased threat level.

British police are rushing to uncover the network thought to have helped Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi in the attack on the Ariana Grande concert. They say he returned to Britain from Libya on May 18, and likely completed assembling his bomb at a rented apartment in central Manchester.

"The flat is highly relevant as a location which we believe may be the final assembly place for the device". "This is not us".
