Explosions At Ariana Grande's Concert In Manchester

Postby megzluvsmelc » 23 May 2017, 00:48

So I read on Facebook newsfeed that there was a couple of bombs in Manchester UK

Police confirmed that there were 2 bombs at Ariana Grande's concert at Manchester Arena:

Sadly news, here on Spain media is telling that the explosion was caused by 2 speakers, but media from UK is talking now about killed people.

It's obviously a terrorist attack, an explosion at a concert full of kids and gays is no coincidence. Jacques was there and thankfully he's fine

Horrific news :( I'm so shocked.

'Ariana Grande is inconsolable, "in hysterics" after learning at least 19 people were killed at her concert.

Sources in contact with the singer tell TMZ, Ariana is devastated that young people who came for a good time are now lying dead and injured.

We're told her next concert -- Thursday in London at the O2 Arena -- is now up in the air for 2 reasons. It may constitute a safety threat, but also, as one source put it, "She's in no condition to perform."'

Apparently, the security at the concert didn't check the fans' bags properly before they went inside.

Most of Ariana's fans are children. They just wanted to have a good night at her concert and now they couldn't. Feeling so sorry for the parents who had their children missing! :'(

This is absolutely horrifying. I can't even imagine how she must be feeling, she is so young, do you think she could recover from this? And why attack children? What a disgrace. Unfortunately this world is never going to be the same. :sad:

It's a shame you can't send your kids to a pop concert without fear of such an act being carried out.

The amount of lives this one disturbed person filled with hate has ruined will go far beyond just 22 and it has also etched fear in the minds of concert goers.

A very dark stamp has been put on Arianas history as an artist aswell such a shame for her.

RIP

If I'm not mistaking, Isis said they did it...

Such a tragedy, for everyone involved. For the victims. Their families and friends. For Ariana, I cannot imagine how she feels.

Apparently the rest of the tour has been postponed indefinitely, which is understandable.

I hope concert venues everywhere becomes even stricter with security from now on. There's absolutely no reason for anyone to bring any bags whatsoever to a concert, and the responsibility is fully on the security team that clearly didn't do a good enough job.

The bomber was outside the venue - just waited for everyone to be leaving.

The youngest victim was just 8 years old. This is absolutely horrific.

It's on every news channel and radio station and regular programming has been changed for this news story.

Absolutely heartbreaking.

I stand corrected but my point still stands. There should be enough security to discover these types of people.

I am utterly shocked and saddened by events over the last few hours.
Such a coward, whoever this person was to due to such a horrific crime and devastate so many lives and injure and shock them for the rest of their lives.

The way the music community, as well as the community in Manchester has come together is just amazing.
It's hard not to get upset and emotional about it, as so many of us are concert-goers here.

I know, myself, when I go to my next concert, that I will take a minute to remember the actions this horrible person has inflicted on us all and the lives that have been lost and changed forever.

Absolutely devastating. It's terrifying to think that these attacks can happen anywhere now. No one is safe.

My thoughts and prayers are for those who were affected by this terrible tragedy what a horrible world we're living in now and one of those killed was an 8 year old girl who was just going to see one of her favourite singers and she just wanted a good time with her mother and older sister but that was sadly cut tragically short :( #ManchesterAttack #Terroism #Rip
