Sister of Manchester Bomber: He Wanted Revenge for Killing of Muslim Children


In Britain, an eighth arrest has been made in connection to Monday’s suicide bombing in Manchester that killed 22 people. This comes as investigators are attempting to piece together the recent whereabouts of the suspected bomber, Salman Abedi, who died in the blast. Authorities believe the Manchester-born man was recently in Libya and then traveled back to Britain via Turkey and Germany. Abedi’s sister said she believed he carried out the bombings as revenge for the wars in the Middle East. She said, “I think he saw children—Muslim children—dying everywhere, and wanted revenge.”
