Manchester Arena Attack 

Last night, an as-of-now an unidentified man denoted a homemade bomb at the Manchester Arena toward the end of an Ariana Grande concert there. 
Though the police know the identity of the man, they have not released his name: He was killed in the explosion, which is being treated as a suicide bombing and terror attack by police. 

At least 22 people are confirmed dead following the explosion and at least 59 more were injured, several critically. 

So far, only three victims have been identified: 18-year-old Georgina Bethany Callander, 8-year-old Saffie-Rose Roussos, and 26-year-old John Atkinson. 

About 21,000 people were at the concert when the explosion went off – eye witness accounts confirm madness after the denotation, with many screaming and a mad rush to exit the arena. Natalie Sully, a teen who was near the site of the explosion, told Good Morning America, “I looked to my right and there was just a decomposed body. All you could see was just flesh.”

Late last night, a rep for Ariana confirmed she was OK. Since then, it’s been reported she’s suspended the rest of her “Dangerous Woman” tour. Ariana issued one statement, via Twitter, saying she was “broken.” 

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was at the concert that night. I have absolutely no words for this tragedy.
