    There has just been an explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester and some 19 people were killed and 50 people were injured. My condolences to those that were killed and their families. They are still investigating the cause of the explosion.

    this is an ongoing issue, there is another at a hospital but while you condolences are welcome it would be better to wait because casualties are still coming in. It's more horrible than you can imagine, most of those at the concert were young people and children.

    A lot of mentally sick and twisted people out there in the world. Nothing is ever gained from acts like this.

    this breaks my heart when children are victims. professionals in this field have said terrorists will go after schools and children...they always do.

    I just heard they sourced the explosion. My comments on the matter are not suitable for this forum.

    The death count is now at 22 and 59 people were injured. They're saying it was a suicide bombing.

    Thanks for the explanation. I haven't heard that turn of phrase before.

    I said you were premature, the bomber has been named, as has some of the victims. We knew last night that there were 22 dead so far, many of the injuries are such that the death toll may rise. It was a suicide bomber but the bomb was packed with metal.

    Thank you Brian, it means a lot.

    I'm hurting on the inside.
    The girl in this photo looks just like my daughter.
    What unbelievable misery. Stay strong, Manchester.
