LONDON (Reuters) - British police on Saturday released a photograph of Salman Abedi on the night he killed 22 people in a suicide bomb attack in Manchester and said they believed an apartment in the city centre was where he put together his device.

 

"We know one of the last places Abedi went was the city centre flat and from there he left to make his way to the Manchester Arena," Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins and Neil Basu, Senior National Coordinator UK Counter Terrorism Policing said in a joint statement.

"The flat is highly relevant as a location which we believe may be the final assembly place for the device."

 

Hopkins and Basu said they had gathered significant information about Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton born to Libyan parents, how his bomb was built, his associates, finances, the places he had been and the wider conspiracy.

 

However, police needed any information the public might have about his movements from May 18 when he returned to Britain.

 

They said the investigation was not slowing, with some 1,000 officers involved, and the priority was to determine if more people were involved in planning the attack.

This is a quote from a UK newspaper.....

It’s reported that Abedi’s finances are a major “theme” of the investigation amid concerns that terrorists could exploit the welfare system to finance plots.

He received at least £7,000 after starting a business administration degree at the University of Salford, before dropping out.

A former detective told the paper jihadis are enrolling at university to collect loans “often with no intention of turning up”.

 

When is the British Government going to stop pussy footing around with these heinous poor excuses for Human Beings, 

All too often it comes out in the aftermath of an attack that the perpertrator was "known" to the authorities, or had been under surveillance at a previous time.  Another 22 young lives lost for the possible sake of political correctness, or the worry of undermining someone's so called "Human Rights".

Sorry if my post appears to be a rant, but i despair at the apparent ineptness of a so called intelligence network that appears to have its hands tied by bureaucracy......:sad:
