Mourners hold memorials for victims killed in Manchester explosion

On Monday, a deadly explosion at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, killed at least 22 and left close to 60 injured.

The 22-year-old man who detonated a nail bomb at the concert has been identified as Salaman Abedi. Militant jihadist organization ISIS has claimed responsibility for the horrific attack.

It has been hours since the incident and residents of Manchester have begun filling the streets to show their support and respect for the victims killed in the attack.

Makeshift memorials and vigils can be found near St. Ann’s Square. People have left bouquets and handwritten notes to express their love and support. On Tuesday, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh held a moment of silence at Buckingham Palace for the victims of the Manchester attack.
