22 people including children injuring were killed and 59 injured in a suicide bomber’s attack in Ariana Grande pop concert in Manchester, UK.
The Islamic State (aka ISIS, Daesh, Caliphate) claimed responsibility for the attack :
With Allah’s grace and support, a soldier of the Khilafah [Caliphate] managed to place explosive devices in the midst of the gatherings of the Crusaders in the British city of Manchester, in revenge for Allah’s religion, in an endeavour to terrorize the mushrikin [polytheists, identified as Christians], and in response to their transgressions against the lands of the Muslims. The explosive devices were detonated in the shameless concert arena, resulting in 30 Crusaders being killed and 70 others being wounded. And what comes next will be more severe on the worshippers of the Cross and their allies, by Allah’s permission. And all praise’s due to Allah, Lord of the creation.
Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued on May 22, 2017 the following statement on the “apparent terrorist attack” in Manchester:
I was devastated when I heard about the innocent victims who were killed or injured at the Ariana Grande concert tonight in Manchester – many of them far too young.
On behalf of all Canadians, our deepest condolences go out to the families and friends of those who were killed. We also wish a speedy recovery to everyone who was injured.
Canada and the United Kingdom are the closest of friends, and we stand together as a people in this most tragic of circumstances.
With our allies and partners, we will continue to counter such senseless acts and to fight terrorism in its many forms. We will do all that we can to assist British authorities in bringing those responsible to justice.
Our hearts are with the people of the United Kingdom tonight, and we mourn with them the loss of so many innocent victims.
