- Story Text: A small group led by members of Muslim advocacy group, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), on Tuesday (May 23), honored the victims of the suicide bomb attack in Manchester, England.
The group laid a wreath and offered prayers at the British embassy in Washington, D.C.
British police on Tuesday identified the suicide bomber who killed 22 people, including children, in an attack on a crowded concert hall in Manchester, and said they were trying to establish whether he had acted alone or with help from others.
The man suspected of carrying out Britain's deadliest bombing in nearly 12 years was named as Salman Abedi, aged 22, but police declined to give further details about him.
U.S. security sources, citing British intelligence officials, said he was born in Manchester in 1994 to parents of Libyan origin. He is believed to have traveled by train from London before the attack, they said.
