- Story Text: Religious ministers held a prayer service on Tuesday (May 23) on the side of the road close to where a suicide bomber claimed the lives of 22 people in Manchester, England.
The bomb attack targeted a concert held in the city's largest indoor arena on Monday (May 22) night.
Led by the Dean of the city's cathedral, Rogers Govender, people gathered on the street corner to pray together.
Dean Govender described the attack as an "absolute tragedy, an absolute atrocity".
Canon David Holgate, also from the cathedral, said: "We weep with all who are broken, hurt and bereaved."
A number of people were seriously wounded and over a dozen children were hospitalised after the suicide bomb attack, which killed 22 people.
