Manchester terrorist’s brother in custody in the UK charged over 2017 attack

Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins confirms the extradition and arrest of Hashim Abedi, who faces charges over his alleged role in the 2017 Manchester Arena attack.

Hashem Abedi landed at an unspecified London airport on Wednesday, escorted by British police officers, after months of work to ensure his extradition from Tripoli.

Abedi fled the UK in the days before his older brother Salman carried out his suicide bombing as thousands of pop music fans left the Ariana Grande concert.
