Manchester Arena Bombing Victims

The Greater Manchester police have reported that at least 22 people have died, including some children, following an explosion Monday night at a concert featuring the U.S. singer Ariana Grande at Manchester Arena in England.

In a Facebook post, Greater Manchester Police released the following statement: "Emergency services are currently responding to reports of an explosion at Manchester Arena. There are a number of confirmed fatalities and others injured. Please AVOID the area as first responders work tirelessly at the scene. Details of a casualty bureau will follow as soon as available."

Greater Manchester Police tweeted that emergency services were responding to a "serious incident at Manchester Arena. Avoid the area. More details will follow as soon as available."

"Ariana is OK," a representative said. "We are further investigating what happened."

Witnesses reported a loud bang right as the concert finished.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said the Manchester blast was among the worst Britain has ever experienced.
