Manchester, England - Police identified 22-year-old Salman Abedi (click here) as the suspected suicide bomber who detonated bombs as throngs of teenagers poured out of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester that killed 22 people....

The number 22 has no particular meaning here except perhaps the date. There is no way the suicide bomber would be able to pre-destine the deaths of 22 people with his bomb. The fact Abedi was 22 may have been the determining factor in the date he decided to kill.

...Greater Manchester Chief Constable Ian Hopkins named the suspect Tuesday but said that the man's identity had not been yet confirmed by a coroner.

The blast marked the deadliest terror attack on British soil since the 2005 London bombings. Hundreds of residents remembered the newest victims during a Tuesday evening vigil.

A powerful explosion shook part of the cavernous Manchester Arena late Monday as concertgoers streamed out following the American pop star's last song.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack but offered no evidence.

The majority of Daesh recruits are young people in their 20s or 30s. It is a focus on these young hearts and minds by Daesh. It is easier to demoralize younger people than those older. Daesh is not interested in a singular type of soldier for the caliphate. Daesh accepts all comers as a charismatic movement.
