Jailed terrorist admits involvement in Manchester Arena bombing for first time

Jailed terrorist Hashem Abedi has admitted for the first time his involvement in planning the Manchester Arena bombing which killed 22 people, a public inquiry has heard. Abedi, 23, made the admission in prison last month when he was visited by two members of the inquiry’s legal team to be interviewed as part of the probe into the atrocity on May 22 2017. The brother of suicide bomber Salman Abedi, 22, had pleaded not guilty earlier this year to 22 counts of murder, attempted murder and plotting to cause an explosion likely to endanger life.
