Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull told the country's parliament the incident was a "brutal attack on young people everywhere".
He said: "This incident, this attack, is especially vile, especially criminal, especially horrific because it appears to have been deliberately directed at teenagers.
"This is an attack on innocents. Surely there is no crime more reprehensible than the murder of children.
"This is a direct and brutal attack on young people everywhere, on freedom everywhere."
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted: "Pained by the attack in Manchester. We strongly condemn it. Our thoughts are with the families of the deceased & prayers with the injured."
In Japan a government spokesman said: "If this is a terrorist attack, such abhorrent acts of terrorism cannot be justified for any reason, and Japan firmly condemns such an act of terrorism.
