 British police arrested two more suspects of Manchester attack

British police said they arrested two more people during raids Saturday over the Manchester concert bombing, as Prime Minister Theresa May announced a reduction in the country's threat level and of its anti-terror operation.

Censor.NET reports citing AFP via Yahoo!.

The two men, aged 20 and 22, were arrested in north Manchester early Saturday after police gained entry to an address using a controlled explosion, and a bomb disposal team was later involved in a raid in Moss Side, to the south of the city.

The arrests bring to 11 the number of suspects held in Britain over Monday's blast at a concert by U.S. pop idol Ariana Grande, in which 22 people died and 116 were injured, and for which the Islamic State group has claimed responsibility.

Police in Libya have detained the father and brother of 22-year-old bomber Salman Abedi.
