Manchester attack probe: 16 people in detention

A total of 16 people are in detention in Britain and Libya over the May 22 suicide bombing at a pop concert in the English city of Manchester by a British-born man of Libyan origin.

A teenage boy and a woman arrested by British police this week have since been released without charge, leaving 14 in British custody.

In Libya, the father and brother of the bomber, Salman Abedi, are also in detention.

Abedi reportedly returned from Libya only a few days before the attack which killed 22 people, including seven children under 18, but police are still trying to establish the extent of his wider network.
