A shopping centre in Manchester, England, was evacuated and witnesses said they heard a "big bang" on Tuesday, just hours after a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured 59 in the same area of the city.
Scores of people ran away from the centre, a Reuters witness said.
"There are people coming out holding hands," a Reuters photographer said.
Great Manchester Police would not comment when contacted for Reuters.
