Manchester Bombing: Royals and community remember terror attack that killed 22

Manchester Bombing: Royals and community remember terror attack that killed 22

A Muslim man's "act of kindness" following the Manchester terror attack a year ago has been recognised in a series of art displays around the city.

Salman Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton of Libyan descent, blew himself up as fans were leaving Grande's concert at Manchester Arena on May 22, 2017.

Four days later, Grande announced she would organize a multi-artist benefit concert for the victims and the families affected by the attack.

The American singer Grande, who visited the injured in hospital in the wake of the bombing and returned two weeks later to host a fund-raising concert, wrote on Twitter: "Thinking of you all today and every day I love you with all of me and am sending you all of the light and warmth I have to offer on this challenging day".

They included Don't Look Back in Anger by Oasis, One Day Like This by Elbow and Never Forget by Take That.

As the Inquisitr reported last week, Ariana Grande recently opened up about the tragic events that occurred following her concert.

In a message on social media, the American singer wrote: "Thinking of you all today and every day".

Jack also recited words that Ariane Grande said in the aftermath of the tragedy a year ago.

Relatives of the 22 people who died and some of the survivors of the bomb were joined by the Duke of Cambridge and the Prime Minister at the service in Manchester Cathedral.

A minute's silence took place at 2.30pm and was marked across the country.

On the altar behind him were 22 candles - fashioned from the thousands left behind at the memorial in St Ann's Square previous year - each representing one of the young victims.

As the world watched, Manchester came together in a show of solidarity and hope after tragedy.

Bells will ring out across the city center at 10:31 mark the exact moment of the explosion previous year.
