Ariana Grande Suspends Tour Dates After Manchester Attack

"We will do all we can to protect the capital that we serve at this unsettling time", said Commander Jane Connors, who leads the London policing operation.

British Prime Minister Theresa May said earlier she would tell Trump that intelligence shared between their two countries had to remain secure, in a rare public show of dissatisfaction with Britain's closest security ally.

Among the 22 killed and 64 injured were several children, who had gone to see their favourite American pop singer, Ariana Grande.

She will press for members to increase defence spending in line with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitments, and said she would cut short the next leg of her trip to Sicily, where the Group of Seven major powers will hold a two-day meeting, and instead leave on Friday.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, while Britain's official terror alert was raised to "critical", and hundreds of soldiers were deployed on Wednesday to guard key London sites, including London's Houses of Parliament.

The two are meeting at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

British security forces worked Wednesday to wrap up a family based terrorist ring, as the father and brother of the British-born suicide bomber were arrested in the father's native Libya.

Following the announcement that her tour was postponed, the 23 year-old star's manager Scooter Braun said "fear can not rule the day".

Mrs May will head to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels and thank the Western military alliance for its support following the suicide bombing attack in Manchester.

The leaks to American media began hours after the bombing, when multiple news outlets reported the suspect's name based on leaks from USA officials briefed by their British counterparts.

Manchester's mayor, Andy Burnham, told the BBC he had raised concerns about the leaks with the U.S. ambassador, while Labour lawmaker Yvette Cooper said she was "very troubled" by those occurring in the middle of an investigation where public safety may be at risk. She said he had been known to security forces "up to a point". But shortly after the interior minister complained, The New York Times newspaper again scooped British authorities and other media by publishing photographs from the scene of remnants of the bomb. Our "intelligence cooperation with the United States is unprecedented", he added. "I cant say I really liked the man". Her French counterpart Gerard Collomb said the man had links with ISIS and had probably visited Syria as well.

"I think it's pretty disgusting", said Scott Lightfoot, a Manchester resident, speaking outside a train station in the city.
