    Nineteen people have been killed and about 50 injured in a suspected terror attack at Manchester Arena.

    The blast happened at about 22:35 BST on Monday following a pop concert by the US singer Ariana Grande.

    The cause is unknown but PM Theresa May said her thoughts were with those affected by "what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack".

    British Transport Police said the explosion was in the arena's foyer.

    BBC Home Affairs Correspondent Daniel Sandford said senior counter-terrorism officers were assembling in London and liaising with the Home Office.

    Unconfirmed reports from two unnamed US officials suggested the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber.

    The BBC's Tim Ashburner, who is at the scene, spoke to some volunteer paramedics who treated the injured for "shrapnel-like injuries".

    It's a result of playing with terrorists in strange games.

    Let us not get to fast into conclusions. We will soon find some answer when England have done some investigation. Beside that all the best to England.

    But Brits do their conclusions.

    I think it is just internal British games.
