ISIL claims responsibility for deadly Manchester attack

The Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group has taken responsibility for Monday night’s attack at the Manchester Arena that killed 22 people, including children, and wounded 59 others.

“One of the soldiers of the Caliphate was able to place an explosive device within a gathering of the Crusaders in the city of Manchester,” the group said in a statement Tuesday.

Daesh did not publish a name or picture of the attacker, which they have previously done for some major attacks they claimed responsibility for.

A suicide bomber with an “improvised” explosion device targeted a concert arena in Manchester as thousands of young people streamed from the venue.
