We attend music concerts to enjoy some awesome moments and have a great time. The same was the case with 20,000 people who went to attend the concert of popular American singer Ariana Grande; however, for 19 of them, it became their last music concert.
Yes, 19 were killed and 50 were left injured in the suspected terrorist attack which took place at 10:30 pm on Monday night during the concert which took place in Manchester. The concert, under Grande’s “The Dangerous Woman Tour”, was about to finish when the bomb exploded.
All of a sudden, there was a situation of chaos and panic; everybody was screaming and running out of Manchester Arena. Ambulances and bomb disposal squads reached the spot immediately.
The reason of the blast is unknown but the British PM Theresa May has said that it will be considered as a terror attack till complete details are found out.
The team of singer Ariana Grande confirmed that the singer is safe; she also expressed her sorrow on Twitter and wrote, “broken. from the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.”
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.
