Britain raises terror alert to highest level after Manchester attack - UPI.com
UPI reports: "The British government raised its terror threat alert to its highest level on Tuesday, following the deadly attack on an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. British Prime Minister Theresa May announced the heightened alert -- from 'severe' to 'critical' -- which indicates that another terrorist attack could be imminent. [...] The elevation allows British officials to deploy armed forces to secure potential target areas and support police officers. Earlier Tuesday, the Islamic State claimed responsibility for the bombing that killed 22 people and injured 59. Officials said several school-age children were among them."

Comment: What a terrible attack, 22 killed at a concert by a suicide bomber. One reporter on MSM news seemed to want to stress that despite the Islamic State taking credit for the attack, they have no direct proof. Really? Who else is deploying suicide bombers these days, Basque separatists?
