#PrayForManchester: Football World reacts as 19 killed in Suspected UK Terror Attack

At least 19 people have bern confirmed killed in a suspected terror attack in Manchester Arena, late on Monday night, with over 50 wounded and the football world has begun to mourn the tragic loss of life.
The Manchester Arena is in the city center, two miles north of Manchester United‘s Old Trafford and two miles west of Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in a statement said that it is treating the incident as a terrorist attack, and warned the public to avoid the area.
Just before 22:35 on Monday May 22, 2017, police were called to reports of an explosion at Manchester Arena,” the GMP statement reads.
So far 19 people have been confirmed dead, with around 50 others injured. This is currently being treated as a terrorist incident until police know otherwise.”
 UK Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the incident and said the government is working to establish the full details of what is being treated by the police as an appalling terrorist attack. She sends condolences to the families of those who have been affected.

All political parties will suspend campaigning ahead of next month’s General Election for what will be a period of national mourning.
