Hundreds of people, including young children, also gathered at a Glasgow vigil for the victims of the Manchester attack.

She was among two opening acts for Grande on the European leg of Grande's Dangerous Woman Tour.

Julie Dearing in Houston, Texas, has a boy and girl, a 13-year-old son not at all interested in concerts and an 11-year-old music lover who was, until she learned of the Manchester attack.

Some concert-goers said security was haphazard before the show, with some people being searched and others allowed inside unhindered. The "Problem" singer flew to Florida on Tuesday to spend time with her family, the Daily Mail website reported.

"That was her first concert", Dearing said.

Members of the public attend a candlelit vigil at Albert Square in Manchester to honour the victims of Monday night's deadly attack.

"And we can provide reassurance, but we can only do that, I think, if we are honest with our audience and with children. The spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain is far mightier than the sick plots of depraved terrorists, that is why the terrorists will never win and we will prevail". "What should have been a superb evening is now just disgusting".

"The whole nation has been shocked by the death and injury in Manchester last night of so many people, adults and children, who had just been enjoying a concert", Queen Elizabeth II said in a statement, calling the attack an "act of barbarity". His wife, Danielle Anderson, said that she was against his decision to cancel but let it stand. He also called out London mayor Sadiq Khan for merely stating "London is united with Manchester" but not condemning the Islamic State, who've claimed responsibility for the bomb.

UK PM May says threat level raised to "critical" after Manchester attack
British counter-terrorism police have said they are making on average an arrest every day in connection with suspected terrorism. Dozens of parents frantically searched for their children, posting photos and pleading for information on social media.

Trump sends to Congress $4.1 trillion budget plan
Numerous voters who propelled Trump into the presidency last November would see significantly less from the federal government. It proposes new restrictions on government-subsidized crop insurance, a program that is particular favorite of grain farmers.

President Zuma congratulates the President of Iran on his election victory
Iran's economy was not in good shape when Rouhani came to power; even in 2015, the growth rate was -1.6 percent. Compounding the threat posed by USA withdrawal from the nuclear deal, Iran is now beset by uncertainty.

On Tuesday morning, upset friends and relatives were arriving at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on the advice of police to those who needed assistance after the attack.

"CPD is closely monitoring the incident in Manchester and we are in real-time communication with our federal partners", CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement.

"This wicked ideology must be obliterated".

After Manchester, Grande was due to perform in London on Thursday and Friday, and later at venues elsewhere in Europe, including Belgium, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and France, with concerts in Latin America and Asia to follow. It is unclear whether Grande and BIA will suspend or cancel future performances, as Billboard reports.

Three people have been identified as having been killed in last night's attack, which is being treated as a terrorist attack until Manchester police can rule otherwise.

Ms May says another attack could be imminent in the wake of the Manchester concert suicide attack. The city was hit by a huge Irish Republican Army bomb in 1996 that leveled a swath of the city center.

Of the many heart-wrenching videos that went viral Tuesday is one short one posted on Twitter by Ellie Cheetham.
