An eight-year-old girl was among the 22 people killed by a suicide bomber after an Ariana Grande concert at the venue last night.

United Kingdom police have confirmed the attack to be an act of terror performed by one person, who died after detonating an explosive device. A 23-year-old man was arrested Tuesday in south Manchester in connection with the bombing.

A suspected terrorist attack struck Manchester, England Monday evening on the four year anniversary of the Jihadist murder of British soldier Lee Rigby in nearby Woolich, England.

Callander was a huge fan of the singer, and had met Ariana two years ago.
