BREAKING: 5000 Armed Soldiers Deployed- CRITICAL Terror Threat Issued



Up to 5,000 armed soldiers are being deployed amid fears that the Manchester suicide bomber had accomplices preparing further attacks, Theresa May has announced.

For the first time in 10 years, the Prime Minister raised the terror threat to the highest possible level, from severe to critical, meaning an attack is “expected imminently.”


“The threat level should be increased, for the time being, from severe to critical,” May said, adding that “a further attack may be imminent.”

Outlining the increased risk, May said, “It is a possibility we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to this attack.”

“We struggle to comprehend the warped and twisted mind that sees a room packed with young children not as a scene to cherish, but as an opportunity for carnage. But we can continue to resolve to thwart such attacks in future, to take on and defeat the ideology that often fuels this violence, and if there turn out to be others responsible for this attack, to seek them out and bring them to justice,” she said.


Raising the country’s threat level means that armed military personnel will replace police officers at public events such as sports matches and concerts, she said.

The Telegraph reports that this will be the first time since 2003 – when the Government reacted to a plot to bring down an airliner – that troops are deployed on the streets.

With the FA Cup final this weekend, Mrs May acted on the advice of the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre after chairing two meetings of the Cobra emergency committee.

Security will also be stepped up at major public events and terrorist targets such as railway stations and airports.

It is the first time Britain has been on maximum terrorist alert since 2007, when a blazing car loaded with gas canisters was driven into Glasgow Airport.

A 23-year-old man was arrested in Manchester in connection with the attack and was being questioned.

Salman Abedi, 22, was identified as the man who detonated an improvised explosive device at about 10:30 p.m. local time Monday, killing more than 20 people, some of them children, and injuring dozens more. At least 12 children under the age of 16 were injured. An 8-year-old girl was among the dead.

Intelligence experts believe the device detonated at a concert by the pop singer Ariana Grande at the Manchester Arena on Monday night was so sophisticated that Abedi must have either been given specialist training abroad or used a bomb made by a technician who has not yet been captured.

It emerged that Abedi had travelled to Libya, raising fears he had been trained there and posing questions for the security services on whether he should have been tracked.

Grande has a huge following among young girls and other children are understood to be among the dead. Twelve children were among 59 taken to hospital after the atrocity, for which ISIS has claimed responsibility.

Mrs May described the bombing as “one of the worst terrorist incidents we have ever experienced in the United Kingdom” and said it “stands out for its appalling, sickening cowardice – deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives”.

Fox reports that officials believe the device was packed with shrapnel, built to inflict as much human damage as possible, according to U.S. law enforcement sources. Manchester police said one of their priorities is to investigate whether the attacker acted alone or had some kind of support.

Around the United Kingdom and across Europe, the attack brought fear and mourning. At Buckingham Palace, Queen Elizabeth II marked a moment of silence along her husband Prince Philip as well as Prince Charles and his wife Camilla. In Rome, the lights of the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain were darkened.

While on a visit to the West Bank city of Bethlehem, President Donald Trump called the perpetrators “evil losers” and said “this wicked ideology must be obliterated.”

This is what happens when you have liberals running countries. Sad…
