Just going to do a quick rundown b/c I'm logging off soon. The info thus far:
-19 people confirmed dead & 59 people injured
-The explosion occurred just as a concert by the American pop star Ariana Grande was ending. This means such a bombing occurred in an arena with many young teenagers & children.
-Blast came from a shrapnel bomb filled with nuts and bolts. Whether from an abandoned backpack or a suicide bomber has yet to be confirmed, but suicide bomber seems to be what authorities are leaning towards.
Thoughts & prayers go out to those families & friends of the victims.
