In a supposed ISIS threat video, a terrorist tells the world: “This is only the beginning.” The video only emerged in the hours after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena on May 22. The man in the video holds up a placard saying, “Manchester 2017-05-22.” He then says, “Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar.”
Earlier, the man says:
In the name of Allah the merciful, the grateful, this is only the beginning. The lions of the Islamic State are beginning to attack all the crusaders. Allahu akbar. Allahu akbar.
To be clear, the video has not been confirmed as being authentic.
The suspect in the Manchester Arena bombing has been named as Salman Abedi. Abedi is thought to have detonated a suicide bomb just outside the arena as the concert ended. In response, Trump called the perpetrators “evil losers” while Ariana Grande has announced that she is suspending her world tour, according to TMZ.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.
While police and anti-terror cops are still on the hunt for more suspects in the Fallowfield neighborhood of Manchester.
