The suspect in Monday's deadly at an Ariana Grande concert has been identified as Salman Abedi, 22, a Briton of Libyan descent, who lived near the Manchester Arena. The Greater Manchester Police announced at a press conference this morning that they believe Abedi, detonated an explosive device just outside the Arena as concertgoers were exiting. The blast killed 22 people and wounded 59 others, including many children. Abedi also died at the scene.
Authorities are currently investigating whether the bomber was part of a wider network. This morning, the Greater Manchester Police tweeted that a 23-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the attack.The mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, said the city will hold a vigil for the victims tonight at Albert Square in Manchester.

English Prime Minister Theresa May said in a statement that the people of Manchester had fallen victim to a “callous terrorist attack,” while American President Donald Trump called the bombers “evil losers.” Grande herself was not injured physically, but was obviously emotionally distraught, Tweeting that she was “broken.” Many artists like Lorde, Harry Styles, Taylor Swift and Hayley Kiyoko sent their support to Grande and Manchester.

New Issue of ‘Batman’ Will Explore His Catholic Upbringing & Why He’s Not a Christian Anymore

The recent run of Batman comics by red-hot comic book writer Tom King has really leaned into Batman’s human side, exploring his loneliness, mental health and doomed romantic life more profoundly than any in recent memory. And now, it appears, the series is going to tackle yet another of the Dark Knight’s all-too-human experiences: lost faith.In a preview of an upcoming issue illustrated by Lee Weeks and released to Inverse, Bruce Wayne reveals that his father raised him as a Christian. Wayne’s father, as you may be aware, is no longer in the picture, and when he died, he took Bruce’s fledgling faith with him.
