Ariana Grande concert explosions: ‘Number of confirmed fatalities,’ police say


Fox News:

Explosions at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England caused a “number of confirmed fatalities and others injured,” police said late Monday.

“Two loud bangs” were reported at approximately 10:45 p.m., just after the concert had finished. The cause of the blasts was not immediately confirmed.

Spokesman Joseph Carozza said Grande, who was performing at the arena as part of her “Dangerous Woman” world tour, was “okay” and added, “we are further investigating what happened.”

Witnesses described panic as concertgoers rushed to get out of the arena. Video from inside the arena showed people screaming as they made their way out amid a sea of pink balloons. Some on social media initially suggested that some of the ballons had burst, making a loud noise like a bomb.

Concertgoer Sasina Akhtar told the Manchester Evening News that Grande had just finished her last song when “there was an explosion behind us at the back of the arena. We saw young girls with blood on them, everyone was screaming and people were running. There was lots of smoke.”

David Richardson, who attended the show with his 13-year-old daughter, told the MEN that he heard two explosions just after the show.

“It was about 40 feet behind us near one of the exits. We just thought it was people messing about then it happened again. Another explosion sounded. Then we saw the smoke. Everyone just fled.”

Majid Khan, 22, said she heard a “huge bomb-like bang that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena.”

“Everyone was in a huge state of panic, calling each other as some had gone to the toilet whilst this had gone off, so it was just extremely disturbing for everyone there.”

Another witness, Oliver Jones, 17, told Sky News he was in the bathroom when he heard “a loud bang.”

“The bang echoed around the foyer of the arena and people started to run,” Jones said. “I (saw) people running and screaming towards one direction and then many were turning around to run back the other way. Security was running out as well as the fans and concert goers.”

Britons are sacrificing their own children to Satan the god of islam. And apparently enjoying it because they allow it to happen over and over and over again.

@UK sucks, #1:

Has anyone ever told you that you’re a complete idiot?

@UK sucks: It isnt all Brits, they voted to boot the suicidal EU, When they begin mass deportations of the invaders or if is yet to see. Females cannot walk the streets of Paris, Italy has begun deportations, Germany is taking citizens houses for refugee housing, Sweden is a total mess, Poland and Hungary will not accept any, at any rate the invasion has gone too far.


Has anyone told you that you’re a complete idiot?

Just all of us have told you that. Do you think they were targeting young muslim girls?
They need to drive all the invaders out of Europe. 19 young girls dead and that number is expected to rise. How many dead will it take make you wake the hell up, how many children put into dough mixers, how many rapes?

@kitt, #4:

Why would anyone assume none of the kids at the concert were Muslim? This was in Manchester. The children of Muslim families have been born there and have grown up there. Most are well integrated, and perfectly OK with the fact that not everyone is the same. Generally speaking, it’s adults that tend to be screwed up. The kids get along, and would be OK if their screwed up elders didn’t screw them up.

You’ve got good people and you’ve got bad people. You’ve got normal people and you’ve got hate-filled, homicidal psychos. Religion isn’t the determining factor. Thinking that it is isn’t part of the solution.

ArianaGrande is of the cult of Hollywood pro-refugee, pro-Muslim and Islam, anti-Trump, anti-American, Women’s March organizer and far left delusional liberal.
Ironic that her concert was ground zero.
Do you think it will wake her up?
Reality will mug her?
Not so far.
Her Tweet reads:

from the bottom of my heart, i am so sorry. I don’t have words.

Maybe she’ll go lick a few doughnuts until she feels better.
Those fans are DEAD.
More of them are injured.
All of them are traumatized.

Ariana Grande is only 23 years old. She rejects institutionalized discrimination against gay people, and has campaigned against online bullying. That seems to be about the extent of her politics. She’s raised a lot of money doing concerts and promotions for charity. She probably is brokenhearted about what happened. A person would have to be a completely insensitive bastard not to be.

@Greg: Most well, it only takes a few, how many did it take in a gay bar in Florida? He was raised in the States. They need to be kept in their own culture, our culture is not compatible. Behaving civilized does not seem compatible for so many that have invaded EU. They have 0 sympathy from me, most are young men of fighting age, leaving behind women and children to fend for themselves. The culture of the countries they have invaded is being murdered, look and see how many of the EU leaders have kids, they dont give a damn for the next generation or passing on the culture. They live with personal protection.
Nan is right this singer is alt left kookoo hating something she cant yet comprehend.
Piles of teddy bears flowers and burning candles will not bring back their safety.Anyone who says these bombings are just now part of life in big cities should be punched in the throat.
I isnt the Amish or Baptists bombing, it is Islamists.

@Nanny G: NannyState
go stick a steely dan up where the sun don’t shine.
(There, that’s a perverted response in your style.)

@Greg: I find it amazing how you liberals make excuses for gutless terrorists.

If they DID kill any Muslims, they were “bad” Muslims because they were at a concert. What does it matter? Terrorism is terrorism and it must be stamped out. Making excuses, as you and your previous administration made a career of doing will never solve anything.

Enjoy more of the legacy of Obama.

@Nanny G: Pure Bullshit Nan Ariana Grande is in NO WAY responsible for this cowardly act.
Semper Fi

Kitt Are you blaming this beautiful young singer?–I SURE HOPE NOT.

@kitt, #8:

Nan is right this singer is alt left kookoo hating something she cant yet comprehend.

Who does she hate? I seem to have missed that. The kid is a pop singer and entertainer. So far as I know, she’s never showed any signs of hating anybody.

Young people aren’t responsible for the screwed up state of the world. They just got here. A lot of them haven’t even had time to fully realize yet what a godawful mess their elders have created.

Ariana Grande has canceled her world concert tour.

@Greg: Just a little doughnut licking incident
I dont want to buy a doughnut anyone else licked she is something.
No she is not to blame for Islam.
@Richard Wheeler: She is only beautiful on the exterior. Displays no appreciation for what sacrifices vets and others made so we can consume so freely.
