Manchester Arena bomber’s brother to appear in court charged with murder

North of England Correspondent

Greater Manchester Police have been waiting for two years to bring Hashem Abedi back to the UK.

Earlier today he was handed over to them by the Libyan authorities near Tripoli.

Tonight he is in custody in a London police station and will appear in court tomorrow.

Abedi left the UK in the days before his older brother Salman carried out his suicide attack which killed 22 people and injured hundreds more in May 2017.
