An extraordinary picture of the family of Manchester Arena bomber Salman Abedi has emerged tonight, as his father who had Al-Qaeda links and his younger brother were arrested in Tripoli.How could anyone have been suspicious of such a warm, loving, peaceful family? The blood of those killed and wounded in Manchester is on the hands of whoever let this nest of vipers into Britain. Sadly, this is only the tip of the iceberg, many more such lie in wait.
The mass-murderer - who apparently had links to the 'Man in the Hat' Brussels bomber - had only just returned from a three-week trip to war-torn Libya before launching his horrifying attack, friends said.
That revelation came as his father, Ramadan, was arrested by masked gunmen in Tripoli this evening.
Abedi's younger brother Hashem has also been arrested in Tripoli, Libya, on suspicion of having links to the ISIS who claimed responsibility for Monday night's atrocity.
He was 'aware of all the details' of his plans, a Libyan security force said. Hashem had been 'under surveillance for a month and a half' and 'investigation teams supplied intelligence that he was planning a terrorist attack in the capital Tripoli'.
Salman's older brother Ismail, 23, was arrested yesterday in Chorlton, south Manchester.
