Manchester Arena bomber's brother admits he helped carry out attack to support ISIS

THE Manchester Arena bomber’s brother admits he helped him carry out the atrocity to support ISIS.

It is the first time a connection to the terror group has been made by Hashem Abedi or brother Salman, who blew himself up in the 2017 attack.

Hashem, 23, was convicted of 22 murders for helping his brother build the bomb.

He did not give evidence and was jailed for 55 years.

While in prison in October, he was asked by Nick de la Poer QC, a barrister for the Arena bombing inquiry team: “What actions have you taken to support Islamic State?”

He replied: “The Manchester attack.”

He also handed over a written statement said to represent pro-IS propaganda.

Paul Greaney QC said: "It sets out his motivations for having engaged in the attack. To put it in simple terms it represents pro-Islamic state propaganda."

The inquiry continues.
