At least 19 people have been killed and 50 others were injured at an Ariana Grande concert that was held in Manchester, England on Monday. It is suspected that a suicide bomber was responsible for the tragedy.
Ariana has tweeted a heartfelt apology.

Prime Minister Theresa May said that they are treating the incident as a terrorist attack, which would make it the deadliest militant assault on Britain since 2005.
The concert was being held in an arena that holds close to 21,000 people, and the explosion reportedly happened at the end of the show around 10:30 PM. Parents who were separated from their children were sent to a nearby Holiday Inn where people were being provided with drinks and phone charges so that they could attempt to get in contact with their family members.
The terrorist level in the area has been set at “severe” for a couple months, meaning that an attack risk was “highly likely.”
