Ariana Grande Responds After Deadly Manchester Arena Bombing

Shared from NBCnews.com

Pop singer Ariana Grande said she felt “broken” after a suicide attack late Monday killed at least 22 people — including some children — and wounded another 59 after her packed concert in Britain’s Manchester Arena.

“From the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words,” tweeted Grande, who was unharmed by the blast, to her more than 45 million followers.

Her manager, Scooter Braun, also posted condolences to the victims on social media and said “tonight, our hearts are broken.”

The culprit behind the bombing was killed in the attack after detonating the improvised explosive device, authorities said. He was identified Tuesday as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, who sources told NBC News had a British passport. The suspect set off the bomb near one of the venue’s exits as the predominantly younger crowd let out of the arena around 10:30 p.m. local time.


Other artists in the pop world shared their sympathies with the victims, and Miley Cyrus said on Instagram that she was “wishing I could give my friend @ArianaGrande a great big hug right now.”
