Tonight the world is in a state of shock following what is being reported as terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.
The bomb is said to have gone off in the foyer of the Manchester Arena after the singer performed the last song of the evening on the sold-out stop of her ‘Dangerous Woman World Tour.’
While reps for the 23-year-old have confirmed that she was uninjured, a number fans in attendance are not.
According to police, 19 are confirmed dead and 59 injured.
[UPDATED: Manchester police confirm that the death toll has risen to 22. Fatalities include children.]
The affected were in the process of leaving the venue when the alleged suicide bomber struck.
Moments ago, a clearly shaken Grande released the following statement on Twitter…
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words.
