Armed troops are to guard nuclear power plants in Scotland and other sensitive sites across the United Kingdom, as the police said they were now investigating a "network" linked to the Manchester bomber, writes The Herald.

Shortly after the attack, the suicide bomber was identified as Salman Abedi, 22.

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, Britain's top counterterrorism police officer, said authorities have dismantled a "large part" of the network around bomber Salman Abedi.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack, calling Abedi a "soldier of the caliphate".

US media outlets have been reporting details about the attack that British officials hadn't wanted to share yet, to help in their investigation.

In addition to the pitching miscues, the Mariners had all kinds of issues in the wet conditions, committing two fielding errors. In the eighth, the Athletics did enough to get Tanaka (5-4) out of the game. "I just underplayed it a little".

British officials were particularly angry over photos published by The New York Times showing remnants of a blue backpack which may have held the explosive, a 12-volt battery that apparently powered the device and a possible switch in the left hand of the alleged bomber that could have ignited it.

British Prime Minister Theresa May, arriving at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, said the countries' partnership on defence and security was built on trust, but "part of that trust is knowing that intelligence can be shared confidently".

After the deadliest attack in Britain since July 2005, police are hunting for accomplices whom they suspect helped Salman Abedi build the bomb that killed 22 people on Monday night in a crowded concert hall in the northern English city of Manchester. "There will be more arrests and there will be more searches", he said.

A senior Whitehall source said: "These images from inside the American system are clearly distressing to victims, their families and other members of the public".

On Tuesday, that brother was detained in Libya. Mohammed El-Hudarey, a friend of the landlord, said after Abedi moved out about six weeks ago there was a strong smell of chemicals and debris including metal rods and cut-up fabric.

Intelligence sources said Abedi was not on the Schengen Information System - from which the United Kingdom is exempt - or on a list of potential Islamists being tracked through Europe.

"I want to make one thing very clear to Jeremy Corbyn and to you, and it is that there can never, ever be an excuse for terrorism", she said at a summit of Group of Seven leaders in Sicily.
