UK Prime Minister Theresa May is reportedly expected to raise concerns with Trump over the leaks.

But by late Thursday evening, police said they had resumed intelligence sharing after "fresh assurances".

"The alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling".

Trump said he's asking the DOJ and other agencies to "launch a complete review of this matter" and said that "if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law".

The pictures published by the New York Times included remains of the bomb and of the rucksack carried by the suicide bomber, and showed blood stains amid the wreckage.

While Abedi's family was well-known in Manchester, Abedi himself did not attend many gatherings, Fadl said. Abedi's father was allegedly a member of the al-Qaida-backed Libyan Islamic Fighting group in the 1990s - a claim he denies. May said at the time Britain would continue to share information with Washington.

On Wednesday, a series of raids were executed across Manchester, Wigan and Nuneaton, Warwickshire, while relatives of bomber Salman Abedi were detained in Libya.

German police said Abedi made a brief stopover at Duesseldorf Airport, while a Turkish official said he had transited through Istanbul airport without saying where he was travelling from.

The band said its "thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of those affected and all the people of Manchester at this hard time".

British officials said Abedi had been on the intelligence radar before the massacre.

British media have reported that one of the eight people under arrest is Abedi's brother but police have not confirmed that. A woman detained on Wednesday was released without charge.

The UK terror threat level has been raised to critical for the first time in over a decade in the wake of the bombing - meaning more attacks may be imminent - as investigators seek to track down any associates of the suspect, named as 22-year-old Salman Abedi.
