Inside screaming and chaos as fans at an Ariana Grande concert run for safety. According to NBC, Bianca Landrieu, the Boston hiphop star known as Bia, who also performed, tweeted: "Guys we are okay!"

One of Grande's best friends, singer Nicki Minaj, has wrote her heart hurts for my sister, while singer Miley Cyrus said she wishes she could give my friend a great big hug right now. "I don't have words".

The incident at the Manchester Arena at the end of the gig is being treated by police as a terrorist attack.

Joseph Carozza, a representative from Grande's US record label, said the singer is OK and they are investigating what happened. I assure the people in Britain: "Germany stands by your side", she said.

The attack sparked a nightlong search for loved-ones - parents for the children they had accompanied or had been waiting to pick up, and friends for each other after groups were scattered by the blast.

Ambassador David Friedman said Trump's goal for now is simply "to begin a discussion that would hopefully lead to peace". President Donald Trump made a historic visit Monday to Israel's Western Wall , one of Judaism's holiest locations.

Witnesses reported hearing a "huge bomb-like bang" at around 10.30pm on Monday, as fans were leaving the arena after Grande's show, and described glass and metal nuts on the floor. "It was chaotic. Everybody was running and screaming and just trying to get out".
