New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday condemned the blast in Manchester in the UK which killed at least 22 people and injured around 50.

"The attacker died detonating the device," police said.

 

"Pained by the attack in Manchester. We strongly condemn it. Our thoughts are with the families of the deceased & prayers with the injured," Modi tweeted.

An explosion occurred at a pop concert by US star Ariana Grande in the Manchester city which is being treated as a terrorist incident.
