The pictures are said to have caused fury among police and security services, with Theresa May to raise the issue with Donald Trump at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, and some intelligence sharing put on pause.

When she attends the G7 summit in Italy on Friday, she said she would head up a discussion on counter-terrorism "and on how we will work together to prevent the plotting of terrorist attacks".

UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd on Wednesday roasted the US Department of Homeland Security and other intelligence branches after the bomber's identity and details of the probe leaked out to US media before British officials felt ready to disclose them.

A total of 11 people have been arrested in Britain and Libya over Monday's suicide bombing on a pop concert in the northwestern English city of Manchester by a British-born man of Libyan origin.

Ariana Grande has cancelled gigs at London's O2 Arena following a terrorist attack at Manchester tour date which killed 22 people. Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham raised the issue with the USA ambassador, reports said.

The pictures were apparently taken by police investigators and, according to British government ministry sources, leaked by US counterparts they had been shared with.

U.S. channel ABC News reported that police had found a kind of bomb-making workshop in Abedi's home and he had apparently stockpiled enough chemicals to make additional bombs.




British Prime Minister Theresa May will raise the issue with Donald Trump on Thursday, a government source said, after the New York Times published detailed pictures of the crime scene in Manchester where 22 people were killed. But "part of that trust is knowing that intelligence can be shared confidently", she said.

Bin Salem said Abedi's mother told investigators her son left for the United Kingdom four days before the attack after spending a month in Libya.

Meanwhile, Abedi's father and brother have also been detained in Libya. Hopkins said the leaks "caused much distress for families that are already suffering terribly with their loss".

Details of the intelligence agencies' knowledge of Abedi came as police hunting the network behind his attack said they had made "significant" arrests and seized "very important" items in raids linked to the investigation. Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said the leaks "greatly" concerned him, and added that he had raised these with the US ambassador to Britain.

Ahmed Bin Salem, a spokesman for the Special Deterrence Force, also known as Rada, said that Salman's brother Hashem, 20, had travelled from London to Tripoli on April 16. "We have been following him for more than one month and a half", Bin Salem said.

- A 23-year-old man is arrested by masked police in the Chorlton ara of south Manchester near where Abedi is believed to have lived. Based on the account from a younger brother, investigators think Abedi used the internet to learn how to make a bomb and "seek victory for the Islamic State", bin Salem said.

She also tweeted a link to a fund-raising site for the victims organised by the Manchester Evening News, which has so far brought in some 1.7 million pounds (S$3 million).
