The death toll in England has reached 22, and at least 59 are injured following a suicide attack last night in Manchester. The blast happened just after 8:30 local time near the end of an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena. Authorities are saying the lone male attacker detonated an improvised explosive device, killing himself in the blast. The explosion occurred outside the building near the entrance to a nearby train station. Many of the victims were children and teenage girls. Grande, herself just 23 years old, has cancelled the rest of her European tour.
