Islamic State on Wednesday claimed responsibility behind the attack.

Manchester-born Abedi, a university dropout, grew up in a Libyan family in the northwestern English city. He is now a manager of the Central Security force in Tripoli.

The new insight into Abedi's motivation came as Britons faced stepped-up security, authorities pushed forward with raids and the investigation extended across Europe into Libya, where most of the suspected bomber's family lived.

The New York Times has defended the publication of leaked photographs appearing to show the bomb used in the Manchester terror attack and said the decision was "responsible". Police didn't provide any further information or say where Abedi was coming from when he landed in Duesseldorf.

Salman Abedi flew into Dusseldorf from Manchester about four days before getting on a flight back to England, Sky News reported, citing German intelligence.

A family friend, who spoke to the WSJ, said Abedi told his parents in Libya he was leaving to go on a pilgrimage to the Muslim holy city of Mecca within a week of the bombing.

Soon after the terror attack, Grande chose to suspend her "Dangerous Woman" world tour for at least two weeks.

President Donald Trump on Thursday described U.S. intelligence leaks over the Manchester bombing as "deeply troubling" and threatened to prosecute those responsible, after a warning by British Prime Minister Theresa May to keep shared data "secure".

Manchester health officials say 119 people sought medical treatment at the city's hospitals after the attack, and 64 are still hospitalized.
