Daesh is another term for the Islamic State jihadist group, which has claimed responsibility for the attack on the concert by USA pop star Ariana Grande in which numerous victims were children.

She attended the concert with her husband and was fatally injured during the attack. The Palace of Westminster, which houses Parliament, was shuttered to those without passes, and tours and events were cancelled until further notice. Both groups have established training camps in those enclaves.

News of the arrests came as authorities in England continue to investigate what they're calling a network behind the bombing at a concert that had drawn girls and teenagers to Manchester.

British Home Secretary Amber Rudd said Abedi "likely" did not act alone in the strike at the close of an Ariana Grande concert Monday night and that he had been known to security forces "up to a point".

Rudd told the BBC she believed Abedi had recently returned from Libya, and French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said British investigators had told French authorities Abedi had probably travelled to Syria as well. In respect of the family's wishes I will make no further comment at this stage, ' Greater Manchester Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said.

Police carried out another arrest that evening in Wigan, in western Manchester, where police say they apprehended a "man carrying a package which we are now assessing".

Ramadan Abedi said the last time he spoke to Salman was five days ago as he was getting ready for a trip to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah, a smaller pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. Armed police patrolled outside St. Paul's Cathedral in London, another popular tourist spot.

Mr Akram Ramadan, 49, part of the close-knit Libyan community in south Manchester, said Abedi had been banned from Didsbury Mosque after he had confronted the Imam who was delivering an anti-extremist sermon.

British Prime Minister Theresa May plans to raise the issue with Trump during a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting on Thursday (25 May) in Brussels.

"There was a policeman, armed policeman, shouting at my neighbour. and I realised there is something wrong here", he said. He said the man, in his 40s, is named Adel and has a wife and several children. The arrests come after Prime Minister Theresa May raised the terror threat level to "critical", the highest setting. As of Wednesday morning, police say, they've identified all of the fatalities and contacted all of the families involved.

The day would also bring questions: about security at the venue, about Abedi's background, and about the implications for a country heading to the polls on June 8 for a general election in which national security had been only a fringe issue.

Officials said all those hospitalised had been identified.
