ISIS has claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing in Manchester that claimed the lives of at least 22 people, and wounded 59 others.
“One of the soldiers of the Caliphate was able to place an explosive device within a gathering of the Crusaders in the city of Manchester,” the terror group said in a statement published on its social media channels.
The claim came after ISIS celebrated the atrocity at Monday’s packed Ariana Grande performance at Manchester Arena as a victory against the “crusaders” of the West, The Telegraph reported.
An English-speaking ISIS supporter appeared earlier in a video holding up a sign with the word “Manchester” and the date of the attack.
