There have been multiple reports confirming at least 20 casualties from what is now being called a terrorist attack. Manchester police have collaborated multiple reports and speculation, releasing a statement saying that “there are a number of confirmed fatalities.”
Videos of the chaos and the horrific aftermath of the explosion are currently flooding social media. Many chilling clips of fans crying and screaming in hysteria, running for their lives outside of arena is all that can been seen in the aftermath of the incident.
22-year-old Majid Khan, who was in attendance, told The Independent:
“I and my sister, along with a lot of others were seeing Ariana Grande perform at Manchester Arena, and we were all exiting the venue when around 10.40-10,45pm-ish, a huge bomb-like bang went off that hugely panicked everyone and we were all trying to flee the arena.
“It was one bang and essentially everyone from the other side of the arena where the bang was heard from suddenly came running towards us as they were trying to exit Trinity Way and that was blocked so everyone was just running to any exit they could find as quickly as they could.“Everyone was in a huge state of panic, calling each other as some had gone to the toilet whilst this had gone off, so it was just extremely disturbing for everyone there.”
Other celebrities send in their words of comfort.
