Manchester Attack: Members of Bomber's Mosque Talk to Rolling Stone

After Salman Ramadan Abedi, a 22-year-old British man of Libyan descent, was identified as the Manchester Arena bomber, members of the mosque that the Abedi family attended spoke to Rolling Stone, saying they are "saddened" and "horrified" at the deadly attack carried out by one of their members.

The blast occurred on Monday, May 22nd around 10:30 p.m. after Ariana Grande ended her concert with an encore of "Dangerous Woman" and a shower of pink balloons. The bomb went off in the outside foyer of the venue, near the main exit. The explosion killed 22 concert-goers, many of them children, and sent over a hundred others to the hospital, making it the deadliest such attack in the country since 2005. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, according to The New York Times. 

On Wednesday morning, police arrested three men in south Manchester in connection with the attack, Bloomberg reports. Police previously arrested a 23-year-old man, believed to be the bomber’s brother, on Tuesday morning.

The family of Salman Abedi, the bomber, worshipped at the Didsbury Mosque in Manchester, where the dad of the pair of brothers – named as "Abu Ismael" in the mosque – is a "well-respected man" of the congregation.

1. "He didn't seem to like bad words being said about ISIS."

That might be what you call a clue. I mean WTF?
