Manchester Police Arrest in Bomb Probe 05/28 10:44

   The latest on the Manchester attack investigation and reaction.

   LONDON (AP) -- The Latest on the Manchester attack investigation and 
reaction (all times local):

   3:20 p.m. 

   British police say they have made another arrest in connection with the 
Manchester bombing, bringing the total to 12.

   Greater Manchester Police says a 25-year-old man was arrested in the city 
Sunday on suspicion of terrorist offenses. Eleven other men, aged between 18 
and 44, are in custody.

   Bomber Salman Abedi killed 22 people and himself in Monday's bombing after 
an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena.

   Police say they are also searching a new property in the Moss Side area of 
the city.

   Investigators say they have dismantled a large part of Abedi's network, but 
expect to make more arrests.

   11:30 a.m. 

   Pope Francis is urging prayers for the victims of the Manchester concert 
attack and has denounced how "so many young lives were cruelly broken."

   Francis led thousands of people in St. Peter's Square in prayer Sunday, 
saying he was "close to the relatives and all those who are weeping for the 
dead."

   Britain is still looking for other suspects in the May 22 bombing at an 
Ariana Grande concert that killed 22 people. Police have 11 suspects in custody 
but are looking for other members of the network of attacker Salman Abedi, a 
22-year-old Briton of Libyan descent

   The Manchester appeal was Francis' second prayer of the day: He also 
denounced the "act of ferocious violence" against a bus full of Coptic 
Christians in Egypt that left 29 dead Friday; the Islamic State group claimed 
responsibility.

   10:55 a.m. 

   Britain's interior minister says the hunt is still on for suspects in the 
Manchester bombing, and members of attacker Salman Abedi's network may still be 
at large.

   Home Secretary Amber Rudd says that "the operation is still at full tilt" 
and "we can't be entirely sure that it's closed."

   Abedi, a 22-year-old Briton of Libyan descent, killed 22 people on May 22 at 
an Ariana Grande concert. Police have 11 suspects in custody and have searched 
properties across the northwest England city.

   On Saturday, Britain lowered its official terrorism threat level from 
"critical" to "severe" after police said they had dismantled a large part of 
Abedi's network.

   Police have released surveillance-camera images of Abedi on the night of the 
attack and appealed for more information about his final days.
