Ariana Grande Suspends European Tour
I can’t begin to imagine how Ariana Grande must feel in the wake of the deadly bombing at her concert in Manchester on Monday (May 22).
The 22 lives were taken in what authorities are calling an act of terrorism.
The singer is understandably distraught and has suspended the remainder of her European Tour.
Ariana took to Twitter to say she is “broken” and “so so sorry.”
from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.

An Islamic group has claimed responsibility for the blast.
Via The Associated Press:
The Islamic State group says one of its members planted bombs in the middle of crowds in Manchester, England, where 22 people died in an explosion.
Police, however, have spoken only of “an improvised device” used in the attack.
IS says “a soldier of the caliphate planted bombs in the middle of Crusaders gatherings” then detonated them. It did not say whether the attacker was killed.
The group claimed that “30 Crusaders were killed and 70 others were wounded,” higher than the totals confirmed by authorities in Manchester.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by this tragedy.
Greater Manchester Police arrested a 23-year-old man on Tuesday.
