Manchester’s Arndale mall evacuated after ‘loud bang’ heard

MANCHESTER – Manchester’s Arndale center was evacuated after a bomb scare, according to Reuters news agency.

Scores of people ran away from the center, a witness reportedly said.

Earlier, a fatal bomb blast shook the city in the early hours of Tuesday as an Ariana Grande concert ended. A total of 22 people died from the explosion whereas many were left injured.

The attack comes 21 years after the heart of Manchester’s shopping district was razed to the ground by a blast in June 1996 when the Provisional IRA planted 3,300 lbs of homemade explosives in a lorry.

A couple of hours after a devastating bomb blast rocked an Ariana Grande concert in which 22 people were killed and more than 50 were injured, the Arndale shopping center was evacuated.

This is a developing story hence more details are awaited.
