Info just coming in. Two possible explosions. Maybe nothing but BBC saying that police are calling it a "serious incident"

Question is whether the fatalities are from an explosion or just from a stampede.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

Now I'm reading that it wasn't a suicide bomber, but that some pressure cooker/nail bombs were planted in the lobby

Deliberate targetting of kids at a show is a new low imho. :(

Targeting and killing 200 elementary students was as low as it has gotten IMO

I hear what you're saying but - your comment implies the bombers have some moral compass or that there are rules of no-go targets.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ariana-gran ... sis-claim/

CBS News confirmed Tuesday that the man who blew himself up the previous night at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, was 23-year-old Salman Abedi, who was known to British authorities prior to the attack.

In a generic statement posted online, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) claimed responsibility for Abedi's suicide bomb attack, which left 22 people dead, including children, at one of the entrances to the Manchester Arena.

Fair point - anything that happened so far indicates they don't.
