LONDON (Reuters) - British police arrested a 20-year-old man in central Manchester overnight in connection with last month's suicide bomb attack that killed 22 people attending a concert by U.S. singer Ariana Grande, they said on Wednesday.

Police have arrested 20 people so far, released 12 without charge and are holding eight people in custody. The perpetrator of the attack in the northern English city died in the blast.
