Father and Brother of Manchester Bomber Arrested in Libya

The father and another brother of the Manchester suicide bomber Salman Abedi have been arrested in Libya. This comes mere hours after Abedi's father insisted that his son was innocent in the Manchester bombing. One of Salman's other brothers was arrested on Monday shortly after the bombings.

The brother arrested on Wednesday, Hashem, was reportedly planning a terrorist attack in Libya. Ramadan Abedi, the family patriarch, reportedly has ties to al-Qaeda.

The family splits time between Manchester and Libya.
