According to NBC News, 22 people have died while several hundreds suffered injuries at an Ariana Grande concert last night. The catastrophe took place in Manchester, England’s famous Manchester Arena.
Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins told reporters,”We have been treating this as a terrorist incident.” Other law enforcement officials have stated that there have been two explosions during Grande’s concert.
The explosion happened outside, naturally triggering extreme chaos inside the venue for the concertgoers. Twitter user @hannawwh caught the incident on video as it happened.
