U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has called the attack in Manchester one of Britain's "worst ever" terror attacks.

The deadly attack at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena late Monday has now claimed 22 lives and is being treated as a terrorist incident, a spokesman for the Greater Manchester Police has confirmed.

Police say the attacker died at the scene of the incident, which took place around 10:33 BST Monday at the end of a pop concert in central Manchester, about 160 miles north west of London. The attacker used a self-detonating explosive in the 21,000-seat capacity arena, police said, and noted that inquiries at this stage are focused on whether he acted alone or with the assistance of others.
