Manchester bomber Salman Abedi comes from a family of extremists, as Libyan authorities arrested the 23-year-old's dad and two brothers for similar plots, RadarOnline.com has learned.
According to reports, Abedi's father, Ramadan, and younger brother, Hashem, were taken into custody last night one day after counter-terror police picked up older brother Ismail, in Manchester.
Detectives said Hashem had links to ISIS and was planning a terror attack in Tripoli.
Abedi's father had been a revolutionary fighter against Gaddafi, who publicly support an Al Qaeda-linked group in Syria, the Daily Mail reports.
Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth made a surprise visit to the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital on Thursday — where many of the young victims in the explosion during Ariana Grande's concert are being treated — calling the attack "very wicked."
As Radar readers know, so far, 22 people have been confirmed dead with at least 119 more victims injured.
Eight-year-old Saffie Roussos and 18-year-old Georgina Callander, a fan who met Grande two years ago and tweeted her excitement before the show, were among the 22 who died.
