    Default Manchester Terror Attack

    Manchester Bomber Was Product of West's Libya/Syria Intervention


    5.24.17

    Here's what the media and politicians don't want you to know about the Manchester, UK, suicide attack: Salman Abedi, the 22 year old who killed nearly two dozen concert-goers in Manchester, UK, was the product of the US and UK overthrow of Gaddafi in Libya and "regime change" policy in Syria. He was a radicalized Libyan whose family fled Gaddafi's secular Libya, and later he trained to be an armed "rebel" in Syria, fighting for the US and UK "regime change" policy toward the secular Assad government.

    The suicide attacker was the direct product of US and UK interventions in the greater Middle East.

    According to the London Telegraph, Abedi, a son of Libyan immigrants living in a radicalized Muslim neighborhood in Manchester had returned to Libya several times after the overthrow of Muamar Gaddafi, most recently just weeks ago. After the US/UK and allied "liberation" of Libya, all manner of previously outlawed and fiercely suppressed radical jihadist groups suddenly found they had free rein to operate in Libya. This is the Libya that Abedi returned to and where he likely prepared for his suicide attack on pop concert attendees. Before the US-led attack on Libya in 2011, there was no al-Qaeda, ISIS, or any other related terrorist organization operating (at least with impunity) on Libyan soil.

    Gaddafi himself warned Europe in January 2011 that if they overthrew his government the result would be radical Islamist attacks on Europe, but European governments paid no heed to the warnings. Post-Gaddafi Libya became an incubator of Islamist terrorists and terrorism, including prime recruiting ground for extremists to fight jihad in Syria against the also-secular Bashar Assad.

    In Salman Abedi we have the convergence of both these disastrous US/UK and allied interventions, however: it turns out that not only did Abedi make trips to Libya to radicalize and train for terror, but he also travelled to Syria to become one of the "Syria rebels" fighting on the same side as the US and UK to overthrow the Assad government. Was he perhaps even trained in a CIA program? We don't know, but it certainly is possible.

    While the mainstream media and opportunistic politicians will argue that the only solution is more western intervention in the Middle East, the plain truth is that at least partial responsibility for this attack lies at the feet of those who pushed and pursued western intervention in Libya and Syria.

    There would have been no jihadist training camps in Libya had Gaddafi not been overthrown by the US/UK and allies. There would have been no explosion of ISIS or al-Qaeda in Syria had it not been for the US/UK and allied policy of "regime change" in that country.

    When thinking about Abedi's guilt for this heinous act of murder, do not forget those interventionists who lit the fuse that started this conflagration. The guilt rests squarely on their shoulders as well.

    Manchester terror bomber 'IDENTIFIED': Authorities recover body of Arena suicide attacker

    THE Manchester terror bomber has been identified by UK following the deadly explosion which left 22 dead and more than 50 injured.

    By Rebecca Perring - May 23, 2017

    Police are trying to piece together what exactly happened following the Manchester Arena bombing, with a number children among the victims, at the end of a Ariana Grande concert.

    Chief Constable Ian Hopkins told a press briefing this morning a suicide bomber was behind the worst attack on the UK since the July 2007 bombings in London.

    It was carried out by one man carrying an improvised explosive device (IED), who also died on the scene, the police chief confirmed.

    And now it has emerged the suicide bomber's body has been recovered and identified by British and US officials, according to news channel CNN.

    Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed UK officials believe they know who the suspect is, but no names have been released.

    The attacker was reportedly found with ID.


    Greater Manchester Police confirmed the blast, which happened just after 10.30pm outside the venue in a public area, is being treated as a terrorist incident.

    The attack left thousands of people fleeing in terror and left carnage inside the venue, with one witness claiming "bodies were everywhere".

    Families were heading for the exits of the concert at the famous venue when the attacker detonated his device.

    Witnesses have described how they heard a huge blast and everyone "screaming" before they were told to "run".

    Concert-goers emerged from the venue covered in blood.

    One mother told how she smelt burning near the main foyer, where it is believed the attack took place.

    Terror experts warned that this was not a lone attack, but was planned and prepared.

    Counter terror expert, Professor Hamed El-Sa'id, of Manchester Metropolitan University, claimed the attack had been planned for a while and the suspected bomber had purposely chosen a "soft target".

    Speaking on Sky News, he said: "They knew exactly what they were doing. This didn't really happen overnight, they've been preparing for this for a while.

    "This was a very large attack and wouldn't have just happened overnight.

    "There definitely was some planning because the scale of the attack is much larger than to be done spontaneously."

    comments:

    The bomb which blown the body of the attacker into pieces, killed 22 innocents and injured 50+, can't damage his ID. Just like the planes could bring down Twin Towers on 9/11 but not harm their passports.

    Manchester Attack: Home Secretary Amber Rudd condemns US for leaks of shared British intelligence

    Confidential details appeared in the US media apparently leaked by US intelligence




    Video: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk...-a7752511.html

    The Home Secretary has criticised the US after confidential details about the Manchester Arena attack appeared to have been leaked to the media by American intelligence officers.

    Amber Rudd said US conduct had been "irritating" and said she had made clear to her American counterparts that such leaks "shouldn't happen again".

    The episode comes just a week after US president Donald Trump defended his right to leak classified intelligence to other countries' leaders. Mr Trump has also criticised leaking from the US intelligence establishment.

    Asked on BBC Radio 4's Today programme about the US leaks, Ms Rudd said: "The British police have been very clear that they want to control the flow of information in order to protect operational integrity, the element of surprise.

    "So it is irritating when it gets released from other sources and I have been very clear with our friends that that should not happen again."

    Asked whether US conduct had compromised the investigation into the Manchester Arena attack, she said: "I wouldn’t go that far but I can say they are perfectly clear about the situation and that it shouldn’t happen again."

    A number of details about the Manchester Arena attack appeared in the US media – most notably on networks NBC and CBS – before British police had publicly released them to the UK media.

    The initial death tolls, the fact the attack appeared to be a suicide bombing, and the name of the attacker, were all released through US outlets, apparently via leaky US intelligence sources.

    Intelligence is shared between Britain, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand under the UKUSA agreement, the so called "Five Eyes" programme.

    The latest leaks come after Theresa May personally expressed confidence in the US-UK intelligence sharing programme. Questioned about Mr Trump's apparent leaking to the Kremlin, Ms May had said: "We continue to work with the United States and we continue to share intelligence with the United States, as we do with others around the world."

    The Associated Press news agency last week reported an official from an unnamed European country saying that they might stop sharing intelligence with Washington due to leaks, and that continuing to do so “could be a risk for our sources”.

    Twenty two people were killed and 59 injured, many of them children, in Monday night's attack on the Manchester Arena during a concert by pop star Ariana Grande.

    Salman Abedi: Alleged Manchester attacker’s father says son is innocent


    Ramadan Abedi denies his son is linked to extremist militants

    The father of the alleged Manchester bomber has said his son is innocent, according to a report.

    Ramadan Abedi is understood to have denied his son is linked to extremist militants or the suicide bombing that killed 22 people.

    Mr Abedi said he spoke to his 22-year-old son, Salman Abedi, five days ago and he was getting ready to visit Saudi Arabia and sounded "normal”, Associated Press (AP) reported.

    He said that his son visited Libya a month-and-a-half ago.

    The elder Abedi, speaking to AP by telephone from Tripoli, said: "We don't believe in killing innocents. This is not us."

    He said his other son, Ismael, was arrested on Tuesday morning.

    A family friend told The Independent Abedi and his brother remained in the UK when their parents returned to Libya with the rest of the family four years ago but travelled back and forth to the war-torn country.

    Mr Abedi, Salman's father, fled Tripoli in 1993 after Muammar Gaddafi's security authorities issued an arrest warrant and eventually sought political asylum in Britain.

    He is now the administrative manager of the Central Security force in Tripoli.

    Suspected suicide bomber Abedi was born in Britain to a Libyan family, grew up in Manchester's southern suburbs and once attended university there.

    Race hate attack fears after arsonists torch mosque hours after Manchester Arena terror attack which killed 22


    Criminals have targeted the Jamia Qasmia Zahidia Islamic Centre mosque in Oldham, Greater Manchester, burning down a door

    A mosque has been targeted by arsonists following the Manchester Arena blast.

    Criminals targeted the Jamia Qasmia Zahidia Islamic Centre mosque in Oldham, Greater Manchester, by burning down a door.

    Police have launched a probe and are looking into the possibility it could be a race hate crime in retaliation to last night's tragedy.

    ISIS today claimed responsibility for the atrocity, which has killed 22 people - including children - and left 119 injured.

    Imam Mohammad Saddiq told the Daily Mail: "there's a possibility that it's a retaliation to what happened in Manchester last night but we can't confirm that."


    There was no one inside the mosque at the time.

    Anti-terror police have arrested a 23-year-old in south Manchester in connection with the blast at the arena.


    The bomb was detonated in the Manchester Arena foyer as fans were piling out of an Ariana Grande concert at around 10.30pm.


    Many children were among the victims.


    Victims named so far include eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos and 18-year-old Georgina Callander.

    Homeless man, Stephen Jones, who was sleeping near the arena at the time of the blast, has told how he tried to help the young victims of the tragedy.

    In a harrowing account, he told how the young victims were covered in blood and some had nails in their faces.

    Mancunians have rallied round following the atrocity, with many offering medical aid and even their homes so people have somewhere to sleep.

    A vigil to remember the fallen will be held at 6pm tonight in Albert Square in Manchester city centre.

    False flags exposed on USA’s biggest Muslim TV show




    As Ramadan begins – shortly after the latest apparent false flag in Manchester – let’s take a few minutes to listen to the Muslim point of view.


    Literally millions of non-Muslims, virtually all of whom know very little about Muslims or Islam, are clogging the world’s communications arteries with hate propaganda. One of them is Alex Jones, who recently lied outrageously about a supposed “incredible response by the Muslims everywhere celebrating the attack in Manchester.”


    In reality, Muslims are disgusted by such events. Polls show that Muslims oppose terrorism (attacking civilians) far more than non-Muslims do. That’s because Islam’s scriptures clearly prohibit such abominations. No real Muslim would ever bomb a crowd of innocent civilians. Ever.
    Gallup, for example, found that Muslims overwhelmingly oppose terrorism – while the worst pro-terrorism nation on earth is the USA, where almost half the population thinks terrorism is “sometimes justified.” (Source.)


    Polls also show that about 80% of Muslims reject the official account of 9/11. (Examples here and here.) Even more know its prime beneficiary was the enemies of Islam. Ditto for all other false flags pinned on “radical Muslim” patsies.


    Get to know Muslims and their actual viewpoints and attitudes. Watch the Deen Show episode above. You may also want to check out Eddie’s recent response to Alex Jones: “Islam is Not Radical: Alex Jones gets the message from Muslims”

    Firefighters angry they were 'STOPPED' from helping bomb victims at Manchester Arena 'until 90 MINUTES after attack'


    Members of the emergency service have spoken of their "shame" - claiming they were forced to watch the horror unfold on TV just half a mile from the attack

    Firefighters have spoken of their “shame” after bosses allegedly stopped them from helping victims of the Manchester Arena bomb until 90 MINUTES after the attack.

    Members of the emergency service have told the Manchester Evening News they were aware paramedics were in urgent need of back up in the aftermath of the terror attack - but they were prevented from going in.

    Devastated crew members have said that by the time five appliances were sent to the scene, all the dangerous work had been done.

    Suicide bomber Salman Abedi killed 22 people and left 119 injured when he blew himself up just as the light went up at an Ariana Grande concert on Monday.

    But crews claim all they could do was watch the horror unfold on TV - just half a mile from the scene.

    Now Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham who has responsibility for Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, is to order an independent review into decision making by brigade managers on the night of the attack.

    Mr Burnham said: “I am aware of concerns from firefighters about the speed of the response to the terror attack at the Manchester Arena on Monday night. I am taking these concerns seriously and, at the appropriate time, they will be subject to a full evaluation and briefing.

    “But they have to be seen in context. Large numbers of highly-trained professionals were on site within minutes providing support to people. I could not be more proud of all of Greater Manchester’s emergency services who, over the last 48 hours, have gone to incredible lengths to carry the city through this dark time.”

    Mr Bunrham could decide to call for a full independent review after the evaluation.

    On an internal brigade website, Save The UK Fire Service, there had been a call for the mayor to launch an investigation.

    One firefighter slammed brigade bosses saying: “Their lack of leadership was reflected in the desperate pleas of North West Ambulance Service staff shouting that firefighters were needed at the scene.

    "They were sat at Manchester Central fire station watching the incident unfold on TV.

    "The station is half a mile from the incident.

    The nearest crews - based at Manchester Central - were sent two “pre-alerts” by their regional control room within a few minutes of the bomb going off.

    They prepared to go to the scene, but were instead told to rendezvous at Philips Park station.

    They waited there for an hour, and were told they had to wait for “specialists” who had bulletproof overalls to arrive from Leigh and Heywood before being sent back to Manchester Central.

    Finally they got the go-ahead to go.

    Gary Keary, Fire Brigades Union, Brigade Secretary, said: “We have had a meeting with the County Fire Officer and we have raised initial concerns which will be included in a joint investigation.”

    Matt Wrack, the national leader of the FBU attended the meeting between Manchester union officials and County Fire Officer, Peter O’Reilly.

    In an email to Mr O’Reilly just hours after the attack, one fireman says: “The more I see of the news the angrier I’m getting! What are we employed for if not to help people? I always classed us as the best emergency service, the people who would put ourselves at risk before any other service. I feel ashamed today.

    “Yes, it’s terrifying for us as much as the next person but that’s what we’re employed for, to take the risk that others can’t or won’t. We have the trainng and resources to respond correctly and that’s exactly what we should have done.”

    “Mr Burnham added: “My first concern will always be for the families affected and I would ask everybody not to jump to conclusions in this moment when we’re still coming to terms with what has happened.

    “What we can say is that this was an extremely serious, fast moving situation and the full nature of it did not become clear for a number of hours. In coming weeks we will have to understand what decisions were made and why.”

    We have contacted the fire service numerous times for a comment.

    False Flags Exposed On USA's Biggest Muslim TV Show

    Another False-Flag Staged Terror Event in Manchester

    By: D.Quest - 25 May 2017

    Originally I was undecided on this event. Usually I wait a few days and see what kind of information the internet digs up and then I decipher though the theories and try to determine if an event was organic (a real terror event) or synthetic (a manufactured terrorist event), and well it seems that the Manchester theater bombing was another Gladio-B inspired staged event. If you are following my work then you should already be familiar with false flag terror events, what they are and how they are used. In this essay I will show what material lead me to believe that is was a false flag event and also try to look into the most likely culprits and establish what their potential motives may have been.

    The first piece of information I thought was suspect, and due to my experience in dealing with false-flag events, myself and other researchers found it immediately suspicious that the UK/Manchester authorities ran a drill in the same location almost mimicking the recent event exactly, just one year prior, in the comment section you will find awake people months ago saying prepare for a false-flag in this location. As it is a well documented phenomenon that government sponsored drills happen before or during active terrorist events. This was seen on 9/11/2001, 7/7, Sandy Hook, Boston, and many other drills that were preparing for or presented as an organic event.

    Crisis Actors Rehearse Terror Attack in Manchester

    https://safeshare.tv/x/jbOnnVspx8g 


    What if they did this same thing ran this same drill at the exact moment a concert of 20,000 people let out? How many people would be injured in the chaos? 120-150 people would be trampled, pushed, trip fall, slip, crash, not surprising this is exactly what we see in the so called Manchester terror attack.

    Here is an eye witness tweet that may help to confirm this suspicion.

    ukm1.jpg

    Like by the time they were coming out of the building the police were already there waiting for them. According to eye witness Isabel Hodgins by the time she made it the exits of the venue, police had already arrived were assembling their guns, and had a section coordinated off.

    The hospital also ran a drill, simulating the exact scenario of events one month prior to the actual event.

    Manchester False Flag Hospital trained in advance
    video:
    https://safeshare.tv/x/PEGUOXgMAE8

    There was also a tweet just after the event from the Manchester police saying that there would be a secondary planned explosion in the area. This in my opinion is to insure that the surrounding area 'heard an explosion' and thus would connect the planned 'very loud explosion used to blow up a shirt, to the false-flag event.

    ukm2.PNG

    The second thing that started to make this look like a false-flag event is the controlled narrative. A theater full of teenagers and the amount of footage that we have of the actual event is minuscule to say the least, in the era of one button live steaming this is no longer acceptable. On top of the lack of peer 2 peer video footage, there is also, (as normal in false-flag events) a complete lack of crime scene footage and publicly available evidence, like none actually.

    "There were people covered in blood." said witness Adam McKay

    So where is the gore? I'm a big boy we dissected a frog in biology, I have access to LiveLeak, I promise I can take seeing some blown off limbs and twisted bodies, but once again nothing, not one photo or piece of footage that would even violate Facebook's terms, again this is unacceptable for an event where you want me to believe that a IED full of shrapnel exploded in a crowd of people, the lack of blood and guts seen compared to the eyewitness accounts is laughable.

    Which brings me into my third line of reasoning Crisis Actors. These people are unbelievably horrible actors, I'm not going to overwhelm you with theory and conjecture, take the time for yourself to watch the main stream media interviews after these's events. To the discerning listener you will begin to tell that the innocent spectators caught up in the drill are being used, along with actors who are there to deliver the predetermined narrative and deliver the establishment talking points.




    Thomas Burrows for Daily Mail Online and Lucy Mae Beers For Daily Mail Australia both published an article (since been retracted) that included a picture of a young girl who they said was missing from the concert after the event. However a mother in Australia woke up to hundreds of messages of concern because her daughter's photo was plastered all over Twitter as a victim of the Manchester terror attack. The only problem? Rachel Devine's daughter Gemma was in Melbourne.



    The 12-year-old was safe in Australia, the Daily mail had "mistakenly" used Gemma's photo, claiming the girl was lost in the panic following the blast at the Ariana Grande concert. Her mother Rachel, is a blogger and photographer, used social media to correct the misinformation.

    ukm3.PNG


    Another photo of a girl murdered in 2013 was also circulated by the media in a fake list of those missing after the Manchester explosion. The mother of Jayden Parkinson said she was unhappy her daughter’s image had been posted alongside images of other people alleged to be missing. Jayden, 17, was killed by her ex-boyfriend in Oxfordshire.


    ukm4.jpg

    “I’m indeed alive” tweeted YouTube food reviewer John, who’s photo was also shared among the missing or dead. Andrea Noel’s picture even made it on Fox & Friends who aired a tweet by @TitanBuilder1 that had been retweeted over 1,000 times, containing reportedly missing children and people un-involved such as Andrea and John.


    ukm5.PNG.jpg

    As more comes out time will confirm that this event was most likely a staged operation involving multiple clandestine structures including MI6, Mossad, and the Theresa Mary May administration who I’m pointing my finger at as being a key agent behind this event as her administration along with the international Zionist cabal have the most to gain from perpetuating the fear of radical Islamist in Britain. “The Manchester bombing was a horrible tragedy for Britain, it was a political boon, however, for Prime Minister Theresa May.” Said The New York Times today in an article entitled Manchester Bombing Shifts Political Narrative as U.K. Election Looms. With the election coming in just a few weeks this event is exactly what was needed to boost May’s chance of re-election over main opponent Jeremy Corbyn. Or as Tim Bale, a professor of politics at Queen Mary University of London. said “It’s almost bound to play to the strengths of an incumbent prime minister, especially one responsible, in her previous job, for security.” Very telling isn’t it.

    Police Apologise For 'Allahu Akbar' Use In Mock Manchester Attack

    Greater Manchester police say it was unacceptable to use religious phrase immediately before fake suicide bombing.

    By Frances Perraudin - Tuesday 10 May 2016

    Greater Manchester police have apologised after a fake suicide bomber shouted “Allahu Akbar” during a simulated terrorist attack at one of the UK’s biggest shopping centres.

    More than 800 volunteers took part in the training exercise at the Trafford Centrein Manchester on Monday night. The mock attack, which took five months to plan, was designed to be similar to the marauding-style Paris and Brussels atrocities.

    The assistant chief constable, Garry Shewan, released a statement on Tuesday, apologising for linking the exercise with Islam, after the police were criticised on social media following the drill. “Allahu Akbar” means God is greatest in Arabic.

    “For the past 24 hours, GMP, along with other agencies, has been hosting a counter-terrorism training exercise based at the Trafford Centre, which began with a mock suicide bomber detonating a bomb inside the shopping centre,” Shewan said.

    “It is a necessity for agencies, including the police, to train and prepare using exercises such as this, so that we would be in the best possible position to respond in the event that the unthinkable happened and an attack took place.

    “The scenario for this exercise is based on a suicide attack by an extremist Daesh-style organisation and the scenario writers have centred the circumstances around previous similar attacks of this nature, mirroring details of past events to make the situation as real life as possible for all of those involved.

    “However, on reflection, we acknowledge that it was unacceptable to use this religious phrase immediately before the mock suicide bombing, which so vocally linked this exercise with Islam. We recognise and apologise for the offence that this has caused.”

    One of the people who complained, Manchester GP Siema Iqbal, tweeted:


    Dr Erinma Bell MBE retweeted Iqbal, adding: "Good question. We need to move away from stereotypes if we want to achieve Real learning. A terrorist can be anyone."

    The Community Safety Forum, an anti-Islamophobia organisation, said: "This sort of thing panders to stereotypes and further divides us. It will increase anti-Muslim hate crime."

    Tony Lloyd, the mayor of Greater Manchester and the area's police and crime commissioner, said the simulated terror attack had been "a very good exercise in preparing for a situation we never want to see, but must be ready for".

    But, he added, it was frustrating that the operation had been "marred by the ill-judged, unnecessary and unacceptable decision by organisers" to have those playing the parts of terrorists shout the phrase. "It didn't add anything to the event, but has the potential to undermine the great community relations we have in Greater Manchester," he said.

    The drill, the latest in a series of similar exercises across the country, started at midnight in the food court when a man dressed in black walked in and shouted at the crowd. An explosion was then heard before a masked gunman appeared and began firing shots.

    Neither the emergency services nor volunteers taking part knew the precise details of the scenario, called Exercise Winchester Accord. Volunteers, wearing ear defenders and safety glasses, screamed as if they were in pain as the exercise unfolded.

    The drill lasted for six hours and the shopping centre was open as usual on Tuesday, although the exercise was due to continue unseen and at unspecified locations until Wednesday, when it will finish in Merseyside.

    Aussie Mum Stunned As Daughter's Photo Used In Fake Manchester Terror Missing Child Post

    May 24, 2017

    A mother woke to hundreds of messages of concern after her daughter's photo was plastered all over Twitter as a potential victim of the Manchester terror attack.

    The only problem? Rachel Devine's daughter Gemma was in Melbourne.

    The 12-year-old was safe in Australia, but someone had mistakenly used Gemma's photo on Twitter, claiming the girl was lost in the panic scenes following the deadly blast at an Ariana Grande concert.

    Rachel, a blogger and photographer, has now used social media to correct the misinformation among the hundreds of desperate appeals for lost children caught in the mayhem.



    According to Gemma's mother, someone used a photo of Gemma on a fake Twitter profile claiming she was a friend of the 12-year-old.

    "I had many messages online asking me if Gemma was okay with screenshots [of her photo online]," Devine told Kidspot.

    "I have been calming fears all over the internet since that Gem was safe and nowhere near the event. I just thought, why? What purpose does that serve?

    "As for the person who used it this way, I just don't understand. I can only imagine that it had nothing to do with my daughter specifically and more that the image was easily found and used to get attention for the poster?"

    Devine believes the image of her daughter may have come from the 12-year-old's Instagram account.


    Although Devine is relieved her daughter is safe, she feels heartbroken for parents who sent their children "to a beautiful concert" only to have them taken by terrorists.

    Devine and Gemma weren't the only notable fake news circling following the attacks.


    The Daily Express and Daily Star ran articles claiming a gunman had been spotted outside the Royal Oldham Hospital, on the edge of Greater Manchester.



    The stories appeared to be sourced to a viral Facebook post claiming a man was outside the hospital with a gun.

    There were also multiple reports that the Holiday Inn hotel had 50 unaccompanied children on its premises.

    Many of the messages, apparently shared in good faith, urged concerned relatives to phone Holiday Inn directly if they could not get in touch with their child after the terrorist attack.

    This was later found to be incorrect.

    A number of news outlets also reported that Glasgow Central Mosque was graffitied after the Manchester terror attack.


    However, the mosque confirmed that the graffiti appeared last Friday and has since reported it to the police.

    Police confirmed 22 people died from the suicide blast and at least 59 people were injured.

    Manchester attack: 2013 murder victim among fake 'missing'

    23 May 2017

    Jayden Parkinson was discovered by police in an occupied grave in Didcot

    A photo of a girl murdered in 2013 has been circulated in a fake list of those missing after the Manchester explosion.

    Twenty-two people were killed and 59 injured in a suicide attack at Manchester Arena on Monday night at an Ariana Grande concert.

    The mother of Jayden Parkinson said she was unhappy her daughter's image had been posted alongside images of other people alleged to be missing.

    Jayden, 17, was strangled by her ex-boyfriend in Oxfordshire.

    "She was killed almost four years ago not last night, not happy," Samantha Shrewsbury tweeted, after seeing the picture on an online newspaper article.


    "Why is my MURDERED daughter's picture being used in a collage of pictures of children missing dead after last night terror attack?" she asked.

    Ms Shrewsbury also posted a We Stand with Manchester picture.

    Speaking to the BBC, she said: "It is horrible to see her photo being used in this way.

    "I feel sorry for the genuine parents of missing children.

    "The collage is still being retweeted... I can't figure out who made the collage and why they would include my daughter's picture in it.

    "We are still trying to get to the bottom of this."

    Several images circulating online after the Manchester attack have been identified as fakes.

    Jayden was found in the graveyard of All Saints Church in Didcot, Oxfordshire, in December 2013.

    She had been killed by Ben Blakeley, 23, from Reading, and hidden in his uncle's grave. Blakeley was jailed for life in 2014.
