Last night in Manchester, England, an Ariana Grande concert ended in a tragic act of violence, when 19 people were killed from an explosion, and 50 other people were injured. Police are investigating the explosions as an act of terror, and concertgoers streamed out of the venue in a state of panic. A representative of Grande’s confirmed that she wasn’t hurt, and on Twitter, she made a statement: “broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so sorry. i don’t have words.”
Grande’s manager Scooter Braun also made a statement following the attack, via Twitter. “Tonight our hearts are broken. Words cannot express our sorrow for the victims and families harmed in this senseless attack,” he says. “We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all of those affected in your hearts and prayers.”
The parties responsible for the explosion have not been identified, but a Billboard report says that officials suspect it was the result of a suicide bomber.
