The Manchester Police suspect that Salman Abedi, who perpetrated Monday’s deadly terror attack, may have built another bomb which is now at the posession of his partners.

In a raid of Abedi’s home, police found a huge amount of explosive chemicals, which they believe were used to assemble a second bomb or possibly more. “The worry is there was enough to build two or three bombs and we can’t rule that out,” a security source told the Telegraph.

On Thursday, it was reported that Abedi had called his mother on the phone to ask for forgiveness just 15 minutes before blowing himself up at the Manchester Arena, killing 22 people and injuring dozens of others.
