The brother of a sucide bomber, who blew himself up at a Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, has been charged with the murder of 22 people at the event.

Salman Abedi, 22, detonated a bomb at Manchester Arena as parents arrived to collect their children at the end of the concert in May 2017.

Among the dead were seven children, the youngest aged just eight, while 237 people were injured and 670 survivors reported suffering from psychological trauma.

Prosecutors said his younger brother Hashem Abedi, now also 22, was equally responsible for the murders by helping his sibling carry out the attack.

A court in London heard Abedi had assisted his brother with constructing the bomb, buying screws and nails to be used as shrapnel.
