Jihadbomben i Manchester kalles for Mother of Satan. Det var samme type som ble benyttet i London i 2005, i Paris i november 2015 og i mars 2016 i Brussel.

Texas Republican Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told The Associated Press the bomb used the explosive TATP.

Mr McCaul said the bomb suggests a «level of sophistication» that might indicate its maker had foreign training, and said the evidence gathered so far suggests «we’re not dealing with a lone wolf situation.»

«Nesten umulig å se at han ikke har fått hjelp», sier amerikanske kilder:

A US official told NBC the «big and sophisticated» bomb was made with materials that are hard to obtain in Britain, meaning «it’s almost impossible to see he didn’t have help».
