Islamic State group claims Manchester blast

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Islamic State group says one of its members planted bombs in the middle of crowds in Manchester, England, where 22 people died in an explosion, The Associated Press reports.

Police, however, have spoken only of "an improvised device" used in the attack.

IS says "a soldier of the caliphate planted bombs in the middle of Crusaders gatherings" then detonated them. It did not say whether the attacker was killed.

The group claimed that "30 Crusaders were killed and 70 others were wounded," higher than the totals confirmed by authorities in Manchester.
