British police made "immense progress" in the investigation of terrorist act at the concert in Manchester. This was reported by police representative Mark Rowley, according to BBC.

Law enforcement officers have already "got hold of a large part" of the terror network they believe bomber Salman Abedi was part of. However, new arrests are not excluded.

As CNN reported, police also established that the terrorist was talking to his brother in Libya by phone shortly before the blast. Yet, brother earlier claimed at the questioning he had no idea about the upcoming attack.

"We are following up on the network, rolling it up, trying to contain it. As you've seen from the number of arrests, we are on the right track to try to contain it," UK Security Minister Ben Wallace informed CNN.

As is known, at least 22 people have been killed and over 120 injured in what is being investigated as a suspected suicide bombing of a crowded pop concert in Manchester, the most deadly attack in Britain in a decade.
