The father of suspected Manchester terror attack ‘suicide bomber’ Salman Abedi has been whisked away by Masked men during a TV interview.
Ramadan Abedi was reportedly detained while recording television interviews in Libya, according to ITV News. It was later confirmed he was arrested in the Libyan capital Tripoli by counter-terrorism force according to a spokesman.
The counter-terrorism force detained Ramadan Abedi outside his home in the Tripoli suburb of Ayn Zara on Wednesday afternoon. An eyewitness said he was handcuffed by armed men who drove him away in two unmarked vehicles.
The development also came just hours after Hashem’s father broke his silence this afternoon to insist his other son, Salman, was innocent.
I don’t understand how he’d have become involved in an attack that led to the killing of children.
“Every father knows his son and his thoughts, my son does not have extremist thoughts.”
The younger brother of Salman Abedi was also arrested during a separate raid in Libya on suspicion of Islamic State links today.
