The father and the younger brother of the suicide bomber who killed 22 people at a concert venue in Manchester have been arrested in Tripoli, a spokesman for a local counter-terrorism force said on Wednesday.
The counter-terrorism force detained the father, Ramadan Abedi, outside his home in the Tripoli suburb of Ayn Zara on Wednesday afternoon. A witness said he was handcuffed by armed men who drove him away in two unmarked vehicles.
The force, known as Rada, detained the brother Hashem Abedi, who was born in 1997, on Tuesday evening on suspicion of links to Islamic State, spokesman Ahmed Bin Salem said. He did not give any details on the reasons why the father was arrested.
But Hashem Abedi had been in touch with attacker Salman Abedi, Bin Salem said, and was suspected of planning to carry out an attack in the Libyan capital.
"We have evidence that he is involved in Daesh (Islamic State) with his brother. We have been following him for more than one month and a half," Bin Salem said. "He was in contact with his brother and he knew about the attack."
He said the younger brother had traveled from London to Tripoli on April 16.

Round ‘em up. Deport ‘em.
Good or bad?
Fake or real?........................
The Libyans have no problem rouging them up before shipping them off to Britain.
WOW what a family..but hey, according to liberals, banning people from Libya is racist and stuff
Cut off their welfare, including family members, and they will flee like rats.
Find every family member and kill them all. Find their imams and kill them and raze the mosks.
Take out their families. Bulldoze their homes. Discourage this kind of behavior, with extreme prejudice.
Put about a million people around the palace shouting, “MOVE THEM OUT!” for a week or two.
Do the same thing around Parliament.
I think they’d get the hint.
They must of really worked this guy over!! It took two unmarked cars to haul him away??
> The neighborhood, around an area called Moss Side, just a few miles from the concert hall, is considered by police to be a hot bed of ISIS recruitmen - http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/portrait-emerges-salman-abedi-suspected-manchester-bomber/story?id=47594845
Why is this allowed to exist?
I agree. I’d give it six months to turn those areas into ghost towns. Return to sender...
I bet that was painful.
They were picked up in Libya and I doubt they'll get any deportation proceedings. It sounds like they're on their way to an "undisclosed" location.
Manchester Police are concerned with “eradicating hate” and making people safe from hatred. The Mayor says “Theres a lot of people in this country not necessarily at risk from Islamic extremism but its far-right extremism”.
#ManchesterMoms need to protest outside HQ. The Mayor and police chiefs need to be fired.
Deport them to England?
