Muslim community worker ‘warned officers about Manchester bomber five years ago’

A Muslim community worker who knew the Manchester bomber said they warned officials that he appeared to support terrorism.

The unnamed worker said they knew the bomber Salman Abedi when he was at college, and had expressed their concern to officers after he said he thought ‘being a suicide bomber was OK’.

He also apparently made comments ‘supporting terrorism’, which were also reported.

The calls were made five years ago after Abedi left school, they told the BBC.
