Hashem Abedi found guilty of murder over Manchester Arena bombing

Hashem Abedi has been found guilty of murder over the Manchester Arena bombing that killed 22 people in 2017.

At his previous trial, the brother of Salman Abedi, was told that he was ‘just as guilty’ as his older brother, who detonated the explosives in a suicide attack.

He was not present as the Old Bailey returned their verdicts on the remaining counts.

Abedi has continued to evade responsibility for the attack since that took place on May 22nd, 2017.

The trial heard Hashem Abedi had encouraged his brother and helped him design the bomb. He also sourced shrapnel and chemicals to make the deadly TATP explosive.

A panel of three women and eight men found Abedi guilty of murder, attempted murder and conspiring with his brother to cause explosions. Deliberations lasted less than five hours.

He now faces life in prison. More to follow.
