    An explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England caused a "number of confirmed fatalities and others injured," police said late Monday.

    Greater Manchester Police tweeted that they were responding to a "serious incident" at Manchester Arena and warned people to avoid the area. Manchester's Victoria Station, which is built under the terminal was evacuated and a number of ambulances were sent to the scene.

    Absolutely horrifying, completely and utterly despicable to target children...but sadly not unexpected.


    Manchester has a very high immigrant population...

    Kind of true, I wouldn't agree with all, especially the crying...that's very real. :(

    Also, the vigils and solidarity...people need a way to cope.
