How the Muslim Salman Abedi returned from Libya days before concert attack & received secret terror training in Syria

This is the face of Manchester bomber Salman Abedi as it emerged he had only just returned from war-torn Libya before launching his horrific attack and was seen as the ‘face of hate’ among his neighbours.

British-born Abedi had spent time in a conflict zone – possibly Syria – before slaughtering 22 in a suicide bomb atrocity at Manchester Arena on Monday night, it has been claimed.

A friend of Abedi, a Mancunian of Libyan descent, said the attacker had returned from a three-week trip to Libya – also an ISIS hotbed – just days ago. He is understood to have made regular journeys to the North African country in recent years.
