Manchester Arena Bomber's Brother Pleads Not Guilty to Fatal Attack

Charged with involvement in Salman's suicide bombing, Hashem Abedi is believed to have played a major role in planning the blast that claimed 22 lives at Ariana Grande's concert.

AceShowbiz - The brother of the terrorist behind the bomb blast that cost 22 Ariana Grande fans their lives has pleaded not guilty to murder charges.

Hashem Abedi appeared in court on Tuesday, October 22, charged with involvement in his brother Salman's sick attack on Manchester Arena in May, 2017, as Ariana's fans were filing out of a concert.

The 22-year-old also denied separate charges of attempted murder and conspiring with his brother to cause a fatal explosion.

Abedi was remanded in custody until January 13, when his rescheduled trial is due to begin.

Authorities believe Hashem played a major role in planning his brother's suicide bombing and they have been seeking his extradition from Libya since 2017. He was extradited to the U.K. in July and arrested.
