Alleged suicide bomber’s father arrested as he expresses doubts over son’s involvement

According to various outlets including an article in Reuters, Ramadan Abedi the father of Salman Abedi, expressed astonishment his son could be responsible for the alleged bomb attack in Manchester on May 21. And while he was voicing his doubts to a reporter, western-backed Libyan security forces arrived to take him away.

Many mainstream sources have claimed Ramadan Abedi was a member of an anti-Gaddafi terrorist group. Alternative analysis site goes further and suggests a link between Ramadan and MI6 operations in Libya.

Given that anti-Gaddafi Libyans have long been nurtured by the UK and other western nations, even if we don’t accept direct connections with the UK security apparatus, this seems an odd background for a putative suicide bomber, as even the Guardian noted. And indeed Ramadan Abedi, currently living in Libya, but having been resident in the UK for many years, expressed considerable surprise and consternation that his son would have committed such an act. He denied the suggestion Salman was a member of ISIS, and is quoted by Reuters as saying:

Salman doesn’t belong to any organization… The family is a bit confused because Salman doesn’t have this ideology, he doesn’t hold these beliefs…. I didn’t expect that to happen, never…”

Ramamdan also allegedly added the claim that there were “hidden hands” behind the attack.

In a truly bizarre development members of the Libyan Rada arrived while this interview was being conducted and escorted Ramadan away, for reasons that were not specified.

Earlier Salman’s brother, Hashem, was also detained by Rada “on suspicion of links to Islamic State.”

The speedy arrests leave open the question – is this a legitimate round up of terror suspects, or, as some have suggested, a means of silencing those who might reveal too much about the Abedi family’s connections with western security agencies?

  1. Why, how could young Mr. Abedi NOT have been involved? After all, security authorities fortuitously found an identifying bankcard on his body….

  2. Robertstiver, oh yes what more proof do we need! Reminds me of the passports found in the aftermath of 9/11 that belonged to the Arabs who were later proven to be alive after!
    And if the “young Mr Abedi” really existed then why do all the photo’s of him appear to be photoshopped?
    The elephant in the room here would be for the authorities to prove his passport existed and publish his passport face along with the passport number. And he must have a passport because he allegedly visited Libya recently which again should be on record.

    I call this story nothing but a hoax to back up the original staged hoax.
