Following the explosion concertgoers, including children, were separated from their parents as they fled the venue. Last nights horrific incident is said to be the deadliest attack in Britain since the 2005 London transit bombings.

Prime Minister Theresa May was quick to call the bombing a sickening act targeting children and young people. "All acts of terrorism are cowardly...but this attack stands out for its appalling sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives," May said.

According to TMZ, the singer will suspend her world tour in the wake of the terrorist bombing. The 23-year-old, who was set to perform on Thursday in London, has put her concerts on hold.
