Panic situation was created in Manchester again on Thursday as police received a bomb scare call from a Trafford-based college, Press Trust of India reported. However, later it was reported that nothing was found in the suspected package. The cordon has also been removed. The bomb scare came two days after a deadly bomb attack, prepatrated by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which claimed 22 lives on Tuesday. The bomb attack took place at pop star Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester Arena.

The attack, which left 59 others injured, was reported to be the deadliest attack in the United Kingdom since 2005. As per the city police, the bomber blew himself up just after 10:33 pm (21:33 GMT), at the arena that can host a crowd to 21,000 people. The world stood in solidarity with Britain after the attack. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel went on Twitter to express her feelings on the tragedy and said, “Terrible news from Manchester! Our thoughts are now with our British friends. United we stand.”
