The brother of the Manchester bomber knew he was going to carry out the atrocity more than a month ago, Libyan police claimed last night.

Engineering student Hashem Abedi was being interrogated last night in Tripoli over claims he helped his older brother Salman build the suicide vest.

The brothers’ father was also arrested in Libya yesterday.

Hashem, 20, has confessed to knowing about the attack when he visited his suicide bomber brother’s Manchester home in April, Libyan counter-terrorism officers said.

Detectives said Hashem had links to Islamic State and was planning to carry out a terror attack in Tripoli.

He was seized at gunpoint during a raid on his home by Tripoli’s Special Deterrent Force (SDF) on Tuesday night – a day after his brother killed 22 concert goers in Manchester. At the time he was said to be trying to obtain a £2,500 money transfer sent by his brother before the bombing.

The brothers’ father Ramadan, 51, was also arrested in Libya yesterday afternoon – hours after insisting his son Salman, 22, had nothing to do with the suicide bombing in Britain.

The arrests took place after Mr Abedi’s eldest son Ismail, 23, was held by British police in Manchester on Tuesday afternoon.
