The younger brother of the suicide bomber who killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester in 2017 is being kept in custody after attending a bail hearing.

Hashem Abedi appeared at Oxford Crown Court on Monday via video-link from Belmarsh Prison in southeast London as Judge Nigel Sweeney ordered the 22-year-old to be placed in custody before a preliminary court hearing at the Old Bailey in London or in Oxford on July 30th.

Apparently, Abedi traveled to Libya before his older brother detonated his suicide vest on that fateful night and is suspected of helping plan the attack. As a result he faces a mountain of charges, including some two dozen counts of murder for the attack victims, one count of attempted murder for those injured and one count of conspiring with his brother to cause explosions. Stay tuned for more regarding the situation as it unfolds.
