British police announced their 14th arrest Sunday in connection with the Manchester suicide bombing that killed 22 last week.

"Until the operation is complete, we can't be entirely sure that it is closed", she said. Another brother and Abedi's father have been detained in Libya.

Counter-terror officers stormed addresses in Gorton, Rusholme and Moss Side and explosions were reported at several of the searches, but police would not comment on whether controlled blasts were used to gain entry.

Police released photographs from security cameras showing Abedi on the night of the massacre, wearing jeans and trainers, a black bodywarmer and a baseball cap, with the straps of his backpack visible on his shoulders.

Fourteen locations are being searched and 12 men are in custody on suspicion of terror offences.

"I believe we can get them to be more successful in working with us to find a way of getting some of that information".

They have made an appeal to the public for information about the bomber's movements since 18 May, when he returned to the United Kingdom from Libya.

There were prayers for the victims at church services across Manchester on Sunday.

British police say they have made another arrest in connection with the Manchester bombing, bringing the total to 12. The 20,000 others have featured in previous inquiries and are categorised as posing a "residual risk".

Hours before the attack, he had phoned his mother and said "forgive me", according to a Libyan anti-terror official. Abedi was born in Manchester in 1994 to parents of Libyan origin, according to US sources citing British contacts.

Additional security measures are in place for the Great Manchester Run, where tens of thousands of runners are participating, including Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham.

Investigators say they have dismantled a large part of Abedi's network, but expect to make more arrests.

"I've always had a pride in this city, ever since I was born", he said.

Abedi had been a former "subject of interest" to MI5, but Ms Rudd said: "The intelligence services are still collecting information about him and about the people around him".

Three people were arrested - and quickly de-arrested - during the afternoon's operation at Quantock Street, Moss Side, leading them to post an outraged sign on their front door.

On Friday, UK Security Minister Ben Wallace told CNN in Manchester that there are "over 400 investigations now ongoing by the security services and police into terrorist planning or people thinking about terrorist planning".

"But I would not rush to conclusions. that they have somehow missed something".

The family of one victim, 18-year-old Georgina Callander, said her life had been cut short by "evil, evil men prepared to ruin lives and destroy families".
