At least 22 people–including children–were killed and 59 injured after an explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, on Monday night. The Guardian reports that the perpetrator was a man acting alone, who died at the scene after detonating an explosive device. Authorities are investigating whether the bomber was part of a wider network. The attack occurred outside the Manchester Arena at about 10:30 p.m., just minutes after Grande’s concert finished. “We saw young girls with blood on them, everyone was screaming and people were running. There was a lot of smoke,” eyewitness Sasina Akhtar told The Daily Mail. In the wake of the attack, Grande has indefinitely suspended her tour. She also took to Twitter to express her condolences. “Broken,” she wrote. “From the bottom of my heart, I am so so sorry. I don’t have words.”
