An explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England caused a “number of confirmed fatalities and others injured,” police said late Monday.

 

British Transport Police said an explosion occurred in the foyer of Manchester Arena at 10:30 p.m., around the time the concert finished. Others reported hearing two blasts, a discrepancy that could not immediately be reconciled. The cause of the blasts was not immediately confirmed, but bomb disposal units were reportedly at the scene.

Spokesman Joseph Carozza said Grande, who was performing at the arena as part of her “Dangerous Woman” world tour, was “okay” and added, “we are further investigating what happened.”

Witnesses described panic as concertgoers rushed to get out of the arena. Video from inside the arena showed people screaming as they made their way out amid a sea of pink balloons.
