Three years ago, a man who helped his brother with a suicide bomb attack was sentenced to at least 55 years in prison.

The bomb attack killed 22 people at the end of the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

In March this year, 23-year-old Hashim Abedi was convicted of murder for encouraging and helping his brother Salman to blow himself up in Manchester Stadium. His parents arrived before the end of the concert in May 2017.

Among the dead were seven children, the youngest was only eight years old, and 237 others were injured. Since the London transport suicide bombing killed 52 people in 2005, the attack was the deadliest in the UK. Judge Jeremy Baker said these people were also the culprits. They deliberately targeted young people at a concert where nearly half of the people killed were children or teenagers.

Judge Baker told the Old Bailey Court in London:

“The most obvious reality is that these are cruel crimes: they are huge in scale, with deadly intent and shocking consequences.”

He sentenced Abedi to life imprisonment for murder and conspiracy to cause an explosion and said he will serve at least 55 years in prison.

They manufactured the device at another address in the city and then bought a car to store the bomb-making equipment shortly before returning to Libya in mid-April 2017.

Hashim remained in Libya:

When his 22-year-old brother carried out the bomb attack, but the police said he persuaded his acquaintances to buy chemicals to make explosives and purchased metal drums to make prototypes.

Hashem denied involvement, but did not provide trial evidence, and the jury agreed that he was murdered like his brother.

In his comments on Thursday’s verdict, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that the Manchester attack was “a horrific and timid act of violence against children and families”.

The youngest victim killed in the attack was only eight years old.

Caroline Curry, the mother of 19-year-old Liam Curry, held up a photo of her son in court and addressed an empty dock.
