Manchester Attack

Ariana Grande safe after explosion at Manchester concert

A representative for Ariana Grande said she is safe following a suspected terrorist attack at her concert Monday night in Manchester, England, which left at least 19 people dead and 50 injured.

"Ariana is okay," the singer's rep told NBC News. "We are further investigating what happened." Hip hop artist Bia, who also performed at the concert, tweeted, "Guys, we are okay. Thank you, we love you." The explosion at the Manchester Arena took place right after Grande finished her show, witnesses said.

Update: Grande tweeted late Monday that she was "broken. From the bottom of my heart, I am so, so sorry. I don't have words."
