Latest News Ad: A Unique English Grammar, a most useful language book containing almost all ground rules of English, is available with the writer (mobile: 01779477091).                    Make is followed by bare infinitive in active voice but to-infinitive in passive voice: We made him do it. He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

 Manchester concert attack leaves 22 dead, 59 wounded

Manchester concert attack left 22 dead and59 wounded Tuesday.

Police confirmed at least 22 people killed in the explosion at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena. Some of them were children, says a Guardian report.

Officers said 59 people were hospitalised and 60 treated by paramedics at the scene following the explosion, which hit the venue shortly after the concert finished. Twelve of those taken to hospital were aged under 16, North West ambulance service said.

Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed the incident as a terrorist attack as she addressed the media outside Downing Street. Police and security services believe they have identified the bomber, but no name has yet been announced, she said.

It is the deadliest terror attack to hit the UK since the 7/7 London bombings in July 2005.

Three victims have been named: 18-year-old Georgina Callander, eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos, and John Atkinson, 26.

Police say their priority is to establish whether the killer was acting alone or part of a network. The Guardian earlier established that the explosion was being investigated as a suspected suicide bombing.

In messages posted online, Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack.

The police say they believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device, which he detonated.

About 21,000 people are reported to have been at the concert at the time of the explosion.

Multiple witnesses said they heard an explosion, with one saying the blast shook the building, before “everyone screamed and tried to get out”.

A 23-year-old man was arrested on Tuesday morning in south Manchester, the police said. The Arndale shopping centre was evacuated and a man was arrested there but this was unconnected to the attacks, the police said.

Armed police carried out a controlled explosion at a house in Fallowfield and raided a block of flats in Whalley Range, both in south Manchester, on Tuesday morning as part of the investigation into the attacks.
