The brother of the Manchester Arena bomber has been jailed for at least 55 years for the murders of 22 people.

Hashem Abedi helped his older sibling, Salman, to plan the atrocity that killed 22 men, women and children and injured hundreds more on 22 May 2017.

He was convicted after a court heard he was “just as guilty” as his brother, who detonated the bomb at the end of an Ariana Grande concert.

Abedi, 23, refused to leave his cell at the Old Bailey for the sentencing.

Mr Justice Jeremy Baker told the court “the stark reality is, these were atrocious crimes. Large in scale, deadly in intent, appalling in their consequences”.

“The despair and desolation of the bereaved families has been palpable,” he added.
