According to the The Telegraph, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins of the Greater Manchester Police identified the suicide-bomber as Adebi at a press update today.

“I can confirm that the man suspected of carrying out last night’s atrocity has been named as 22-year-old Salman Abedi. However, he has not yet been formally identified and I wouldn’t wish, therefore, to comment further,” Constable Hopkins said. “The priority remains to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network.”

The New York Times reported that neighbors said Abedi lived with his family in a house in Elsmore Road, in the Fallowfield district. The police raided the house on Tuesday afternoon, after setting off a controlled explosion to gain entry.
