One of Manchester’s largest mosques has reportedly refused its funeral service for the remains of Salman Abedi.
According to The Times, Manchester Central Mosque said its executive committee had agreed not to carry out Abedi’s burial rights and funeral service.
The decision came as it was alleged that the authorities Manchester were doing “everything in their power” to make sure Abedi’s remains will not be buried within the city.
A source told the Manchester Evening News the suicide bomber’s body was being kept in a separate morgue from the victims of last Monday’s attack.
The final decision for what happens to Abedi’s body will be made by the coroner, according to the M.E.N.
Yesterday, police said Abedi most likely brought the essential bomb components himself and that most of his actions were carried out alone.
Russ Jackson, head of the North West Counter Terrorism Unit said: “Our enquiries show Abedi himself made most of the purchases of the core components and what is becoming apparent is that many of his movements and actions have been carried out alone during the four days from him landing in the country and committing this awful attack.
“We have also have a good understanding of the likely component parts of the bomb and where these came from.”
