Report: Manchester Bomber's Father Former al-Qaeda Affiliate Member, Claims Second Son Arrested in UK - Breitbart

Report: Manchester Bomber's Father Former al-Qaeda Affiliate Member, Claims Second Son Arrested in UK - Breitbart: A former Libyan security official says the father of the alleged Manchester arena bomber was allegedly member of a former al-Qaida-backed group in Libya.

Former Libyan security official Abdel-Basit Haroun said Wednesday he personally knew Ramadan Abedi, the father of Salman Abedi, and that the elder Abedi was a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting group in the 1990s. The group had links to al-Qaida.

Although the LIFG disbanded, Haroun says the father belongs to the Salafi Jihadi movement, the most extreme sect of Salafism and from which al-Qaida and the Islamic State group hail.
