London embassy checking whether Armenians hurt in Manchester

The Armenian embassy in London is checking whether there are any Armenian nationals or citizens among casualties in the deadly attack in Manchester, foreign ministry spokesman Tigran Balayan said.

At least 22 concert-goers were killed on Monday and around 60 injured in what was being treated as a terror attack when an explosion hit the Manchester Arena at the end of a pop show.

According to some media reports, the Islamic State has claimed the attack.
