MANCHESTER, England Britons faced stepped-up security, authorities pushed forward with raids they said were uncovering key evidence and a trans-Atlantic rift opened Thursday in the aftermath of a deadly concert bombing.
Officials are examining Abedi's trips to Libya as they piece together his allegiances and try to foil any new potential threats.
Fifteen-year-old Millie Robson, wearing one of Grande's T-shirts, told the queen she had won VIP tickets to the pop star's concert. "It is absolutely understandable the distress and upset this has caused those families, who are already suffering as everybody can imagine".
Almost 3,800 soldiers have been deployed on Britain's streets, taking on guard duties at sites such as Buckingham Palace and Downing Street to free up police to focus on patrols and investigation, Rudd told the BBC. The sixth arrest was of a female suspect.
The arrests include the attacker's older brother, Ismail Abedi. Al-Libi's wife told the AP that she went to college in Tripoli with the elder Abedi's wife and that the two women also lived together in the United Kingdom before they returned t Libya.More news: Obama-era rule on financial advisers to go forward, for now
"When arrested, the man was carrying a package which we are now assessing".
The rest of Abedi's family is also thought to be in Libya.
"It's very clear that this is a network we are investigating", Ian Hopkins, Greater Manchester Chief Constable, commented. On that call, he purportedly told his mother: "Forgive me", said Ahmed bin Salem, a spokesman for the Special Deterrent Force. "There's extensive investigation going on and activity taking place across Greater Manchester, as we speak".
An emerging portrait of the alleged bomber remained complicated by competing assessments over whether Abedi held views that had sparked concern and attention before the bombing.
Police on Tuesday raided his house, using a controlled explosion to blast down the door.

Born in Manchester to Libyan parents, the 22-year-old had recently returned from Libya, according to interior minister Amber Rudd.
Lapan said the Homeland Security Department has shared some information about Abedi's travel with the British government, but declined to offer specifics. Abedi's father was allegedly a member of the al-Qaida-backed Libyan Islamic Fighting group in the 1990s - a claim he denies.
Police are holding eight people in connection with the attack on a packed concert hall, which killed 22 people. The hospital said 12 children were still being treated there.
Many of those still hospitalised had serious wounds that will require "very long term care and support in terms of their recovery", Rouse said. The National Health Service said 75 people were hospitalized.
Andy Burnham, Manchester's mayor, said: "The people of Manchester are bigger than that, they are better than that". "We can't let the terrorists win by dissuading us from going about our normal business".More news: Federal judge tosses out life sentences for DC sniper Malvo
