Manchester Mosques Are 'Refusing To Bury Salman Abedi’s Body'

Manchester Mosques Are 'Refusing To Bury Salman Abedi’s Body'

The body of Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi, is currently being kept in a morgue outside the city as councils, funeral directors and Mosques reportedly refuse to deal with him.

A Manchester City Council spokesperson told LADbible: "Under no circumstances would we allow the body of the perpetrator of the heinous attack on Manchester Arena to be buried or cremated in Manchester."

According to the Manchester Evening News, a source said that his body has never been kept in the same area as that of his 22 victims.

They added: "Just like Ian Brady, every effort is going in to making sure that there is not a chance Abedi can be buried or cremated in Greater Manchester."

A spokesperson from Manchester Central Mosque told the Times that they 'would not have anything to do with Abedi'. They added that their executive committee had met and agreed not to inter the remains of Abedi if his family made a request.

An inquest still needs to be held, and after that a decision about what to do with Abedi's remains will be down to the coroner.

22 people lost their lives after an explosion rocked the concert hall while thousands of people were attending a concert by American pop star Ariana Grande.

At the time, police chief Ian Hopkins said in a statement that Abedi died when detonating an improvised explosive device in the attack.

He added: "The priority remains to establish whether [Abedi] was acting alone or as part of a network."
