The sister of suicide bomber Salman Abedi has revealed what she claims is the motivation behind the evil attack at Ariana Grande's Manchester concert.
Despite her brother murdering 22 innocent concert goers - including children - and maiming many more, Jomana Abedi, 18, told the Wall Street Journal that he was 'kind and loving', and claimed to be surprised he carried out the evil attack.
Jomana said she thinks her brother was driven by what he perceived to be revenge, by murdering the young concert goers.
“I think he saw children - Muslim children - dying everywhere, and wanted revenge," she said, before appearing to suggest that only God could judge what he did.
“He saw the explosives America drops on children in Syria, and he wanted to revenge. Whether he got that is between him and God.”
Her comments have been slammed by Manchester residents, with Mark Session telling The Mirror, 'There is no justification for the taking of a child's life.
"It is sick to justify the arena bombing in such a way. It is abhorrent in fact.
"There is no place for her comments."
Abdul Wahab Hafidah, of Libyan descent, died after he was run down by a car and then stabbed in Manchester.
“I remember Salman at his funeral vowing revenge,” the friend said.
