LONDON  - United States President Donald Trump told British Prime Minister Theresa May that Americans stood with the United Kingdom after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at a concert in the northern English town of Manchester.

The two leaders agreed during a telephone call that the attack was "particularly wanton and depraved," the White House said in a statement on Tuesday."The President reassured the Prime Minister that Americans stand with the people of the United Kingdom and that our resolve will never waiver in the face of terrorism," the White House said.



The suicide bomber struck late on Monday evening as people began leaving a concert given by Ariana Grande, a US singer who attracts a large number of young fans.

Trump called May from Jerusalem, where he was meeting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
