Terror attacks now brought to you by the British taxpayer. From the Telegraph:

Money passage:

The Manchester suicide bomber used taxpayer-funded student loans and benefits to bankroll the terror plot, police believe.

Salman Abedi is understood to have received thousands of pounds in state funding in the run up to Monday’s atrocity even while he was overseas receiving bomb-making training.

Police are investigating Abedi’s finances, including how he paid for frequent trips to Libya where he is thought to have been taught to make bombs at a jihadist training camp.

In other news, investigators are alleging that Abedi’s brother in Libya had prior knowledge of the attack:

Taxpayers probably paid for his call to his brother, too.
