Manchester Arena bomber’s brother, 22, is granted legal aid to fight his murder charges while families of the 22 victims continue to be denied cash

A pre-inquest hearing concerning the May 2017 Manchester Arena bombing has revealed that the brother of the bomber, who bought some of the bomb-making supplies, has been given legal aid for the upcoming inquest, which victims’ relatives have been denied.

Hashem Abedi, 22, will go to trial accused of 22 counts of murder with attorneys funded by taxpayers.

Families of victims will not receive funds, reports Lara Keay for the Daily Mail.

The families of those killed in the terrorist attack on London Bridge were also denied state legal funding.
