“This is not your fault”: Fans rally around Ariana Grande

American pop singer Ariana Grande expressed sorrow after a bomb blast killed at least 22 people — many younger than 18 — at her concert in Manchester Monday night, the deadliest terror attack in the United Kingdom since 2005.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the suicide-bomb attack that killed children as young as 8. At least 59 others have been injured.

Authorities are working to identify the victims, and people are using the hashtags #Manchester and #MissingInManchester in attempts to locate survivors.

Grande said she was “broken” and “so so sorry.”

But fans and others rallied around Grande and her fans at the Manchester show to show solidarity with the 23-year-old singer, who is reportedly physically OK, starting the hashtag #ThisIsNotYourFaultAriana.

“We mourn the lives of children and loved ones taken by this cowardly act,” Grande’s manager Scooter Braun said in a statement. “We ask all of you to hold the victims, their families, and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.”
