Her family said their "darling Eilidh" was "vivacious and full of fun".

On Wednesday, Israel said it had altered information-sharing protocols with the USA after President Donald Trump passed on intelligence by their informant concerning the Islamic State to Russian Federation, possibly endangering his life.

Although British authorities asked members of Salman Abedi's southern Manchester community not to speak to the media, people who knew the family said on Wednesday that Abedi cared for his parents.
