Muslim man, Jewish woman pray together at vigil after Manchester attack

Posted May 26

Twenty-two people died and 59 others were injured in a bombing at the Manchester Arena earlier this week.

The incident, which happened after an Ariana Grande concert, was treated as a terrorist threat, BBC reported. So far, five people have been arrested in the United Kingdom, including the brother of the suicide bomber, Salman Abedi. Abedi's younger brother, Hashim, was arrested in Tripoli, Libya, according to the Associated Press.

In the wake of the attack, photos of the incident went viral across the internet. One video shows people rushing out of the arena at the time of the explosion.

CNN recently shared a video that shows a Muslim man and Jewish woman praying together in the wake of the attack.

As The Telegraph reported, Renee Rachel Black and Sadiq Patel comforted each other during a vigil, one of several that were held throughout England.

“Tuesday's vigil brought together representatives of Manchester's Muslim, Christian, Jewish and Sikh communities in a show of defiance and unity,” Reuters reported.
