Pope Francis has sent a telegram condemning the Manchester Arena attack and expressing his condolences in light of the "injury and tragic loss of life".
"His Holiness Pope Francis was deeply saddened to learn of the injury and tragic loss of life caused by the barbaric attack in Manchester and he expresses his heartfelt solidarity with all those affected by this senseless act of violence.
He commends the generous efforts of the emergency and security personnel, and offers the assurance of his prayers for the injured, and for all who have died.
Mindful in a particular way of those children and young people who have lost their lives, and of their grieving families, Pope Francis invokes God’s blessings of peace, healing and strength upon the nation."
Cardinal Nichols has also commented on the Manchester atrocity.
"My shock and dismay at the horrendous killing of young and innocent people in the Manchester Arena, last night, is I know, shared by all people of good will.
I know too that Catholics and many others will be praying earnestly for those who have been killed, for the bereaved and for grieving loved ones.
We pray in support of all those working so hard in response to this tragedy; the police and security forces, hospital staff, neighbours and friends and for all the people of Manchester.
May God, in His mercy, strengthen and sustain us and keep us firmly united in the face of all evil."
