Salman Abedi, the Manchester terrorist who set off a suicide bomb at an Ariana Grande show that killed 22 people and injured scores of young concertgoers, is believed to have traveled to Libya and Syria prior to the attack.
A school friend told The Times that Abedi “went to Libya three weeks ago and came back, like, days ago.”
Officials have been trying to determine if the Manchester bomber had gone to Libya to receive jihad training.
French interior minister Gerard Collomb, cited British intelligence when he reported that Abedi “probably” traveled to Syria as well.
Collomb added that the suicide bomber had “proven” links to ISIS.

The man British police say blew himself up as a packed concert was letting out in Manchester, England, Monday night is believed to have traveled to Syria and had “proven” links with the Islamic State terror network.
British and French intelligence have information that Salman Abedi, 22, had been to Syria, although it was unclear if he was part of a larger network of attackers, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb said Wednesday.
It also was reported the attacker had recently returned to the U.K. from Libya days before the attack, according to his friends.
Hillary Clinton has been credited by numerous analysts with spurring the rise of ISIS in Libya through her pursuit of regime change. One source with knowledge of negotiations between Libya and the U.S., claimed that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton nixed a deal that would have seen democratic elections in the war-torn country and prevented the rise of ISIS
Even liberal Democrat Bernie Sanders accused Clinton of encouraging the rise of ISIS in Libya.
“She was proud to have been involved in regime change in Libya, with Gaddafi, without worrying, I think, about what happened the day after and the kind of instability and the rise of Isis that we have seen in Libya,” Sanders charged.
Parents of suicide bomber Salman Abedi were Libyan refugees.
