British police continue series of raids across Manchester

The head of Manchester police says raids and searches across the city have uncovered items believed important to the investigation into the bombing at Manchester Arena.
    
Chief Constable Ian Hopkins added that the eight suspects detained so far were ``significant'' arrests, without elaborating. He said Thursday the searches will take several more days to complete.
    
Police have swooped in on multiple addresses in the city since Tuesday and those arrested include bomber Salman Abedi's brother.
    
Commenting on the leaking of evidence from the investigation to the New York Times, Hopkins said it was ``absolutely understandable'' that this caused ``much distress'' to families of victims already suffering with their loss.
