    The UK government is warning the US against leaking further details from the investigation into the Manchester bombing.

    British police say the leaks are undermining their inquiry into a network linked to the alleged suicide bomber - Salman Abedi.

    The New York Times has published photographs said to show fragments of what has been described as a sophisticated device used in the attack.

    Seven people have now been arrested in the UK in connection with the bombing, which killed 22 people and injured 64 others on Monday.

    Al Jazeera's Rob Matheson reports from Manchester.
