Following the Monday terror attack in Manchester, England, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that there is no credible threat to American music venues.
According to the DHS, security could be heightened in the U.S. around public areas and at events.
“We stand ready to assist our friends and allies in the U.K. in all ways necessary as they investigate and recover from this incident,” the DHS statement said.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by this incident.”
At a press conference late Monday, Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Ian Hopkins confirmed that British authorities are collaborating with national agencies and intelligence officials to investigate the incident.
Hopkins said that officials “are currently treating this as a terrorist incident until we have further information” and added that authorities are working with “national counter terrorism policing network and U.K. intelligence partners.”
