British police investigating the Manchester Arena bombing have arrested a ninth man while continuing to search addresses associated with the bomber who killed 22 concert-goers.

Eight other men are in custody in connection with Monday's atrocity, with police and security agencies working to prevent further attacks.

Authorities are chasing possible links between the bomber, Salman Abedi, and militants in Manchester, elsewhere in Europe, and in North Africa and the Middle East.

Abedi was known to security services because of his radical views.

He reportedly was in contact with family members just before the attack.

The name of the man arrested in the early hours Friday and those of the eight others in custody were not released.

<![CDATA[Family of 3-Year-Old Killed in Alleged DUI Crash Speaks Out]]>Thu, 25 May 2017 23:52:36 -0700http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/dui+crash-0525.jpg

The family of a 3-year-old boy killed in a crash involving an alleged drunk driver is raising concerns about the way the case has been handled so far.

The woman accused in the crash, Yarenit Malihan of Pleasanton, turned herself in Monday and remains in custody. She’s the wife of an Alameda County Sheriff’s deputy.

The crash that killed Elijah Dunn happened on Sept. 9 on the shoulder of Interstate 680 in San Ramon. The boy’s grandfather wants to know why it took so long for Malihan to be charged.

Chuck Manoiki says it’s been agonizing waiting for the gears of justice to kick into action. The crash that killed his grandson was not the only incident Malihan was involved in over the past year.

"The first one with her own 10-year-old daughter in the car, then she kills my grandson, and then she goes and gets arrested for public intoxication," Manoiki said. "I mean, what else is it going to take?"

Three months before Elijah was killed, Malihan was arrested for DUI and accused of reckless endangerment of her own child. Earlier this month, she was arrested wandering the streets in Pleasanton.

Malihan was arraigned Tuesday on gross vehicular manslaughter and felony DUI charges in the I-680 crash. But Manoiki believes she should face more serious charges.

Meanwhile, the prosecutor in the case said it’s taken time for them to put together evidence for the charges because they want to make sure they have a solid case.

"We are making sure that we are making the right charging decisions as we proceed," a spokesman for the Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office said.

Manoiki says he remembers the last day he saw his grandson.

"I babysat him and my granddaughter the whole day," he recalled. "And when they went home, an hour later I get a phone call."

Malihan is being held on $3 million bond. Her next court date is June 16.

<![CDATA[Republican Wins House Seat, Apologizes After Assault Charge]]>Thu, 25 May 2017 22:40:23 -0700http://media.nbcbayarea.com/images/213*120/giGettyImages-687778650.jpg

Republican Greg Gianforte won Montana's special congressional election late Thursday barely a day after he was charged with misdemeanor assault following accusations that he body-slammed a reporter, NBC News reported.

Gianforte, a technology entrepreneur, claimed about a 50- to 44-percent lead over Democrat Rob Quist. 

"Tonight Montanans are sending a message to the Washington, D.C., establishment," Gianforte told a cheering crowd in Boseman after the results were announced.

Gianforte also addressed his assault charge and clash with a Guardian reporter. "I made a mistake, and I took an action that I can't take back," he said. "I should not have treated that reporter that way ... I am sorry."
