The residents of Manchester have united to mourn and sympathise with victims of the attack in the city of Manchester in the United Kingdom.

According to an eyewitness reporter from Manchester, many people are more worried that some victims were under the age of 16.

Abigail Nkrumah Nsuapim said even though “the people who were affected were predominantly white, the fact that there were children has had a great effect on all of us.”
