    Thus all which you call Sin, Destruction—in brief, Evil—that is my true element.

    Reminds me of the 'lone wolf' (ex private school) IRA man who went on a solo run in the UK letting off bombs. He published an account of his career recently.

    There's every possibility of a premature explosion. Static interference in his communication system between trigger and detonator or someone may simply have bumped into him. Considering the crowded environment.

    Remember also there's a blue suitcase somewhere that the bomber was seen wheeling through town. That too could contain a bomb and depending on the ''sophistication'' of the bomb maker and his plot, more than one device could be triggered.

    Anything is possible. Just thinking about that you'd hope the train station attached to the concert venue was thoroughly searched. Ideal place for a secondary device to be hidden..., say in a locker.
    Manchester reminds me of the Boston bombing in some ways. Young man with nail bomb in backpack in a surging, recreational crowd. No suicide belt. Known to the secret services /FBI. The difference is he was blown up.
