Hashem Abedi, the brother of the Manchester bomber, Salman Abedi has been found guilty of the murder of 22 people and helping to plan one of the deadliest terror attacks the UK has ever seen. During the trial, it emerged that Hashem Abeid had stood shoulder to shoulder with his brother, acting as quartermaster, chauffeur and technician and sharing a common goal to kill and maim as many people as possible in the attack after an Ariana Grande concert.

During the six-week trial, one of the biggest terror trials ever held on UK soil, the jury were told that the brothers began showing signs of radicalisation after their parents returned to Libya, planning the attack when they were living alone in their family home in south Manchester.
