Six UC Santa Barbara students studying abroad at the University of Manchester are safe following a bombing in Manchester on Monday night, UCSB spokespeople confirmed Tuesday.
The suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester Arena last night killed 22 people and injured 59 others, the New York Times reported — the deadliest terrorist attack in Britain since 2005. The bombing suspect died in the blast, according to the New York Times.
Juan Campo, director of the UCSB Education Abroad Program, said the six UCSB students in Manchester this quarter are “all safe and accounted for.”
UCSB Spokesperson Andrea Estrada said no UC students currently abroad in Manchester were harmed during Monday’s bombing.
The University of Manchester campus is less than three miles from Manchester Arena, according to Google Maps.
