Man Arrested After Threatening To Attack Ariana Grande Concert In Costa Rica

Authorities in Costa Rica have arrested a Colombian man suspected of threatening to stage an attack at an Ariana Grande concert.

The threat comes after suicide bomber Salman Abedi detonated a home-made device at the US pop star’s show at Manchester Arena in May, killing 22 people including seven children.

Costa Rican prosecutors said in a statement that the suspect was a Colombian man of 22, who made the threats online.

The concert in the city of Alajuela, Costa Rica, went ahead as scheduled on Sunday. Fans had to pass through three security checks for Sunday’s gig.

I love you, Costa Rica 🌙
