Ramadan Abedi fled Gaddafi regime in 1990s but fought during Libyan revolution in 2011, says fellow fighter
The father of Salman Abedi, the Manchester Arena suicide bomber, fought against the Gaddafi regime with a group that was designated a terrorist organisation by the US, according to a man who says he fought alongside him.
Salman Abedi, 22, who was known to the British security services, is thought to have returned from Libya as recently as this week. His parents, Ramadan Abedi and Samia Tabbal, who escaped the Gaddafi regime in the early 1990s and fled to the UK, now live in the Libyan capital, Tripoli.
We were in the same group over there – we called ourselves the Manchester fighters – we even had our own logo
