"Sister reveals motives of Manchester massacre monster: Salman Abedi 'wanted revenge for British-Libyan friend killed in racist attack and justice for Syrian children killed by America
Bomber's sister Jomana Abedi, 18, described older brother as kind and loving
She said Salman Abedi was likely driven to murder what he saw as injustices
Family friend alleged that it was murder of Abedi's friend that caused him to kill
The teenager was run over and stabbed in Manchester last year
The Manchester bomber's sister has claimed he was driven to murder because he wanted revenge for 'the explosives America drops on children in Syria'.
Jomana Abedi, 18, described her older brother Salman as kind and loving and said she was surprised that he had detonated a suicide bomb, killing 22 people after an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena on Monday.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal she said she thought he was driven by what he saw as injustices.
'I think he saw children—Muslim children—dying everywhere, and wanted revenge', Miss Abedi told the paper.
'He saw the explosives America drops on children in Syria, and he wanted revenge. Whether he got that is between him and God,' she added.
A family friend also alleged that it was the murder of Abedi's teenage friend that caused him to kill.
The teenager was run over and stabbed in Manchester in May 2016 in what is believed to have been a gangland killing.
An unnamed family friend said Abedi was 'vowing revenge' at the funeral and he viewed the murder as a hate crime."
