As law enforcement attempts to put together the puzzle of last night's hideous terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, news organizations are now beginning to release the names of some of the victims. Meanwhile, Theresa May has issued statements condemning the actions of the terrorist.

According to The GuardianMay has described the bombing as “absolutely callous” and "a horrendous tragedy" and has assured citizens that police will be looking into concerts into the future to figure out how to make them safer. "We must ensure our values prevail," she said.

The youngest victim of the attack has been identified as 8-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos. 

"Saffie was simply a beautiful little girl in every aspect of the word. She was loved by everyone and her warmth and kindness will be remembered fondly. Saffie was quiet and unassuming with a creative flair," said Chris Upton, the headteacher at Tarleton Community primary school, where Saffie was a student.

Georgina Callander, 18, has been named as another victim, according to BBC. Callander had been studying health and social care at Runshaw College.

"Our deepest sympathies, thoughts and prayers go out to all of Georgina's family, friends, and all of those affected by this loss," said the school.

"We are offering all available support possible at this tragic time, including counselling with our dedicated student support team."

20 others died along with Callander and Roussos and more than 50 individuals were injured.
