MANCHESTER, England  An explosion that may have been a suicide bombing
killed at least 19 people Monday night and wounded dozens at an Ariana
Grande concert filled with adoring adolescent fans in what police were
treating as a terrorist attack.

.

Panic and mayhem seized the crowd at the Manchester Arena as the blast
reverberated through the building, just as the show was ending and pink
balloons were dropping from the rafters in a signature flourish by Ms.
Grande, a 23-year-old pop star on an international tour.

.

Traumatized concertgoers  including children separated from parents
screamed and fled in what appeared to be the deadliest case of terrorism
in Britain since the 2005 London subway bombings.

.

Prime Minister Theresa May said her thoughts were with the victims and
their families in what is being treated by the police as an appalling
terrorist attack.

.

There was no immediate word from the police on the precise cause of the
blast but unconfirmed reports said it was possibly a suicide bomber who
had detonated a nail-filled explosive device.

.

The scene immediately evoked the terrorist attacks in Paris in November
2015, which included a deadly assault inside the Bataclan concert arena
where the Eagles of Death Metal had been playing. But unlike the Bataclan
victims, the Manchester concert was filled with young teen-agers.

.

This is currently being treated as a terrorist incident until the police
know otherwise, the Manchester police said in a Twitter post.

.

People at the concert at the Manchester Arena said they had heard what
sounded like explosions at the end of the show, around 10:30 p.m.

At least one explosion went off in the foyer of the arena, according to
the British Transport Police, the force that protects Victoria Station,
the train terminus next to the arena. The terminal was evacuated.

.

Early Tuesday morning, Sky News reported that a bomb disposal team had
arrived on the scene as part of the investigation and that the security
cordon around the arena had been widened.

.

Gary Walker, who was at the show with his wife and two daughters, said he
heard a massive bang and saw a flash just as the concert concluded. He
turned and realized that his wife had been hurt. Mr. Walker, who is from
the northern city of Leeds, said she had a stomach wound and possibly a
broken leg. He said he lay down with her and saw metal nuts on the floor.

.

Ms. Walker was taken to a hospital, and Mr. Walker was standing with his
daughters at Deansgate, the main shopping street in Manchester.

.

Another concertgoer, Sasina Akhtar, told The Manchester Evening News that
there had been an explosion at the back of the arena after the last song.
We saw young girls with blood on them, she said. Everyone was screaming,
and people were running.

At least 19 people were killed and more than 50 injured in an explosion at
the end of a concert by US singer Ariana Grande in Manchester on Monday
and two US officials said a suicide bomber was suspected.

.

Prime Minister Theresa May said the incident was being treated as a
terrorist attack. If confirmed, it would be the deadliest militant assault
on Britain since four British Muslims killed 52 people in suicide bombings
on London's transport system in July 2005.

.

Police responded to reports of an explosion shortly after 9:35 pm at the
arena, which has a capacity for 21,000 people, and where the US singer had
been performing to an audience that included many children.

.

A witness who attended the concert said she felt a huge blast as she was
leaving the arena, followed by screaming and a rush by thousands of people
trying to escape the building.

.

A video posted on Twitter showed fans, many of them young, screaming and
running from the venue. Dozens of parents frantically searched for their
children, posting photos and pleading for information on social media.

.

"We were making our way out and when we were right by the door there was a
massive explosion and everybody was screaming," concertgoer Catherine
Macfarlane told Reuters.

.

"It was a huge explosion - you could feel it in your chest. It was
chaotic. Everybody was running and screaming and just trying to get out."

A spokesman for Ariana Grande, 23, said the singer was "okay".

.

May, who faces an election in two and a half weeks, said her thoughts were
with the victims and their families.

.

"We are working to establish the full details of what is being treated by
the police as an appalling terrorist attack," she said in a statement.
"All our thoughts are with the victims and the families of those who have
been affected."
