On Monday evening suicide bomber Salman Abedi (22) carried out his terrorist intentions at the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena. Since the attack, 22 people have been declared dead. Among the deceased are children as young as eight years old. Nearly 60 people were treated for injuries ranging from mild to extreme. Theresa May, the Prime Minister of Britain, raised Britain’s terror threat level from severe to critical and said the military could be deployed to support armed police officers at public events.
While investigators try to piece the attack together, online conspirators believe they have uncovered a chilling pattern of how terrorists choose their attacks. What’s more is that they have predicted that the next attack will happen on 22 July. Previous acts of terrorism have occurred on the 22nd March, May and July over the past few years. Other terrorist attacks to have occurred on these dates were in Munich on July, 22 2016, Brussels on March, 22 2016, the murder Lee Rigby on May 22, 2013, and in Norway on July 22, 2011.
To social media users, it is considered too much of a coincidence that the attacks all occurred on the 22nd:
