DUBAI: US pop star Ariana Grande has paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing on the fourth anniversary of the 2017 attack, which claimed the lives of 22 victims.

“Although grief is ever present and our relationship to it is constantly evolving and expressing itself in different ways every day, year round... I know that this anniversary will never be an easy one,” Grande wrote on her Instagram story. “Please know that I am thinking of you today. Manchester, my heart is with you today and always.”

On May 22, 2017, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive device at a concert held by Grande. More than 800 people were wounded at the event, which was primarily attended by teenagers, pre-teens and their parents.

On her Instagram story, the singer also shared an image with the names of the 22 people who were killed in the bombing.
