Icelandic Prime Minister Bjarni Benediktsson has offered his condolences to the British public following the attack in Manchester last night which killed 22 people and left 50 injured. 

"Nothing can explain the will to attack innocent people, children, teenagers and their parents, as was so cruelly done in Manchester last night. No words can express the extent of the consequences," writes Benediktsson. 

President of Iceland, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson has sent a formal letter of condolences to Queen Elizabeth.
