LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – The younger brother of the suicide bomber who killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester will be kept in custody following a bail hearing, according to The Associated Press.

Hashem Abedi reportedly appeared at Oxford Crown Court on Monday via video-link from Belmarsh Prison in southeast London.

Judge Nigel Sweeney ordered the 22-year-old to be placed in custody before a preliminary court hearing at the Old Bailey in London or in Oxford on July 30, reports AP.

Abedi, who faces almost two dozen counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, and one count of conspiracy to cause explosions, is suspected of helping to plan the attack.
