Jurors were shown the note which was left in the third-floor one-bedroom flat in Granby House rented by Salman Abedi after he returned from Libya four days before the bombing.

It read: "Sorry if there is anything missing in the apartment or any mess made. The extra 150 and the rest of the weeks rent on cover can hopefully cover."

Did the CIA’s Dr. Frank Olson Jump to His Death or Was He Pushed?

  Did the CIA’s Dr. Frank Olson Jump to His Death or Was He Pushed? Family tragedy led me to write The Coldest Warrior. My uncle Frank Olson died sometime around 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 28, 1953 when he “jumped or fell” from his room on the 13th floor of the Statler Hotel in New York City. Family tragedy led me to write The Coldest Warrior.

It was signed "Sam", with quotation marks, the name Abedi had given to the landlady when she rented him the flat.

Abedi, 22, used the false name "Sam Abdi" to rent the property from Ruth Bain, agreeing to pay £750 for a two-week short-term stay.

Prosecutors said Abedi and his younger brother Hashem used various addresses, vehicles and mobile phones to organise, stockpile and store components for the bomb.

The brothers left their family home in Elsmore Road, Fallowfield, in April on one-way tickets, accompanied by their parents. But Salman returned, alone, on 18 May, jurors were told.
