    The threat came on the heels of a May 22 bombing at a Grande performance in Manchester, England, that killed 22 people and injured dozens more.

    Authorities in Costa Rica said they have released the 22-year-old Colombian man accused of threatening an attack at a concert by pop singer Ariana Grande.

    The man was released on parole Sunday night, but is not allowed to leave the country until the investigation ends, Costa Rican prosecutors said in a statement.

    The threat was written in Arabic and posted online using a social media account. Officials have said the man's family name is Caicedo Lopez, the prosecutor's office said.
