What kind of sick pleasure did they get by killing innocent little lives?

Fourteen-year-olds, Sorrel Leczkowski and Nell Jones, who were watching the US singer on crutches, were both murdered in cold blood when 22-year-old terrorist Salman Abedi detonated an explosive packed with nuts and bolts at the Manchester Arena.
