(RNN) - AT&T is waiving charges for calls to Manchester, England, from May 22 to 24.

The company made the announcement Tuesday, a day after 22 people were killed and 59 injured at a concert by American singer Ariana Grande.

The credits include "landline, texting and mobility (postpaid and GoPhone) calls," the company's news release said. 

"As with any emergency, text messaging is recommended due to the possibility of network congestion in the local area," the company said.
