‘Possible pipe bomb explodes’ at New York’s Port Authority: Suspect ‘wearing wires’ is taken into custody


(From The Daily Mail)

Commuters said they felt a blast in the Subway tunnels underneath the Port Authority Bus Terminal around 7:30am. The bus terminal is a major transit hub for people commuting to and from New Jersey by bus, and is located just a block from Times Square.

Police have taken one man into custody, who was carrying a pipe bomb with a battery back, a source told the New York Post.  He was injured when the bomb malfunctioned, but is alive and in stable condition, according to the FDNY.

Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that the suspect is a man in his 20s, possibly from Bangladesh ‘who suppossedly was setting the device off in the name of ISIS’.
