A man is being held after an attempted terror attack at America’s biggest and busiest bus terminal, officials say.
“Terrorists won’t win. We are New Yorkers,” said Mayor Bill De Blasio after a blast in an underpass at the Port Authority terminal today.
Mr. De Blasio said the suspect was believed to have acted alone.
New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill in giving an update on the investigation said Police identify 27-year-old Akayed Ullah as the suspect who detonated an improvised explosive device in Manhattan.
The suspect who was wounded is reported to have had a pipe bomb strapped to his body when it detonated at the start of the morning rush hour, injuring about three other persons in the vicinity.
