Bomb explodes in NYC, man wearing wires arrested

Postby Trumptonium » Mon Dec 11, 2017 6:28 am

Commuters said they felt a blast in the Subway tunnels underneath the Port Authority Bus Terminal around 6:30am. The bus terminal is a major transit hub for people commuting into the city by bus from New Jersey, and is located just a block from Times Square.

Police have one man in custody, who had an explosive device on him. The FDNY said they are investigating the possibility of it being a terror attack.

Around 7. Got on a train, doors closed, heard a boom, train sat for 45 seconds and then pulled out. Probably last subway train out of the port authority for a while.

Glad you’re okay. It’s likely a terrorist attack just assuming from the boom and the man with an explosive device.

The suspect is the one injured, the bomb exploded prematurely. Rumour 8s he had another bomb on him.

Also according to most recent info by NYPD:
https://twitter.com/NYPDnews/status/940213258878939138
Update regarding explosion at 42nd St and 8th Ave, in subway: One male suspect is in custody. No injuries other than suspect at this time. Avoid the area. Subways bypassing #PortAuthority and Times Square Stations. Info is preliminary.

I didn't see the arrest, I only heard the explosion, and if the current rumor is true, (bomb in passenger walkway). I was a 75 yards away and on a different level.

Only the fact that it is the most populated city in the United States, also, it seems that terror attacks are becoming more frequent in America in the first place.

Not expected terrorists to target one of the largest cities in the US seems a little unreasonable, does it? And who else would detonate a bomb in a subway? A demolition crew?

Well New York is sady a very tempting target for a terrorist attack what with it being one if the largest financial centers in the the US, a cultural icon, it being heavily populated, and being the city where one of the most infamous terror attacks in the 21st century occurred. It wasn't a question of if there is going to be a terror attack but when.

Possibility that it was a pipe bomb that detonated prematurely before the guy could plant it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-42312293
US media quote unnamed officials as saying that the man had a pipe bomb strapped to his body when it detonated at the height of the morning rush hour.
