BREAKING: Terrorist Explosion at Time Square Subway

915

There are reports of a terror attack in New York City, after an explosion was felt Monday morning in a Subway station near Times Square.
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.
While the suspect has not been identified by name, former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC’s Morning Joe that he’s a man in his 20s, possibly from Bangladesh.

He added that the suspect ‘supposedly was setting the device off in the name of ISIS’ and that it was ‘definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended’.
