Hope no one is hurt.
From NY Post:
Several people were injured Monday morning when a device exploded at the Port Authority bus terminal on 42nd Street, according to law enforcement sources.
One person is in custody after his device partially detonated inside a tunnel, sources told The Post.
Police and firefighters have responded to the scene, where the bomb squad also has been deployed.
The NYC Office of Emergency Management said commuters should expect delays.
There was no immediate word on what prompted the response between Eighth and Ninth avenues.
This a developing story.
Arrested person may be bomb maker injured when device partially detonated.
Taliban bomb makers weren’t very smart either, as this video proves.
Has clock boy graduated?
Once again the foreign press is on top of the story while our fake news MSM is busy concocting BS.
Probably those White Nationalists again.
Clock boy, what a scam that was all so daddy could sue the school.
That’s the second time a terrorist tried to blow up people in NYC but failed because the bomb malfunctioned, yet the idiots in that city keep electing sanctuary city fanatics like Bloomberg and DeBlasio for Mayor, makes me wonder who is more suicidal: The terrorists or the voters.
Islam needs to be deported.
Mainly New Jersey was affected.
And New Years right around the corner.
Keep letting these animals in.
What an odd choice of words. Tourists riding subways at rush hour? Not bloody likely. Why would a reporter say tourists? Because NYers would never be terrified?
A trivial point, to be sure, but journalists, man. They have more ways to cast suspicions on their reporting. Why say tourists? Seriously.
Even better, the only one hurt was the bomber and he lived through it.
Sorry, but history has shown that these people are never going to play nice. I know there are many Christians who feel otherwise, but I don't see Islam being compatible with *any* other group on this planet.
Good Lord. Watched the next YT video. The casual reaction from our soldier somewhat made me laugh. Its obvious they are not stampeding over this.
And New Yorkers put their lives on the line for the lies of Cuomo and DeBlabbio.
I just don’t get it. If any city should have woken up after 9/11/2001, it should have been NYC.
What numbskull describes in their published Title an “enormous” blast when it’s just a detonator cap or small pipe bomb?!
If this really was a stampeding herd of tourists, I have confirmation that tourists come to see famous spots are cattle. Having lived in many a famous spot and had a bellyful of tourists, this hardly surprises.
