Officials release the photo of a man wanted in connection to the Saturday bombing in Manhattan that injured 29 people, while New York and New Jersey police look for links between that attack and others across the river. Diane Hodges reports.
Suspects sought in N.Y. attack, N.J. bomb probe
New York police say they want to talk to Ahmad Khan Rahami, in connection with Saturday’s bombing in the Chelsea district of Manhattan.
A number of people have been taken into custody, while across the river in New Jersey, police are still combing the area around a train station where five potential bombs were discovered overnight.
The devices were found in a backpack left in a trash can near a train station and a bar in Elizabeth, New Jersey, just 15 miles from Manhattan.
One of the devices blew up early Monday morning when a robot tried to disable it. No one was hurt in the explosion.
However, the Chelsea pressure-cooker bomb packed with shrapnel wounded 29 people. And earlier in the day a pipe bomb exploded on along the route of a New Jersey charity run. No one was hurt in that incident.
Investigators are probing the links between the attacks.
Officials say the bombings were deliberate, criminal acts, but they’ve stopped short of calling them acts of terrorism, until more evidence is uncovered.
