Explosion in New York leaves dozens injured
The explosion involved a pressure cooker in the Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea Saturday night.
At a news conference before the discovery of a second device, Mayor Bill de Blasio said the explosion injured at least 29 people but that there was no specific terrorist threat.
A device believed to be a pressure cooker was subsequently found on West 27th Street, four blocks from the initial blast on West 23rd, according to New York Police Department. The NYPD tweeted at about 2:24 a.m. ET Sunday that, “The suspicious device on West 27 Street in Chelsea has been safely removed by the NYPD Bomb Squad.”
“There is no specific and credible threat to New York City from any terror organization,” de Blasio said at a news conference late Saturday night.
However, early indications were that the attack was intentional, de Blasio said.
