Port Authority Explosion: What We Know About Suspect Akayed Ullah

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio addressing the media persons after the attack

Police have a 27-year-old suspect identified as Akayed Ullah, in custody, Time reported.

Ullah was injured in the blast and three others nearby also suffered minor injuries.

New York Police Commissioner James O'Neill said Ullah had a crude improvised explosive device strapped to his body with Velcro and zip ties.

President Trump was briefed on the incident Monday, according to the White House, and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, D, was briefed as well, his office reported. The source says "it did not fully detonate which possibly caused the injury".

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said: "This is New York. And we show that a society of many backgrounds and many faiths can work".

"The terrorists want to undermine that". (NTD Television) An armored vehicle staged outside the Port Authority Bus Terminal on December 11, 2017, in New York City. That license, which was not for a New York City cab, but instead for a so-called "for-hire" vehicle, lapsed in March 2015.

Images taken after the attempted attack show Ullah in the subway, curled in the foetal position with his exposed stomach blackened.


Ullah arrived in the United States in February of 2011 and had a visa, local media is reporting.

"When you hear about a bomb in the subway station, which is in many ways one of our worst nightmares, the reality turns out better than the initial expectation and fear", he told reporters.

Authorities are investigating the incident as a possible "lone wolf" attack based on the rudimentary construction of the device, reports CBS New York.

Bus service to and from the bus terminal is being diverted to Secaucus and Newark Penn Station, where riders can catch trains.

SaharaReporters observed that there was an increased presence of police officers in Midtown Manhattan while subways were running with delays.

Authorities, including the Joint Terrorism Task Force which is made up largely of FBI agents and NY detectives, are continuing investigations into the incident.
