Suspect of bombing near Times Square in custody, 4 injured including suspect

The terrorist who caused a pipe bomb explosion in a Manhattan subway station near Times Square is in custody and the incident treated as a terrorist attack has been contained. He is identified only as aged 37 from Brooklyn. Social media describe him as from Bangladesh, seven years in the US and acting for ISIS.  The bomb apparently detonated prematurely on a subway platform and injured the bomber before he could enter a train. Four other people were injured. The suspect apparently strapped the explosive device on his body, which would make this a failed suicide bombing.  Police responded to the explosion at the Port Authority bus terminal at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue, not far from Times Square. The A, C. and E subway lines were evacuated and closed. New York’s anti-terror forces are on high alert at train and bus transport hubs in preparation for potential terrorist attacks in this holiday season leading up to Christmas. President Trump was briefed on the explosion.

    We stronly advice all jihadi fighters to test the devices on themselves days prior to the attack, for we shall not fall in this shame of failure again! May the courageous testing fighters rejoyce in Paradise, greeted by virgins, eating delicious foods, and shitting out beautiful dynamite battons complete, with fuse and blasting cap!
