Port Authority attack suspect : What we know of Akayed Ullah

Manhattan 'explosion': Police responding to reports of incident at bus terminal

New York City police say a suspect is in custody following an explosion early Monday at a subway station a block away from Times Square. He intentionally detonated that device.

A man with a bomb-like device strapped to his body set off an explosion at one of New York's busiest commuter hubs at rush hour, injuring himself and three others.

The Post reported that several people were injured after a device was reportedly detonated. He is among the four people suffering non-life-threatening injuries after the blast and is in Bellevue Hospital, as per media reports.

"This is NY, we all stick together. Because we're beacons to the world and we actually show that society of many faiths and many backgrounds can work, and we showed that democracy can work", said de Blasio. Ullah is seen laying on the ground after the smoke clears.

Mayor Bill de Blasio has been briefed on the incident. "Thank god our first responders were there so quickly to address the situation and make sure people are safe".

Other injuries minor: Two victims at Mount Sinai West and one at Mount Sinai Queens are being treated for headaches and ringing in the ears, Nigro said.

City officials said the suspect did make statements before detonating the device, but they would not yet share what he said Monday morning.

Former New York Police Department Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC that the man was inspired by the Islamic State terror group and originally came from Bangladesh. The officials said he lives in Brooklyn and may be of Bangladeshi descent. The officials spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the incident.

The Port Authority Police Benevolent Association identified the officers as Sean Gallagher, Drew M. Preston, John "Jack" F. Collins and Anthony Manfredini.

"This is NY". A police officer is holding the man's hands behind his back.

"The NYPD is responding to reports of an explosion of unknown origin at 42nd Street and 8th Ave, #Manhattan".

The blast occurred at the peak of the morning rush hour, shortly before 8am (1pm Irish time), when large numbers of people were headed to work.

Speaking from the scene, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo acknowledged that New York City is "an worldwide target", but said terrorists will not win, 1010 WINS' Juliet Papa reported. "That said, since he held an FHV license, if in fact he did drive, we do know that it could not have been a yellow taxi". "Get out! Get out!'"

John Miles was waiting for a bus to MA.

"I was going through the turnstile", he said. "I was freaking out", he said.
