    New York City shaken by 'intentional' explosion, 29 injured
    [​IMG]
    Reuters

    By Simon Webb and David Ingram 23 mins ago


    NEW YORK, Sept 18 (Reuters) - An explosion rocked the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan on Saturday night, injuring at least 29 people, authorities said, adding that they are investigating the blast as a criminal act not immediately linked to any terror organization.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio and other city officials said investigators had ruled out a natural gas leak as the origin of the blast but they stopped short of calling it a bombing and declined to specify precisely what they believed may have triggered the explosion.

    "Early indications are that this was an intentional act," de Blasio said. He added that the site of the explosion, outside on a major thoroughfare in one of the most bustling areas of New York City, was being treated as a crime scene.

    "There is no evidence at this point of a terror connection," the mayor said at a news conference about three hours after the blast. He added, "There is no specific and credible threat against New York City at this point in time from any terror organization."...

    CNN has had that picture up for awhile. I went looking for that picture and couldn't find it. However, I did discover that information on how to build it is plentiful on the internet!

    Investigation underway into NYC explosion that injured 29

    NEW YORK (AP) — An explosion rocked a crowded Manhattan neighborhood and injured 29 people, and a suspicious device discovered blocks away was safely removed early Sunday. Mayor Bill de Blasio ruled out any terror connections but called the blast an "intentional act."

    "Tonight, New York City experienced a very bad incident," de Blasio said. "We have no credible and specific threat at this moment."
    -----
    It was unclear who was behind the blast and what motivated it.

    A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that a second device that officers investigated four blocks from the scene appeared to be a pressure cooker attached to wiring and a cellphone. The official, who was not authorized to speak about an ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity, said the device was found inside a plastic bag on West 27th Street. The device was removed with a robot and taken to a department firing range in the Bronx.

    The law enforcement official also said that the explosion that rocked a bustling Chelsea neighborhood appeared to have come from a construction toolbox in front of a building. Photos from the scene show a twisted and crumpled black metal box.

    The blast happened on West 23rd Street, in front of a residence for the blind, near a major thoroughfare with many restaurants and a Trader Joe's supermarket. Witnesses said the explosion at about 8:30 p.m. blew out the windows of businesses and scattered debris.

    The Fire Department of New York said 29 people were injured, and 24 people were taken to hospitals. One person received a puncture wound that was considered serious. The other injuries were described as scrapes and bruises.

    This may not be an act of international terrorism, but they ARE taking credit for it.
    I personally believe it most likely will end up being an ISIS sympathizer.

    ISIS Supporters Rush To Celebrate NYC Explosion

    "We cause you pain inside your house," one ISIS supporter bragged online


    Supporters of the Islamic State rushed to celebrate Saturday night’s powerful explosion in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood that injured at least 29 people, even as no group or individual has been arrested or claimed responsibility.

    “The lions of the Caliphate roar in New York, we cause you pain inside your house, the carrier of the Cross,” wrote one Twitter user who went by the name “I am ISIS, come and block me.” The account was soon suspended. Another, called “The Lone Wolves,” tweeted with the Arabic hashtag #ExplosionManhattanNewYork “Oh God burn America, take revenge in the name of your oppressed slaves and believers’ blood.”

    Others tweeted about “good tidings that keep coming” from New York, and one user affiliated with al-Qaeda in Syria tweeted: “Oh God go against America, the head of infidels. Oh God, count them and kill them one by one, and do not spare anyone of them.”

    ‘There will be more’: Chilling 911 call after the Chelsea explosion

    A 911 caller warned of further explosions right after the blast that rocked Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood and injured 29 people, The Post has learned.

    “I’m looking at the explosion down the block. There will be more,” the unidentified male said, claiming to be standing at 23rd Street and Seventh Avenue in the aftermath of the terrifying incident, according to law-enforcement sources Sunday.

    Investigators believe the blast was the result of a home-made, pressure-cooker bomb similar to an unexploded device found later on 27th Street, sources said.

    In another new wrinkle, a hand-written letter, a portion of which is in Arabic, was found inside a plastic bag that held the second bomb, sources said.

    Investigators have obtained surveillance video of a person placing that device, sources said.
