A pipe bomb/explosive vest went off prematurely this morning in New York City injuring the attacker and three innocent bystanders in a busy central Manhattan transportation hub.
The man has been identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, a Bangladeshi man who immigrated to the United States seven years ago.
"Let's be clear, this was an attempted terrorist attack," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said. - http://www.cbc.ca/ne...quare-1.4442450
Was it merely attempted? The man went through with the attack but his low-tech explosive device only managed to injure three innocent people.
