A bomb exploded in a walkway at the Port Authority Bus Terminal near Times Square in New York Monday morning in what authorities are calling a terrorist attack. Four New Yorkers were injured but New York security officials said there were no reported deaths.



Authorities said 27-year old Akayed Ullah from Bangladeh exploded a pipe bomb in the terminal at 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue in an attempted terrorist attack but the attack appeared to have failed.

“They yelled at us to get out, that there was an explosion,” Rosemary Usoh, 40, said. “I was nervous. There were a lot of people running.”

Authorities believe this was an isolated attack. Ullah was hurt by the device attached to his chest and was arrested on the scene.

New Mayor Bill de Blasio said during a mid-morning press conference that terrorists “yearn to attack New York City,” adding that in this morning’s incident, “all we know of is one individual who, thank God, was unsuccessful in his aims.”




Eyewitnesses told the media that at about 7:15 am, NYPD officers rushed on to the terminal and ordered everyone to evacuate immediately.

“They yelled at us to get out, that there was an explosion,” Rosemary Usoh, 40, said. “I was nervous. There were a lot of people running.”






Alicja Wlodkowski, 51 said she was in a restaurant inside the bus terminal building when the explosion occurred. “A woman fell, and nobody even stopped to help her because it was so crazy,” Wlodkowski said. “Then it all slowed down. I was standing and watching and scared.”

“I am wondering what this is all about,” said German visitor Dietrich Goettingen of Ulm as he watched the scene from the sidewalk at 45th Street, which is a block from Times Square. “We heard all the noise of the police cars from our hotel and now we find this. I have never seen anything like it.”
