Explosion in New York Bus Terminal One in Custody Others Injured

Authorities think Ullah intentionally detonated a pipe bomb-based device that was strapped to his body with Velcro and zip ties during rush hour, NBC News reported.

At this time, all MTA trains are bypassing the Port Authority and 42 St. stops as police investigated the incident.

In a statement shortly after the bombing, Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) described New York City as "the most resilient place on Earth". Ullah has been taken into custody and is being treated for burns and lacerations at a Bellevue Hospital in the Kips Bay neighborhood of Manhattan.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called the explosion an attempted terrorist attack.

At least three other people suffered minor injuries, including ringing in the ears and headaches.

New York Police Department Commissioner James O Neil said the attacker has been identified.

However, he is a Bangladeshi national and has for the past seven years lived in Brooklyn, which has a sizable Muslim-American population and is home to numerous mosques and madrassas.

Motive: Ullah told investigators that he carried out the attack because of recent Israeli actions in Gaza, a law enforcement source reported. Authorities evacuated and shut down surrounding public transportation following the attack. It was the first deadly terror attack in NY since 9/11.
