ISIS terrorist of Manhattan: I chose the subway due to Christmas

NYPD officers stand outside the New York Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station entrance after reports of an explosion in New York City US

Law enforcement flooded the area.

A man wearing a homemade pipe bomb set off the explosive in a busy transit hub on Monday, injuring five and setting off panic during the morning commute.

Ullah lived with his father, mother and brother in a Brooklyn neighborhood with a large Bangladeshi community, residents said.

After an irregular situation was reported in Midtown Manhattan - specifically in the Port Authority Bus Terminal area - NY police reported an explosion in the city's subway, which has paralyzed the area of the 42nd Street and 8th Avenue, during this Monday's morning. AP photo by A.M. Ahad.

- "I did it for the Islamic State", Ullah told investigators, according to the federal complaint. Ullah is being treated with severe burns in the abdomen and hands at Bellevue Hospital, and police inspectors have interrupted the interrogation several times to let him pray.

The blast detonated around 7:20 an underground walkway connecting two subway lines beneath the bus terminal, which accommodates 220,000 passenger trips a day.

- He began researching how to build improvised explosive devices about a year ago, began collecting the necessary items two to three weeks ago, and built the bomb in his home a week ago, the complaint states.

Members of the Port Authority Police Department (PAPD) found Ullah, and he was taken into custody. Earlier, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump's proposed policies "could have prevented this". Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed the incident was an act of terrorism. NYPD, FDNY, and MTA representatives also provided information. It was attached to Ullah with Velcro and zip ties.

He is now hospitalized at Bellevue Hospital, where he is being treated for lacerations and burns to his hands and abdomen, New York City Fire Department Commissioner Daniel Nigro said. They suffered injuries consistent with being at the scene of an explosion, like ringing ears and headaches, officials said.

Akayed Ullah was charged Tuesday with terrorism offenses in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of ny, as detailed in the complaint that describes a homemade explosive device just like instructions offered in an al-Qaeda magazine more than two years ago. "Thank God the perpetrator did not achieve his ultimate goal".

Cuomo said New Yorkers understand their city is an worldwide target "for many who would like to make a statement" against freedom. "The counter-reality is that this is NY and we all pitch together and we are a savvy people". "How can #NYC can keep such a vast subway system safe?"

Commuters fled after the device went off and smoke filled the passage, according to video of the event and news reports.

Ullah, originally from Bangladesh, had most recently been living in Brooklyn.

Three others sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the explosion. Two took themselves to Mt. Sinai West, one to Mt. Sinai Queens.

- Recent Israeli actions in Gaza compelled Ullah to carry out the attack, a law enforcement source said.

Port Authority terror suspect Akayed Ullah was not on law enforcement's radar, according to the NYPD's counter-terror chief, who said Tuesday that the Bangladesh-native simply appeared to be a stable, working-class immigrant.

He then switched to the A train at Jay St./MetroTech stop in Brooklyn before exiting the train at the Port Authority Bus Terminal stop in Manhattan, the same law enforcement official says.
