This has been the second time and several many months, New York City the scene of a terror attack, but this time the target commuters in the nation’s busiest subway system, but New Yorkers nowadays are seem to be used to it, that bomb went off in the subway walkway in 8th Avenue’s Port Authority Bus Terminal as it was strapped to a terror suspect.

The suspect who planned the attack was twenty seventh year old Ahkayed Ullah
who attached himself with the bomb and has suffered minor injuries and was later taken into the hospital, a former livery driver from Bangladesh who lives in Brooklyn, is in critical condition at Bellevue Hospital tonight, many people where hurt in this blast, as chaos erupted underground subway service is restored through Times Square and Port Authority now backup and running as the passageway is still an active crime scene and remains closed.
From the suspect, to the investigation to your commute route,
what do we know as confirmed sources tells STN New York and STN News that he was a student, and we don’t know what kind of a livery cab driver he was either, as he had that job but he isn’t the type that will make a pipe bomb maker, the pipe bomb that he confessed to the police today as he was building, carrying, and detonating here at the Port Authority causes no life threatening injuries but police said it was not for a lack of crime.
Anti Terror police scrambled to the Port Authority Bus Terminal this morning a muscular show of force and deathness as K-9 units sweep nearby buildings just to make sure that the threat was over, after a man detonated a pipe bomb underground,
“I just heard a big sound like there was smoke coming from the station, I came out of there” - Said Christina Bathea as a eyewitness to the scene,
James Ramirez eyewitness the scene as it hear what happened he said,
“The door was open up as people planned to start rushing out the police was all behind them as they say ‘Everybody out of the building, Everybody out of the building’ so I just got to the other side of the building and got out away from the scene on 8th Ave as fast as I could got away from the crowded people as fast as I could, I didn’t know what else was going to happen”.
According to the Port Authority CCTV footage, Police said 27 year old Ahkayed Ullah was walking the tunnel that connects 7th avenue and 8th avenue alongside 42nd street when he detonated a homemade bomb that he built,
“This male was wearing a improvised low tech explosive device, that was attached to his body, he intentionally detonated that device“ - said NYC Police Commissioner James O’ Neill,
“The device is based on a pipe bomb, it was a fixture with a combination of velcro and zip ties“ said NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller,
But the bomb it self didn’t start off very well as it seriously injured the man who police said built it, carried it and detonated it to 27 year old Ahkayed Ullah, the other four now total up to five others sustained minor injuries, but luckily no one was killed, but sources said he told police he was a supporter of ISIS and was radicalized watching videos produced by the group online.
“We are the statue of liberty, in our harbor and that makes us an international target“ - said Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo,
“We have prevented a significant number of plots, a significant number of attacks, but this is a fact of life for whether if you are in New York or London or Paris, the question is Will it happened here? And the answer is and will be it can happened anywhere” - John Miller added.
The police said Ullah is the ultimate lone wolf, They said he talked about his plans with nobody at all, he went online, first watch videos and then follow instructions on how to make a pipe bomb unfortunately for commuters here today he wasn’t very good at it.
