Suspect In Custody In Weekend Bombing In NYC

Authorities in New York says they have a suspect in custody in a weekend explosion in a Manhattan neighbourhood that injured 29 people. It’s not clear if there’s a connection between multiple explosive devices found over the weekend in two states: the Manhattan explosion, an unexploded pressure cooker device blocks away, a pipe bomb blast at a Jersey shore town and five explosive devices at a New Jersey train station. ISIS, meantime, has claimed responsibility for the weekend stabbing attacks of nine people at a shopping mall in Minnesota. None of the victims suffered life threatening injuries. A young Somali man, who had entered the mall dressed as a private security guard and carrying a kitchen knife, was eventually shot and killed by an off duty police officer.
