Video: Suspect in New York City and New Jersey Explosions is Not Part of Broader Terrorist Cell, Says OfficialsPosted:
NEW JERSEY – Investigators say they've found no evidence so far that the suspect in the attacks in New York City and New Jersey over the weekend was part of a broader terrorist cell.
On early Monday, police took Ahmad Khan Rahami, a 28-year-old from Elizabeth, into custody in connection with the bombs found over the weekend. Rahami was shot while exchanging gunfire with police in Linden before his arrest. Fingerprints and surveillance video helped law enforcement identify Rahami.
A federal law enforcement official says three bombs found in New York and New Jersey had one component in common - a flip-style cellphone.
A pipe bomb exploded Saturday in Seaside Park ahead of a 5k run, however, no one was injured. Two devices found in New York City included pressure cookers. One of those bombs went off, injuring 29 people. Last night, five explosive devices were found near a train station in Elizabeth.
