A bomb suspect has been arrested after an explosion at New York’s main bus station – which left terrified tourists “stampeding” from the area.
Officers and a bomb squad raced to Manhattan’s Port Authority Bus Terminal following the “large” blast at rush hour this morning.
Local reports claim a suicide bomber, covered in wires and armed with a pipe bomb and a battery pack, detonated an explosive device.
The male suspect was taken into custody after the bomb ‘partially detonated’, law enforcement sources told the New York Post.
At least four people were injured in the blast.
Horrifying video footage, apparently filmed in an underground tunnel at the terminal, appears to show the moment of the explosion.
