New York Mayor: “This Was An Intentional Act”


UPDATE: 11:28PM Eastern

Mayor Bill de Blasio says there is no evidence that the explosion is connected to terrorism, though the Manhattan device was similar in nature to the pipe bomb device detonated in Seaside Park, New Jersey earlier Saturday. Police say the Seaside Park device exploded inside of a garbage as runners prepared for a Marine Corp charity event.

It has been reported that a similar device planted inside a garbage can was used in the Manhattan explosion (see below).
