Times Square/New York - Site of a amateurish terrorist attempt acc to U.S. authorities
In spite of the info that Qari Hussain Mehsud, a key leader of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP, or the Movement of Pakistani Taliban) and a close lieutenant of TTP leader Hakimullah Mehsud, has claimed responsibility for the New York’s Times Square failed car bomb plot Mrs. Janet Napolitano, the US Secretary of Homeland Security, said today that the unexploded car bomb found in Times Square in New York late yesterday appeared to be an “amateurish” terrorism attempt.
Ms Napolitano said that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Homeland Security and the City of New York were examining security video from the area around the vehicle, a Nissan SUV, which was towed early on Sunday to a forensic lab in Queens after a robotic arm was used to break the windows and remove the most dangerous materials.
There was no information to suggest that there are any other terrorism targets linked to the incident and the evidence so far suggested that this was a “one-off attempt”, Ms Napolitano told Fox News.
“There are a lot of cameras in that area,” she said, adding that fingerprints had been recovered from the vehicle.READ MORE HERE
