Car bomb found in Times Square

The square was evacuated after a flash was seen inside a SUV which then began emitting

quantities of smoke just after 6:30pm local time.

The FBI and local law enforcement teams are now trying to gather evidence from the vehicle.

"This appears to be a car bomb that the bomb squad is in the process of dismantling,"

New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said. "We do not know the motive."

Mr Browne said an mounted policeman spotted a box smoking in the back of the Nissan

Pathfinder sport utility vehicle shortly before 7 p.m. (2300 GMT) and that Times Square,

the popular tourist destination in Manhattan's Midtown, was evacuated soon after.

Police and fire department sources, who asked not to be named, said the device was being

treated as a "failed device" and included explosives, burned wires, three tanks of

propane and two canisters of gasoline. Police would not say whether the incident was

being treated as an act of terrorism.

New York has remained on high alert for another attack since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Last year police said they thwarted a plot to bomb the New York subway system. Two men

have pleaded guilty in the case.

Barack Obama commended the "quick action" by New York police in dealing with the incident

and said the New York Police Department had done "excellent work" in responding.

A New York police officer, who did not give his name because he was not authorized to

speak to the media, said a man was seen fleeing the car and that Times Square was

evacuated in case there were other devices.

In Washington, FBI spokesman Richard Kolko said the Joint Terrorism Task Force has

responded along with the NYPD.

A US official, who asked not to be identified by name, said the US Department of Homeland

Security was aware of the situation and was monitoring developments, but declined to

comment further. The official said the New York Police Department was in charge of the

investigation.

The SUV was parked very close to a production of the show "The Lion King" on 45th Street.

Women in evening gowns were among the crowd on one of the warmest nights of the year and

the busiest night of the week for Broadway theaters.

NYPD have confirmed it's real - not "suspected" or "apparent".

It was scheduled to go off and there were 2 five-gallon containers filled with gasoline.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Are you denying the significance of the first car bomb on US soil since Oklahoma?

Yes he is. Especially if a Muslim is behind it.

There are others who wish to damage to us also.


If more citizens were armed, criminals would think twice about attacking them, Detroit Police Chief James Craig

Florida currently has more concealed-carry permit holders than any other state, with 1,269,021 issued as of May 14, 2014

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

0h dear G-d.


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

It doesn't sound like the work of muslim terrorists, they know how to build ones that work.

In all seriousness, I for one am very glad it failed and hope they catch whoever it was that thought this was a good idea.


Refusing to use the spellchick!

I have put you on ignore. No really, I have, but you are still ruining my enjoyment of this site. .

No, this looks domestic. However, it is only a matter of time before a radical Muslim terrorist plot is sucessful. I am shocked that we have been so lucky so far.
