A bomb attack in New York City was a terrorist act, officials say, but no links have been found to global groups and the motivation remains unclear.
“Was it a political motivation? A personal motivation? We do not know,”
said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Saturday night’s blast in Manhattan injured 29 people. They have all now been released from hospital.
NY Governor Andrew Cuomo said:
“Whoever placed these bombs – we will find them and they will be brought to justice.”
A second device – reportedly a pressure cooker attached to wiring and a mobile phone – had been found four blocks from the site of the explosion in the Chelsea district and was removed safely.
