New York blast confirmed as ‘terror-related incident’

New York police commissioner James O’Neil says the blast that rocked a subway station in the heart of Manhattan is a “terror-related incident.”

Police say the explosion happened in an underground passageway under 42nd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. The 7:30 a.m. blast caused smoke to fill the passageway, which was crowded with throngs of Monday morning commuters.

Three people were injured, as was the suspected bomber.
