Obama to deliver statement on NY, NJ bombings

The White House says President Barack Obama was briefed throughout the night and early Monday on the investigation into the bombs found in New York City and New Jersey.

Spokesman Josh Earnest says the White House is following the situation closely. He says Obama will comment publicly “relatively soon.”

He was expected to comment Monday afternoon after a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
