An ISIS inspired Bangladeshi Muslim terrorist carrying a pipe bomb blew himself up near the Port Authority Bus Terminal on Monday, and was immediately taken into custody, police sources said.
The blast went off in an underground subway passage just 200 feet from the terminal at West 42nd St. and Eighth Ave., the sources said.
A total of 4 injuries reported at the scene of an explosion at Port Authority. All injuries are non-life-threatening
Authorities evacuated the A, C and E trains, but didn’t find any structural damage.
Mayor de Blasio has been briefed about the ongoing situation, as has President Trump.
The Muslim terrorist – a 27-year-old Brooklyn man identified as Akayed Ullah – had wires attached to him and a five-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his mid-section as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub.
The terrorist has been living in the U.S. for seven years.
