New York City Mayor Mayor Bill de Blasio has assured the citizens that there is no longer a threat in Times Square after 27 yr-old Akayed Ullah set off a homemade device that he was wearing, injuring himself and 3 others.
“At this point in time, all we know of is one individual who, thank God, was unsuccessful in his aims. There are also no credible and specific threats against New York City at this time. But we will give you more information, of course, as the investigation unfolds. The first responders, responded brilliantly. Now the mission of the NYPD is to secure all major transit hubs and major sites in this city. So you’ll see expanded NYPD presence today all over the city.”
