Device Detonated in New Jersey, 5 People Questioned in New York Bombing Investigation

Source: NBC News

ELIZABETH, N.J. A large explosion was heard in New Jersey early Monday near the scene where a suspicious package that appeared to contain pipe bombs was discovered earlier near the Elizabeth transit station.

No damage was immediately visible. There was no immediate word from authorities on whether the explosion might have been a controlled detonation of the device found a few hours earlier, but no warning of such a blast was given beforehand.


The unexplained explosion shortly before 1 a.m. Monday came as developments continued moving quickly more than 24 hours after a bombing Saturday night injured 29 people in Manhattan. Authorities stopped a "vehicle of interest" in the New York blast at about 8:45 p.m. ET Sunday near the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York, though no one had been charged, the FBI said.

"No injuries at Elizabeth explosion scene, county spox says"

An explosion was heard at the Elizabeth train station early Monday, where local and federal authorities were investigating a suspicious package.

The blast went off as a bomb robot was examining a device inside a backpack under the train tracks around 12:40 a.m. at Morris Avenue and Julian Place, a law enforcement source told NJ Advance Media. The explosion was not a controlled blast, the source said. There were no immediate reports of injuries or major damage.

According to Mayor Christian Bollwage, two men found the package in a waste basket on North Broad Street and Julian Place around 9:30 p.m.

The men took the package "because they thought it was of some value," walked for a bit, then saw wires and a pipe, dropped the package and notified Elizabeth Police.

edit: updated with less scary headline that NBC has arrived at at same link.

ELIZABETH, N.J. Authorities carried out a controlled detonation early Monday after a suspicious package appearing to contain pipe bombs was discovered near an Elizabeth transit station, authorities said.

No warning of the controlled detonation was given beforehand, and officers in front of a yellow police line at the station were startled by the blast.

A spokesman for Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage told NBC News that the detonation could be followed by more as investigators work through "multiple devices" found in a single backpack.

Officers and a robot were examining the other devices early Monday. No further details were immediately available.
