First up, a terrorism suspect has been arrested by police after a fast- moving series of events in the U.S. states of New Jersey and New York. Yesterday, we told you about two explosions that went off Saturday. The one in Seaside Park, New Jersey, didn't hurt anyone. The one in the New York City borough of Manhattan injured 29 people.
In the hours that followed, police and civilians found several other unexploded devices in New York and New Jersey. Officials say that led them to believe a terrorist cell, a small group of terrorists, was operating in the two states.
Also, surveillance video showed a man rolling a duffle bag near the site of the New York City bombing. That along with a fingerprint and a cellphone found on an unexploded device nearby is what law enforcement say led to a person of interest in the case. The FBI identified him as 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in Afghanistan. He was wanted in connection with the explosions in New York and New Jersey and other unexploded devices as well, a manhunt followed.
And as police closed in on his location in Linden, New Jersey, there was a shootout. Two officers were hit but they survived. Rahami was also wounded and taken into police custody yesterday.
The investigation continues. There may be other suspects in the case and New York has increased its police and National Guard presence in bus terminals, airports and subway stations.
