Former NYPD Commissioner: Commuter Attack ?Committed in the Name of ISIS?

On 12.11.17 08:42 AM posted by Saagar Enjeti

A bombing Monday that targeted a Port Authority bus station in downtown Manhattan apparently was carried out by a Bangladeshi immigrant inspired by the Islamic State terrorist group, former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC.

“Preliminary information indicates the attack was committed in the name of ISIS,” Bratton said, adding that the suspect in the rush-hour bombing is “possibly” a*Bangladeshi man who has been in the U.S. for approximately seven years.

>>> Update: Authorities called the incident an “attempted terrorist attack” and*identified the man as*Akayed Ullah, 27, originally from Bangladesh. Three others received minor injuries, officials said.

Bratton said the man was injured badly enough by the explosion that he could not be interviewed.

The incident would mark the second ISIS-inspired attack on New York City within the past two months.
