NYC Port Authority Terror Attacker Linked To ISIS, Officials Say
Written by broebling on December 12, 2017
An ISIS-inspired terrorist with a crude bomb strapped to his chest injured three people and himself and caused panic inside a busy Midtown subway station Monday morning in the latest terror attack on New York City. The suspect, Akayed Ullah, detonated an “improvised, low-tech explosive device,” similar to a pipe bomb, at 7:20 a.m. as he walked in a pedestrian tunnel underneath 42nd Street. Ullah, 27, of Flatlands, Brooklyn, was in custody at Bellevue Hospital Monday where he’s being treated for serious injuries including burns and wounds, officials said. Three other people suffered minor injuries consistent with being in the area of an explosion.
