MORE ISLAMIC TERROR? Explosion outside of New Jersey train station in third major attack in as many days
After bombings in Manhattan and New Jersey, explosion reported by New Jersey train station following discovery of ‘suspicious package’.
Witnesses say an explosion was heard outside of a train station in New Jersey Monda morning, after a suspicious object was discovered in a nearby trash can.
Police say two men had called to notify them regarding a suspicious package that had been placed in a trash can just outside of the train station, saying that a pipe and wires were conspicuously sticking out of the bag.
FBI and local authorities had sealed off the area when an explosion was heard. It is unclear if the explosion was controlled, with conflicting reports from the City of Elizabeth.
A spokesperson for Mayor Christian Bollwage claimed the blast was controlled, but Mayor Bollwage later contradicted this claim, saying the explosive pack had detonated on its own.
He added that a major catastrophe had been averted, and that given the size of the explosive device, it could have “certainly killed or injured many.”
