Share

Cuomo, appearing later on "Fox & Friends", confirmed that authorities are seeking Ahmad Khan Rahami, 28, who is believed to be a US citizen of Afghan descent. Police and Federal Bureau of Investigation have launched an intense search for the man they believe may have built the bombs - a naturalized American citizen from Afghanistan.

No one has been charged with any crime, and the investigation is continuing, Langmesser said.

(CNN) - When New York's mayor steered clear of calling a bombing in his city a terror attack, it wasn't long before critics slammed him with a common refrain.

At least 29 people were injured after the explosion outside a home for the blind in the Chelsea district of NY.

NEW YORK-Counterterrorism agents were combing through surveillance videos as they hunted for a bomb maker who set off an explosion in New York Saturday night that injured 29 people, putting the city on high alert.

Officials have not revealed any details about the make-up of the pressure-cooker device, except to say it had wires and a mobile phone attached to it.

Gov. Cuomo Monday morning said he believes there was likely a foreign connection to the Chelsea bombing and that investigators are starting to focus on an individual suspect.

A pipe bomb also exploded Saturday in Seaside Park ahead of the race for Marines and sailors, but no one was injured.

Dugarry lashes out at Man United's Mourinho, Ibrahimovic
They lost nine of the 16 league games that the Portuguese took charge of in 2015-16 and sat in 16th place when he departed. This is the first time Mourinho has suffered three successive defeats since managing FC Porto in 2002.

No one was injured in the blast - most likely because registration problems delayed the start of the race, so no one was near the garbage can when the explosion happened.

Anyone with information is asked to contact FBI at: 1-800-CALL-FBI. One of the devices exploded as a bomb squad used a robot to try to disarm it. Officials have been sifting through evidence retrieved from the scenes of the blasts in NY and New Jersey, a stabbing spree in Minnesota, and a backpack loaded with explosive devices discovered in Elizabeth, N.J.

Ahmad Khan Rahami, the prime suspect in the trio of weekend bombings, was captured in Linden, NJ after a gun battle with police on Monday morning.

There was no immediate word on whether the devices were similar to those in nearby Seaside Park or New York City.

In a news conference, she said the U.S. needed to work with its allies to combat global terrorism and that the country should launch an "intelligence surge" to detect attacks before they are carried out.

On Sunday night, five devices were found in a trash can near a train station in Elizabeth.

Mayor Bill de Blasio says initial investigations suggest the explosion, on West 23rd Street in New York City's Chelsea neighborhood, was an "intentional act", but that there is "no evidence at this point" of a connection to terrorism. There is "nothing to indicate" that Rahami was previously on the FBI's radar, he said.

Authorities released a photo Monday of a man sought in connection with the bombing in Manhattan that injured 29 people over the weekend. "This is too loud", Stanhope said.
