ISIS Inspired Attack: Bombing on Manhattan Subway Platform

UPDATE3: He seems to have come into the country through chain migration - he was sponsored by a "family member" and as luck would have it, he was just under the age when he would have been ineligible. Querulous sort that I am, I question both of these criteria. Was he really a relative (see the case of the Somalis) and was he really under 21? - see the case of the "children" among the migrants in Europe.

UPDATE 2: 4 confirmed reported injured and the suspect is reported to have non-life-threatening injuries. HIs name is Akayed Ullah.

UPDATE:  Police say the suspect tried to detonate some kind of strapped on device but it "did not go off completely." The suspect is said to be from Bangladesh but it's unknown whether is here on a visa, is a permanent resident, or is a citizen. Police also calling the event "ISIS inspired."

More information coming in,

An explosion was reported Monday near the Port Authority Bus Terminal, sending early morning commuters scrambling.

The NYPD said it's investigating the incident, and have cleared out the A, C and E subway lines that sit beneath the building.

Cops took one man into custody, who they intially believe was carrying an explosive that went off, per a police source. He appears to be the only one injured so far.
