At least 29 wounded in ‘intentional’ explosion in New York City

Last Updated: September 18, 2016By


According to New York’s mayor, the city is not under any kind of terror threat.

That must be a great comfort to the 29 or more people wounded by this explosion.

So what was it, then?

At least 29 people have been injured in an explosion in a crowded district of New York City.

The cause of the blast late on Saturday in Chelsea remains unclear. Mayor Bill de Blasio described it as “intentional” but said that there were no known links to terror.

The force of the blast blew out windows and could be heard several blocks away.

Another device, reportedly a pressure cooker rigged with wires, was later found in the same district.

    My sister lives in New Jersey. There was also a pipe bomb explosion that occurred in Seaside Park, N.J. Saturday along the planned route for a Marine Corps charity 5K.

    Perhaps the Mayor is simply “playing it safe” to avoid panic.
    Alternatively, when the US avoid stating the obvious, they are usually trying to spin the facts to suit their own agenda.

    …. and you wonder where our politicians got it from?
