• Police seek 2 passersby who handled NY pressure cooker bomb


    NEW YORK CITY: New York police said on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila) they are seeking two pedestrians filmed handling the unexploded pressure cooker bomb found late on Saturday just blocks from where a bomb blast injured 29 people. Police Commissioner James O’Neill stressed that the two are wanted as witnesses and are not suspected in the bombing that ripped through New York’s Chelsea neighborhood that night. Surveillance cameras caught the two walking down West 27th Street and coming across a duffel bag that had been left in the street. They “saw the bag, admired the bag, removed what turned out to be a device, a pressure cooker. Placed it on the sidewalk and rolled the bag away,” Police Commissioner James O’Neil said. “They’re very, very lucky” it didn’t explode, said O’Neill. A photo of the two taken from the surveillance video was posted on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s website along with an advisory that they were being sought as witnesses.
