The bomber, now identified as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, was walking in one of the tunnels underneath NYC’s Port Authority when the bomb went off. It appears either something malfunctioned that made the bomb to explode or it was a very small explosive. The man who was inspired by ISIS was captured by the police at the scene.
NYPD says Ullah has been living in the U.S. for 7 years. He’s a Bangladeshi immigrant, and police say the attack was definitely a terrorist act, inspired by ISIS. About five people were slightly injured in the attack.
