improvised bomb hits times square
from danger room: "New York City police officers and firefighters cordoned off much of Times Square for more than two hours after a small explosion - set off, the authorities said, by an “improvised explosive device” - damaged the front of the Armed Forces Career Center on the traffic island bounded by 43rd and 44th Streets, Seventh Avenue and Broadway at 3:43 a.m., the Times is reporting. "No one was injured, and after a temporary interruption, subway service was restored." ... "The mention of a bicyclist raised possible links to a May 2005 bombing at the British Consulate and an Oct. 26 explosion at the Mexican Consulate," the New York Daily News notes. "In both cases, police said, the suspect was possibly riding a bicycle when hollowed-out grenades - filled with black powder and a fuse - were tossed into the consulates. No arrests were made in those attacks."
