BALTIMORE, MD (AFRICAN EXAMINER) – The New York officials have identified one Ahmad Khan Rahami – a naturalized US citizen as the mastermind of last Saturday explosion which rocked Chelsea area and injured 29 people.
The 28-year-old suspect said to be born in Afghanistan has been declared wanted for questioning over the attack. In addition, the New York Police Department (NYPD) has released a photograph.
On Monday, a backpack containing up to five devices exploded near railway station, in Elizabeth, New Jersey, when a bomb disposal robot attempted to deactivate it.
Investigators have warned the public that the suspect, whose last known address was in Elizabeth, should be regarded “armed and dangerous”.
Consequently, the New York Mayor Bill de Blasio directed on CNN: “Anyone who sees this individual or knows anything about him or his whereabouts needs to call it in right away,”
The State media reported that both the bomb that went off in New York on Saturday and a device found nearby were shrapnel-filled pressure cookers.
The device was picked from the bin by two men Sunday evening, who thought the bag contained value items.
However, Elizabeth Mayor Christian Bollwage said the explosion was not controlled.
