NY explosion: 1 in custody after blast at Port Authority bus station

A suspect is in custody following what appears to be an attempted terrorist attack at New York City's Port Authority Bus Terminal Monday morning.

On Oct. 31, eight people were killed and a dozen more injured after a truck plowed into pedestrians near the World Trade Center.

Being treated: Ullah is now at Bellevue Hospital, where he is being treated for lacerations and burns to his hands and abdomen, New York City Fire Department Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

The blast took place in an underground passageway at the Port Authority subway station, the authorities said.

"Today's attempted mass murder attack in New York City - the second terror attack in New York in the last two months - once again highlights the urgent need for Congress to enact legislative reforms to protect the American people", Trump said in a statement.

Addressing the press on the matter, Mayor Bill de Blasio said the man acted alone and no other incidents have been reported.

Cuomo told cable news channel NY1 that officials "have reason to believe that this person went to the internet and found out how to make a homemade bomb".

"There are no known additional incidents or activities", he said, adding that police will be on high alert. That license, which was not for a New York City cab, but instead for a so-called "for-hire" vehicle, lapsed in March 2015. "Everybody was scared and running and shouting".

The Port Authority bus station was also evacuated.

The bus terminal is located in Midtown at 625 Eighth Avenue between 40th Street and 42nd Street, one block east of the Lincoln Tunnel and one block west of Times Square.

Law enforcement officials say that the man had explosive devices strapped on when it exploded in New York City subway.

According to the New York Post, the suicide bomber suspect is a Bangladesh native, 27, who now lives in Brooklyn. On a typical weekday, about 220,000 passengers arrive or depart on more than 7,000 buses.

Greyhound and Airport service remains suspended out of Port Authority.
