Description
Press statement by New York Chief of Police, William Bratton, following an explosion that ripped through a New York City subway train. Police say the blast at a station near Wall Street was caused by a homemade incendiary device. The device is believed to have blown up in the lap of a man on the train, which was crowded with Christmas shoppers. Chief Bratton says the incendiary device was a small glass jar filled with a flammable liquid and an external igniter. Around thirty-seven people are believed to be injured, three of them seriously.
