4 injured in terrorist attack attempt in New York, suspect nabbed
update:December 12,2017

He said the attacker obtained information on how to make a bomb from the internet.
The incident was the second in the fourth quarter of the year that New York City saw one individual conducted terror attack in the busiest areas of Manhattan.
On Oct. 31, eight people were killed and a dozen more injured after a truck plowed into pedestrians near the World Trade Center.
De Blasio called the incident "a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians."
At the press conference on Monday morning, reporters asked police authorities why New York City seems to be seeing more frequent occurrence of terror attacks in recent days.
New York City Police Department Deputy Commissioner John Miller said approximately 26 plots have been prevented through intelligence investigation in New York City since the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
He added that authorities have put in enormous effort in preventing a significant number of plots and attacks.
He also mentioned the 26 plots that have been prevented were those "we can talk about."
The incident sent commuters into a frenzy.
"Just was stuck in a running stampede at port authority bus terminal due to bomb scare. cops EVERYWHERE," tweeted Chelsea LaSalle, a designer.
More New Yorkers seemed to be more disturbed by the disrupted rush hour transit than the explosion.
An M train was halted in the tunnel between Court Sq-23 St. and Lexington Avenue/53 Street for almost an hour from 8:35 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. due to train congestion led by police investigation in 42nd Street.
Most passengers had seen initial reports about the explosion and did not feel very concerned. Several passengers did get angry as they were stuck on the train and were not able to go to work on time.
