FBI, New York City Police probing SUV bomb in Times Square : Police Commissioner sees "no evidence of Taliban connection"
Authorities in New York City found a potentially powerful car bomb in Times Square late Saturday night. City residents and police were able to stave off what might have been a deadly attack.
SUV Bomb failed to detinate
New York City officials say police, firefighters and bomb experts were notified of a suspicious sport utility vehicle after a t-shirt vendor noticed smoke coming out of it.
Smoke was coming from the SUV, and a popping noise was heard. Law Enforcement removed gas containers, fireworks, a propane tank, and timing devices from within the vehicle. Time Square was evacuated by police.
New York City Mayor Bloomberg praised police and residents for their swift action.
The FBI is investigating, and President Obama has praised NYC for its response to what New York Governor David Paterson has called a potential act of terror.
