Small bomb in Times Square NY


quote:
A small explosive device rocked New York's Times Square early today, causing minor damage to a military recruiting station.

The device shattered a glass entryway to the installation, but no one was injured, police said.

Law enforcement officials said that a single, small improvised device was tossed, apparently by a man on a bike, at the armed forces booth in Times Square early this morning, causing the center of midtown Manhattan to be locked down and subways to be diverted but no major property damage.

Sources said that the device was made from a green ammunition can filled with explosive powder. It blew out the lower part of the glass -- it's being described as a "low explosive."
