Exposion Injures Officer In Times Square Subway Station
In most versions, a knapsack was filled with firecrackers, set on fire, and a transit cop was injured when it exploded. The second version, which I heard on the local t.v. news and in the Post, said the knapsack was filled with gunpowder and BB pellets. Both versions insisted that this was not a terrorist attack. (Yeah, right).
"Joe Barbone, 34, who manages Stiletto, a strip club nearby on Eighth Ave., said, 'I heard the boom and I figured I should call home to say goodbye.'" - Daily News
"The knapsack contained a pipe bomb containing gunpowder, BBs and a fuse, a law-enforcement source told The Post." - NY Post
"Scores of heavily armed police officers trained in anti-terrorism tactics and hundreds of other officers sealed off parts of the surrounding streets." - Newsday
