Meanwhile, CNN has reported that police have found 1-2 explosive devices at the scene and are still searching for additional bombs at the site. The A, C and E subway lines were evacuated, NYC Police Department Sgt. Brendan Ryan said.

Three bystanders sustained minor injuries.

The attack could have been catastrophic given the crowds of commuters passing through at the time.

"I think it's wonderful they haven't shut it down".

Police activity outside the Port Authority Bus Terminal following reports of a confirmed explosion inside an underground tunnel in the building in New York City, Dec. 11, 2017. A short piece of metal pipe was packed with low intensity explosive material and a handful of screws meant to cause injury. "This is NY and the reality is that we are a target for many who would like to make a statement against democracy, against freedom", he said. And you hopefully have a strong belief in the man upstairs.

The explosion went off in the passageway linking the Port Authority and Times Square subway stations in midtown Manhattan.

New York City police apprehended Ullah shortly after the homemade pipe bomb exploded at 7:02 a.m.

Mr Ullah has, up to now, also held a clean record in the U.S., with just traffic violations cited by the police.

The device was attached to his body using Velcro and zip ties, NYPD Deputy Police Commissioner John Miller said.

"Let's be clear, as New Yorkers, our lives revolve around the subways", de Blasio said. He was radicalized from watching Islamic State group videos online.

Speaking on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton, said the suspect "supposedly was setting the device off in the name of ISIS, so definitely a terrorist attack, definitely intended".

"We are targeted by those whose poisoned minds think that killing innocent Americans here in this city will somehow advance their twisted ideology", he said.

There is no other immediate threat, according to the mayor. "We're not going allow them to disrupt us".

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called the incident an act of terrorism.

Details on how the suspect was apprehended were not immediately available, but the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association, a union representing Port Authority police officers, said on Twitter that the department's officers took down the suspect at gunpoint.

"My daily commute is frequently through this bus station on the way to work", Johnson said.

The blast occurred about 7:20 a.m. near West 42th Street and Eighth Avenue, police said. We'll move quickly to correct the record and we'll only point to the best information we have at the time.
