NEW YORK – Authorities in New York took “a number of people” into custody overnight in connection with Saturday’s bombing in Manhattan, just as their counterparts in New Jersey worked to render safe “multiple improvised explosive devices” that were discovered at an Elizabeth, N.J., train station.
Though officials did not immediately say whether the two developments were related, they sowed further concern about terrorism in the region and across the country. Police already had been investigating three weekend incidents — explosions in New York and New Jersey and a stabbing attack in Minnesota — that took place within a 12-hour period on Saturday.
About 8:45 p.m. Sunday, the FBI and the New York Police Department stopped what the bureau’s New York Field office called a “vehicle of interest” in the Manhattan bombing investigation, and took people into custody. As of early Monday morning, authorities said no one had been charged with a crime, and the investigation was continuing.
