An explosion in New York has injured 29 people on the night of September 17. The explosion shook the suburb of Chelsea and a second explosive device was found undetonated a few blocks away. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio told reporters there are indications that the explosion at 23rd Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan “was an intentional act.” However, he continued and said “there is no evidence at this point of a terror connection” and that the city was under no further threat. As a precaution, security has been increased throughout the city.
Thankfully, there have been no fatalities and the people injured are not in danger of dying from their injuries.
