Via Twitter I’m trying to follow the news of an explosion at the New York Port Authority this morning. The New York Post has just posted Yaron Steinbuch’s story reporting: “Several people were injured Monday morning when a device exploded at the Port Authority bus terminal on 42nd Street, according to law enforcement sources. One person is in custody after his device partially detonated inside a tunnel, sources told The Post.”
This is a breaking news story. Early reports are often misleading or erroneous; treat them with caution. I am posting this note so that interested readers can check in to their favorite news sources through the day. The Post’s Twitter feed is here.
UPDATE: As of 9:00 a.m. (Eastern), it is reported that the only injury was to the would-be bomber.
UPDATE 2: As of noon (Eastern), three others have been treated for minor injuries.
