The New York Post, who cites police sources, says that the young man was inspired by Is.
The 27-year-old, who had hidden the bomb tube about 13 inches long below his jacket, on the right side, partially detonated the bomb while he was in an underpass in the Port Authority bus terminal. Light trousers, a checkered shirt, he was transported to Bellevue Hospital.
The bomber told investigators that he had built the artisan bomb he wore when he exploded at his workplace. The CNN reports it, without for now specifying what kind of activity it carried out.
The man lived permanently in New York for seven years. An element that means that the young man had passed all the necessary controls of the authorities, to stay in the United States. Ullah was stopped and was slightly injured.
"I did it as a revenge for Israel's actions against Gaza," he said according to CNN. Ullah, according to the first reconstructions, is a former taxi driver from Bangladesh who lives in Brooklyn. "They bombed my country and I wanted to hurt here," the attacker said.
