New York suspect in custody after attempted terror attack in Manhattan

New York suspect in custody after attempted terror attack in Manhattan
A bomb has exploded on a Manhattan subway platform leaving four people injured in a suspected-ISIS-inspired attack.

The suspected bomber is Akayed Ullah, a 27-year-old Bangladeshi national who is thought to have lived in the US for seven years, the Telegraph reported on Monday. 

Ullah, who lived in Brooklyn, was armed with a five-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack as he walked through a midtown Manhattan transit hub.

The device prematurely exploded which meant it only partially detonated in the right side of the suspect's jacket. 

Ullah, who is thought to have been seriously injured in the attack, told officials he made the explosive device at the electrical company where he works.
