new york - The 27-year-old man who tried to commit a terrorist attack on Monday in the heart of New York had put his bomb down quite amateurishly.
Akayed Ullah used a Christmas light as an igniter in his gunpowder filled pipe bomb and a small battery to turn on the Christmas light. Because of the explosion, the lid of the metal tube shot, but the pipe bomb itself remained intact. As a result, only Ullah, who had secured his creation to his body with Velcro and tape wraps, was seriously injured.
