Breaking: Attempted Bombing in New York City Subway Fails

Earlier this morning a Muslim man, inspired by ISIS, attempted to conduct a suicide bombing in the New York City subway system.

Thankfully, 27-year old Akayed Ullah, seems to have made a few mistakes along the way and while his bomb exploded in the halls of the metro area… the only person to be significantly injured by his homemade bomb was the terrorist himself.

From Fox News:

A Bangladeshi man reportedly inspired by ISIS set off a pipe bomb inside New York’s Port Authority bus terminal during rush hour Monday morning, sowing mass chaos but causing few injuries — likely because the “attempted terrorist” detonated his “low-tech device” prematurely.

Akayed Ullah, 27, set off the “effectively low-tech device” in a subway passageway just before 7:30 a.m., New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a news conference. Ullah, who lived in Brooklyn, suffered burns and wounds to his abdomen and hands and appeared to be the only person seriously injured in the pipe bomb explosion, authorities said.

At least three other people suffered minor injuries, including ringing in the ears and headaches. They are in stable condition and expected to be released later Monday, the hospital said in a statement to Fox News.
