At least 29 people were injured after an explosion in the Chelsea neighbourhood of New York. This explosion comes after a pipe bomb exploded in a New Jersey shore town on Saturday shortly before thousands of runners were to participate in a charity 5K race to benefit Marines and sailors. However, no links to the 2 incidents have been found.
The cause of the explosion, that took place in a dumpster, is not yet known, but officials have ruled out gas as being the source of the explosion.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio told the media that the blast was an intentional one, but he added that there was no perceived terror threat to New York City.
