3:01 am
winners and political statements from biggest names. how did your favorite shows do? we'll head out live to hollywood on this monday to find out. it's monday, september 19. from abc news, this is "world news now." we begin this half hour with fast-moving developments we're following in new york and new jersey. another device has now exploded in new jersey. there's a busy train station in the northern town of elizabeth close to new york city. this is the video of that explosion. a bomb squad was attempting to disarm devices found in a backpack when one of them went off. >> the fbi has been working to disarm the other four devices. amtrak has temporarily disabled travel in that region. >> the fbi has questioned five people in connection with saturday's bombing in new york city. no one, though, has been charged.
3:02 am
>> and you hear that there. this is new video that was released. security video. you hear the explosion. it captures the motion of that explosion in manhattan. just a few hundred yards away from the scene. >> abc's maggie is there. good morning. >> yeah. authorities continue to investigate exactly what happened. questions about what motivated the bombing remain. a massive manhunt for whoever is responsible for this terrifying scene. >> a bomb just went off in new york. >> you heard the shutter of the windows and everything else and everything just stopped. >> i'm holding you, okay? come with me. you okay. nothing is going to happen. >> the explosion so powerful that authorities are shocked no one was killed and that all 29 people injured have already been released from area hospitals. police found what they believe to be the bomb left in this toolbox, now a pile of twisted metal. authorities are hoping another
3:03 am
device found a few miles away have answers. >> the thought is both devices were pressure cookers and they were similar in construct. >> an unexploded pressure cooker is currently on its way to a fbi laboratory for more investigation. >> this was an intentional act. >> as new york city prepares to welcome hundreds of people for the u.n. general assembly, the govern insisted new york is ready. >> we will find who planted these explosives and they will be punished. >> multiple law enforcement officials are now telling abc news that there is potential that this explosion and the one in seaside park, new jersey, could potentially be linked to the same bomber or bombers on what appears to be a similar type of cell phone use. although they insist these probes remain straight by coordinated. >> and the timing is tough today with the president in town. what are you hearing about
3:04 am
security efforts? you make a good point. president obama just touched down in new york city a couple hours ago. we're expecting hundreds of world leaders and high ranking officials here in the city this week for the u.n. general assembly. any of those events alone would be a huge security concern, but add on top of that these explosions and people are very, very worried. although authorities and the govern insists there's no specific threat against new york city, but as a precaution, they brought about a thousand state troopers out here through tomorrow and the week to add extra security. the street behind me is now opened. it was shut down all day. but now 23rd street is back open. >> maggie, thank you. so the new york city bomb blast was one of a number of high profile incidents across the country this weekend. >> isis is now claiming responsibility after nine people were stabbed at a minnesota mall on saturday. the attacker is described as a 2-year-old former college student born in somalia.
3:05 am
he was shot and killed by an off duty police officer. the victims in that case are expected to be okay. also saturday, a pipe bomb exploded in seaside park, new jersey, just before a marine corps charity run. investigators are exploring the possibilities the explosions in new york and new jersey might be linked. >> former fbi special agent in charge and an abc contributor steve gomez joins us now on the phone. steve, what's the number one gore foal investigators right now? >> so the key that they are dealing with right now, the new york city bombing and the new jersey bombing is whether these are all linked. it's pretty plausible that the two devices found in new york city are connected, but it's a question of whether those are connected to the new jersey bombing. it looks fairley likely just based on some of the evidence found on scenes, but that's one of the first things. if they are connected, it's a major case, it's a bigger, complex investigation and they have to pursue every angle in
3:06 am
both locations. >> steve, what's the profile of the person or persons that would do this had sort of thing, whether it's one in seaside new jersey or in new york city? >> the profile is definitely somebody who was willing to plan and to basically develop these dooips types of bombs. the more we're learn background these devices, the more we are seeing that there is some sophistication. it would require some kind of research, some planning, and there's definitely a lot of information online and throughout the internet and al qaeda and isis has put a lot of that on the internet to where people that are here in the u.s. could research and try to develop the devices themselves. in this indicates, we saw new york city, there was one that went off, one that did not. new jersey, that one went off. so that's typical of the kinds of people that are just trying to do it themselves. they probably didn't travel out to the middle east or some place to get the kind of training that
3:07 am
some other people have done. so they're probably people that are trying to do it on their own using the internet to research and then develop the devices. >> and, steve, here in new york, we're constantly hearing and saying if you see something, if you hear something, say something. what kind of message do you give to people in terms of what to look out for and how to know when it's worth alerting the authorities? >> well, in this case, you probably -- what a citizen would have seen was somebody taking a large object, when it's a toolbox or whether it was a pressure cooker, just something that they had to carry, and they left it somewhere and then they walked away. now, that usually is the red flag right there. so in this case -- and the same thing occurred with the boston bombings when they basically placed those pressure cookers in the general vicinity and they walked away. so that's something that the public has to be mindful of and
3:08 am
it really doesn't matter where you are, whether you're at an airport, whether you are in the middle of the street, restaurants, shoppers and so on. you have to be mindful. why is somebody dropping something and walking away? that doesn't make any sense. they have to be alert to that. >> that, indeed. the woman who found the pressure cooker thought waits a child's science experiment but said, i'm still going to call this in. good judgment on her part. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. donald trump tweeting overnight that he will make america safe again. he's blaming what he calls the failed policies of president obama and hillary clinton for not protecting the country. >> after the blast went off in new york, trump immediately called it a bomb, but clinton said she would wait for the facts. she later condemned the incident as apparent terrorist attacks. >> president obama ripped into trump last night at a new york fund-raiser ahead of the u.n. general assembly. he called trump unqualified to be president and uninterested in getting up to speed for the job.
3:09 am
police in tulsa, oklahoma, are expected to release video of the fatal shooting of a driver today. police say tarrant crutcher was shot by officers when he refused orders to put up his hands and reached into his suv. a minister who saw the video said crutcher had his hands in the air when he was shot and no weapon evident. fefrl investigators are trying to figure out what caused a small plane to crash into a phoenix area home over the weekend. you can see the plane as this bright light descending from the sky. everyone on board, the pilot and four skydivers were able to bail out before that crash. the pilot had minor burns. no one in the house was injured. and investigators are looking into whether bad tires may have led to a deadly bus crash in new york city. two college athletes, the driver and an 8-year-old boy were killed in the accident. the front left tire of the bus blew out, causing the driver to lose control and hit a concrete support column. the ride hailing service

we have breaking news this we have breaking news this morning on "world news now," new developments as investigators try to find who's responsible for the explosion in new york city this weekend. the fbi stopped a vehicle of interest as they looked into similarities between the new york bombing and one in new jersey. that detonated the same day. we are live with the latest. >> that massive investigation underway as the president arrives in new york for several days of meetings, and a week before the first presidential debate, how all this is reverberating on the campaign trail. how everyone walks away from a fiery plane crash. >> the small plane erupting into a ball of fire before crashing into a home. what we're finding out about the plane's pilot and the two people who were inside that home at the time of the crash. and tv's biggest night of the year.
3:31 am
we will have a wrap-up of the big winners, the big moments, and some big surprises. that's all ahead on this monday, september 19th. >> from abc news, this is world news now. >> we want to get to breaking news we'll following overnight just after midnight, another device exploded in new jersey. a bomb squad was trying to dearm several devices found in a backtrack when one of them went off. amtrak service temporarily shut down overnight. >> the fbi has questioned five people in connection with a bombing in new jersey. they were picked up sunday night during a traffic stop on a bridge in new york city. no one has been charged. >> and then there was saturday. that pipe bomb that went off in jersey and the jersey shore during a marine charity event. no one was hurt.
3:32 am
that same day, a suspect was shot dead after nine people were stabbed inside a minnesota mall. >> back to the new york bombing, brian has the latest on the attempt to make an arrest. brian, a lot of new developments here. >> reporter: as authorities comb for a bomber on the lose, the most important clue could be the device that did not explode, a pressure cooker connected to wires discovered four blocks in from the first site in a white plastic bag. authorities believe it's similar to the device that did detonate, apparently triggered in some manner by a cell phone. >> word is both devices are pressure cookers, that they were certainly similar in construct. >> reporter: the new york police bomb squad used a robot to remove the unexploded device and take it to a lab to be examined for dna, fingerprints, and significantly, the registration numbers of the cell phone. >> we're doing so intelligently
3:33 am
and moving forward. that evidence could be crucial to the case. >> reporter: as technicians spent the day marking each tiny piece of post blast debris on new york's 23rd street, officials say they had determined the explosive used in the bomb was a commercially available substance called tannerite. online videos offer instructions on how to set it and how to set it off. police and federal agents are doing a slow motion analysis of the surveillance video of the scene to see whether the bomber could be among the pedestrians walking the sidewalks before the blast. >> we want to see who was on the street. >> reporter: and after, on the chance the bomber used the chaos of the moment to cloak his getaway. no terror group claimed has responsibility for the attack, but pressure cookers have been used by terrorists around the world. most recently in the two bombs set off at the boston marathon three and a half years ago. whoever set off the bomb in new
3:34 am
york for whatever motivation certainly terrorized the people of new york. brian ross, abc news, new york. >> and you can tell definitely there were tense moments throughout the entire country throughout the weekend. of course, that incident in minnesota we talked about, the stabbing isis claimed responsibility for. and then all that's happened here in new york over the last couple of days. >> a lot of luck involved in the midst of this. you know, you don't often think about that when you look at events like this, but the fact that all the victims in minnesota are expected to be okay, all the victims in new york are expected to be okay, and biggest of all, new jersey, the fact that no one was injured and what the investigators are saying is that had the bomb gone off when the race was passing, which appears to be the plan, that many people actually would have been injured, but the race was delayed so the runners were not passing. but the device was set to go off via timer and it was set to go off with those runners were
3:35 am
passing. >> and you see these bombs in the pressure cooker bomb we saw in manhattan and they look like relatively small devices, but many authorities in law enforcement say they do have the potential to injure, if not kill people, and so that's why they are taking this very seriously, and they are all talking together, folks in new jersey as well as authorities in new york, trying to figure out if it is the same person or persons that may have been responsible. there's one key component, they say, that's a similarity between the seaside, new jersey, incident that took place early in the day saturday, and the one in new york, and it's a flip phone used in both cases. >> it's a strange element for the mix because you have people in new jersey, for example, a woman who said she threw something away in that same trash can where the pipe bomb went off moments before the explosion, and you have a woman so 27th street in manhattan who passed what she thought was a kid's science experiment, called the police, but it was an explosive device.
3:36 am
and the u.n. assembly is taking place this week. every year it's a nightmare for security forces and this just adds to it. we are joined now from the city right now, and, maggie, i guess security is a major concern right now. >> reporter: hey, guys, yeah. as you said, you know, every year for the u.n. general assembly, it's always a mess here. it's a gridlock. this year, it will be even worse. we're expecting several high ranking word leaders to descend on the city for the assembly. both the secret service and police are very concerned, very worried, although the governor did come out today saying there's no specific threat against new york city. they are taking precaution. a thousand international guard deployed throughout the city, specifically on subways and busses ensuring people are safe. again, no specific threat against the city. just precaution.
3:37 am
>> one of the big questions when we hear this happening, is is this connected to new jersey and it sounds like they are looking into the possibility. what do we know so far on that front? >> officials are cautious to make any direct link, but they are saying that the type of cell phone use between the bombing that happened here as well as explosion that happened in seaside park are similar in what cell phone was used. that's the only link made so far. again, they are cautious to draw direct correlation. >> understandably so. we are live in new york city, maggie thank you. and we head overseas now where it appears the cease-fire in syria is unraveling. there have been air attacks on the rebel-held areas in the city of aleppo following an air raid by the u.s. coalition killing dozens of soldiers and criticism from russia. in an interview with krn, secretary of state john kerry said russia has to stop the
3:38 am
showboating and get the humanitarian assistance going. >> president obama's holding a series of high level meetings here in new york attending his final u.n. general assembly before he leaves office. the president meets one on one today with the premier of china before sitting down with the iraqi prime minister, and tomorrow, he'll host a summit on the global refugee crisis. the president arrived in new york yesterday to headline a democratic fundraiser in manhattan. he slammed donald trump saying he has no interest in gaining the knowledge required to be president. on saturday, he told the congressional black caucus if african-americans want to give him a good send off, vote for hillary clinton. >> i will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. >> the president laughed off the fact that trump is finally acknowledging he was born in the united states, saying there's an extra spring in his step now that the birther thing is over. >> trump is holding a rally in florida today while clinton campaigned in philadelphia.
3:39 am
at some point, they'll be in new york meeting with world leaders gathered for the u.n. general assembly. they are both sitting down separately with the egyptian president and clinton meets with the president of ukraine and japanese prime minister. there's a lawsuit over an exploding smartphone. the florida man claiming he suffered second degree burns when the samsung galaxy note 7 ignited in his pocket. it's believed to be the first such lawsuit in the country. the man says hours after the accident, he received an e-mail from samsung warning of the problem. they recalled the note 7s last week. in the wake of the samsung problem, owners of the new iphone 7 can be forgiven. if we get a little nervous when the devices begin hissing. it begins when there's a heavy workload for the phones like games. >> doesn't happen with all iphone 7 or 7 plus, but the lines outside apple stores for its release weren't as long as in the past. most of the new devices were sold out through preorders,
3:40 am
though, and -- >> i was one of the preorders. >> is yours hissing? >> it's not. >> no? >> when it does, it's just general disdain that most people have when they get close to me. >> so we don't have to worry if we hear a strange sound coming from your iphone? >> exactly. >> i'll stick with my old one for a while. >> star trek. >> i would still have the nokia phone if they let me. coming up, sky divers who survived the plane turning into a fire ball and then crashed into the house. what we know about the pilot and people inside the home. television's biggest night of the year, biggest award winners, funniest moments and stunning fashions ahead in the skinny, but first, today's forecast. still hot out there in hollywood. ♪ "world news now weather" brought to you by american advisers group.
