3:31 am
small screen come together for the emmys last night, surprise 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 there's a busy train station in the northern town of elizabeth close to new york city. this is the video of that decision. 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
3:32 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 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
3:33 am
toolbox, now a pile of twisted metal. authorities are hoping another 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. 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 bomb er or bombers on what appears to be a similar type of cell phone use. although they insist these probes remain straight by
3:34 am
what are you hearing about 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 skoourt 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 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.
3:35 am
2-year-old former college student born in somalia. 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 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 bomb sg 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
3:36 am
complex investigation and they have to pursue every angle in both locationlocations. >> 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. you no, 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.
3:37 am
to the middle east or some place to get the kind of training that 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 i 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
3:38 am
so that's something that the public has to be mindful of and 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 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 takts. she later condemned the incident as apparent terrorist attacks. >> president obama ripped into trump last night at a new york

3:41 am
what police are thinking is this may be someone who has done this before, could do it again, so if they do catch this thief, they may actually be able to crack other cases of real theft. coming up next, we are heading live to hollywood. >> and we've got all the big moments from last night's prime time emmy awards, history made for one of the world's most popular tv series. and a heart stopping moment on the racetrack. cars come around the track, somebody apparent does not get the heads up. >> find us on facebook, and twiss, @abcwnn. ? yeah, so mom's got this cold. hashtag "stuffy nose." hashtag "no sleep." i got it.
