3:04 am
>> reporter: you make a good point. president obama just touched down in new york city hours ago. we're expecting hundreds of world leaders and high ranking officials here in the city this week forward u.n. general assembly, and any of the events alone are a huge security concern, but add on top of that these explosion, and people are very, very worried. although, authorities and the governor incyist there's no specific threat, but for precaution, there's a thousand state troopers tomorrow and throughout the week to add extra security. as yo see, the street behind me reopened. it was shut down all day, but now 23rd street, where the explosion happened, reopened. >> a nightmare, maggie rulli, thank you. the blast was one of a number of high profile incidents across the country this weekend. >> isis claims responsibility after nine people were stabbed in a minnesota mall saturday. the attacker is described as a 22-year-old former college student born in somalia.

3:06 am
both locations. >> steve, what's the profile, we think, of the person or persons that would do this sort of thing? whether it's one in seaside, new jersey or new york city? >> caller: well, the profile is definitely somebody who is willing to map and to basically develop these types of bombs. the more we're learning about these devices, the more we are seeing there's sophistication. it would require some kind of research, some planning, and there's definitely a lot of information online throughout the internet and al qaeda and isis put a lot of that on the interpret to where people that are here in the u.s. could research and try to develop devices themselves. in this case, 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 kind of people that are just trying to do it themselves. they probably didn't travel out to the middle east or someplace to get the training that some
3:07 am
other people have done, so they're probably people that are trying to do it on their own using the internet to research and develop devices. >> steve, here in new york we say, hear something, say something. that might have helped in this case in finding the secondary device on 27th street. 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 authorities? >> caller: well, in this case, you probably would -- a citizen would have seen was somebody taking a large object, whether it's a tool box or whether it was a pressure cooker, something 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 pressure cookers in the general vicinity, and then they walked away. so that's something that the public has to be mindful of.
3:08 am
it doesn't matter where you are, whether you're at the airport, in the middle of the street where there's restaurants and shoppers and so on. be mindful. why is somebody dropping something and walking away? that doesn't make sense. be alert to that. >> the woman who discovered the pressure cooker thought it was a child's science experiment, but called it in anyway. good move on her part. steve gomez, thank you for joining us. >> caller: great, thank you. and the presidential candidates are also responding to the explosioningsess and the attack. >> donald trump says he'll make america safe again blaming 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 was waiting for the facts and later condemned the incidents as apparent terrorism attacks. >> president obama ripped into trump, calling him unqualified to be president and uninterested in getting up to speed for the

3:31 am
moments, and the big surprises, and some from the red carpet. that's all ahead in the skinny on this monday, september 19th. from abc news, this is "world news now." good morning, i'm diane macedo. >> i'm kendis gibson. just after midnight, another device exploded in new jersey near a busy train station. a bomb squad was trying to disarm five devices found in a backpack when one of them went off. am amtrak service temporary suspended overnight, and the fbi working to disconnect the other four devices. investigators detained five after they were pulled over. no one has been charge pd. >> saturday, the pipe bomb going off in new jersey, the jersey shore, during a marine charity

event. no one was hurt. that same day, a suspect shot dead after nine people were stabbed inside a minnesota mall. >> back to the new york bombing, brian ross has the latest on efforts to make an arrest in this case, and a lot of new developments here. >> reporter: as authorities hunt for a bomber on the loose, the most important clue could be the device that did not explode, a pressure cooker connected to wires and a cell phone discovered four blocks from the first blast site in a white plastic bag. authorities believe it's similar to the device that did detonate, apparently triggered 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 gingerly remove the unexploded device and took it to a lab to be examined for dna, finger prints, and significantly, the registration numbers of the cell
3:33 am
phone. >> we'll do so intelligently and move forward. right now, best evidence for us could be crucial to the case. >> reporter: as technicians spent the day marking each tiny pooes of post-blast debris on new york's 23rd street, officials had determined the explosive used in the boem was a commercially available substance. online videos offer instructions how to make 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 that street prior. >> reporter: and afterwards, on the chance the bomber used the chaos of the moment to cloak his getaway. no terror group claimed responsibility for the attack, but a pressure cooker 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.
3:34 am
whoever set off the bomb in new york for whatever motivation is certainly terrorizing the people of new york. brian ross, abc news, new york. and you can tell definitely tense moments throughout the entire country throughout the weekend. of course, the incident in minnesota we talked about, the stabbing that isis claimed responsibility for. and then all that's happened here in new york in the last couple days. >> a lot of luck involved in the midst of all of this. >> yeah. >> you don't think about that often when you see events like this, but the fact 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, 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 turned out the race was delayed, so the runners were not passing, but the device was set off to go off via timer, set to go off when
3:35 am
the runners were passing. >> and you see these bombs in the pressure cooker bomb you saw in manhattan, and they look like relatively small devices, but many authorities in law enforcement say they do have the potential to injury, 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 responsibility. there's a key component that's a similarity between the seaside, new jersey incident, one on saturday, a flip phone used in both cases. >> it's a strange element to add into the mix because you have people in new jersey, for example, a woman who said she had just thrown something away in the same trash can where the pipe bomb went offexplosion, ana woman thought she passed a kid's science expeerm, called the police, and it was a device. >> all of this couldn't be at a

3:37 am
>> maggie, one of the big questions when we heard this happened, is this connected to new jersey, and it sounds like invest gapters are looking into that possibility. what do we know so far on that front? >> reporter: officials are cautious to make any direct link, but they are saying that the type of cell phone used between the bombing that happened here as well as explosion that happened in seaside park are similar in what cell phone was used, so that's the only link made so far, but, again, they are cautious to draw any direct correlation. >> all right. understandably so. maggie rulli live in new york city, maggie, thank you. we head overseas now where it appears the cease fire in syria is unraveling. there's been air attacks on rebel-held areas in the city of aleppo following an air raid by the u.s. led coalition killing dozens of syria soldiers and led to criticism from russia. in an interview with cnn, keri said russia needs to stop grand standing, show boating, and get humanitarian assistance going.
