ALERT: NYPD, FBI Seek Chelsea Bombing Suspect, Ahmad Khan Rahami

Chelsea bombing suspect is identified


Via the NY Post:

A 28-year-old man is being sought in connection with the bomb blast that injured 29 people in Chelsea on Saturday night, officials said.

Ahmad Khan Rahami’s name was released as the investigation into the bomb explosions in New York and New Jersey have led authorities to signs that a terror cell might be located in the two states, a law enforcement source told The Post.

The alarming possibility of a terror cell emerged as the FBI launched a raid in Elizabeth, New Jersey, early Monday – hours after authorities discovered five suspicious devices, one of which blew up near a train station.

It was not immediately clear if the feds — which included members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives — found any possible suspects during the raid at Linden and Elmora streets.

Elizabeth Mayor Chris Bollwage said the raid at an apartment, where a man lives with his son, was related to the incident in Chelsea on Saturday, according to reports.

Meanwhile, Gov. Andrew Cuomo now believes there may be a “foreign connection” with the explosion Saturday night in Chelsea.
