The authorities in the US believe that a single terror cell was responsible for the explosions that occurred in the past few days in New Jersey and New York, a law enforcement official told CNN today (Monday). According to the source, the investigations into the bombs that were planted at a location in Manhattan and two locations in New Jersey led to specific suspects. Law enforcement agencies in both the states are currently looking for the suspects. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that although the authorities do not have any warnings about future terror attacks, people need to always be alert and prepared for them.

One of the suspects is Ahmad Khan Rahami, a 28-year-old American of Afghan descent. It was reported that Rahami lives in Elizabeth, New Jersey, where a bomb was discovered late last night. Five of his family members were already arrested over the night.

Earlier today, JOL reported that an explosive device was discovered late Sunday night (New Jersey time) in a garbage bin near a train station in Elizabeth. A bomb squad detonated the device and no injuries were reported.

On Saturday night, a pressure cooker bomb went off near a nightclub in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, New York. 29 people were injured in this explosion. Most of the victims suffered minor injuries. Only one victim was seriously injured.
