A Bangladeshi man with a homemade bomb strapped to his body set off an explosion at a New York commuter hub during rush hour Monday, wounding himself and three others in what New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called an attempted terrorist attack. The suspect in the incident at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, a block from Times Square, was identified as Akayed Ullah, the New York Police Department commissioner said. Ullah is from the Bangladeshi city of Chittagong and is a U.S. resident, said the country's police chief.The bus terminal is the busiest in the United States, according to the Port Authority.On a typical weekday, about 220,000 passengers arrive or depart on more than 7,000 buses. The bus terminal is connected to the Times Square subway station – which serves 10 train lines – through a long, narrow below-ground tunnel that carries thousands of commuters during rush hour.
