New York City Police Investigate Failed New York City Bombing

Local and federal authorities worked Sunday to identify the person or group behind an "amateurish" but potentially powerful bomb planted inside a car parked in New York City's Times Square.

Police found the bomb that apparently began to detonate but did not explode in a smoking sport utility vehicle on Saturday, prompting thousands of tourists to be cleared from the streets for 10 hours while the explosive was dismantled.

"We avoided what we could have been a very deadly event," Mayor Michael Bloomberg said. "It certainly could have exploded and had a pretty big fire and a decent amount of explosive impact."

Investigators removed three propane tanks, fireworks, two filled 5-gallon gasoline containers, and two clocks with batteries, electrical wire and other components from the back of the Nissan Pathfinder, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said. A black metal box resembling a gun locker was also recovered and will be detonated off site, he said.
