Bike Bomber: FBI Releases Video of 2008 Times Square Bombing Suspect
Yesterday the FBI releases surveillance video of the March 6, 2008 bombing in Times Square. The bomb was left at an Army recruiting station and did damage to the entrance but caused no injuries.
The FBI is referring to the individual responsible as the bike bomber as he rode a blue Ross bike to and from the scene. The bomber can be seen placing the bomb and then riding away. The actual explosion happens just past the 3 minute mark.
The FBI says the bomb was made using black powder inside a military ammunition can. In addition, the FBI says the same bomber may have been responsible for two other attacks:
Details of this bombing are similar to those of two other unsolved
bombings that occurred in New York City—one at the British Consulate in
May 2005 and the other at the Mexican Consulate in October 2007. All of
the devices were delivered by an individual on a bicycle and were
detonated between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. The incidents may be connected.
A $65,000 reward is being offered for information that leads to the bike bomber's capture.
