Two Detained For Allegedly Detonating Homemade Explosives In NJ

NJ.COM – BAYONNE – The Facebook pages of the two men charged Saturday with setting off small bombs on a fire escape reveal strong emotions and opinions. One of the men, Christopher Ziobro, 21, posted on Dec. 12, “Someday a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets,” apparently quoting one of his favorite movies, “Taxi Driver.” The other man, Ghaias Mirza, 18, says in his Facebook profile that he is an atheist. “There is no god, only humans created that to refer a sign of relief or anguish and pain,” he wrote. Police were called to Ziobro’s home at West 33rd Street home at 2:32 p.m. Saturday on a report that kids were throwing bottles from an apartment the bottles were exploding, a Bayonne police official said this afternoon. Bayonne police, the Jersey City Police Department’s bomb squad, and members of the federally-led Joint Terrorism Task Force responded to the scene and took Ziobro, of Bayonne, and his friend Mirza, of Jersey City, into custody, the official said.

Charges are pending further investigation by the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office and Bayonne Police Department’s Detective Bureau, the police official said.
