Times Square open after bomb scare

Times Sq. open after bomb scarePolice found a car bomb in a parked sport utility vehicle Saturday evening in New York City’s Times Square, then evacuated buildings and cleared thousands of tourists from the landmark.

“It appears to be a car bomb left in a Pathfinder between Seventh and Eighth,” said Deputy Commissioner Paul J. Browne, the Police Department’s chief spokesman. The device, he said, contained “explosive elements” that included “propane tanks, some kind of powder, gasoline and a timing device.”

Police now believe a catastrophe was averted by technical failure of the explosive device.

The White House said Sunday that President Barack Obama was being kept up to date on the investigation into the apparent car bomb found in New York City’s Times Square.

White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said in a statement that Obama, who attended an annual gala dinner Saturday night for White House news correspondents, praised the quick and effective response by the New York Police Department.
