  • They evacuated it, still waiting for this guy to stop babbling and say what's actually going on. They did say a 10 block area is evaced.

  • NEW YORK (AP) — Pedestrians were barred from parts of New York City's Times Square as police closed streets to investigate a car that has been "deemed suspicious."

    Police said Saturday the bomb squad was investigating the contents of the car on 45th Street. They say the block was closed between Seventh and Eighth avenues as a precaution.

    Paul Bresson, head of the FBI's public affairs office at bureau headquarters in Washington, said agents are on the scene with the New York Police Department and that the matter is being taken seriously.

    A senior Obama administration official said a Nissan Pathfinder was found with a suspicious package, but officials are not yet sure whether it was a bomb. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official wasn't authorized to speak on the matter.

  • hmm. they must have some kind of tip or something to assume that a package in a car is a bomb right?

  • I'm flipping around now - one station said "secondary device" as if there's already been one explosion, another one says they don't know. This is like Ft. Hood - they're all talking when they don't know anything.

  • No idea, I'm not anywhere near there - it's on CNN, etc, however NYT just reporting that it IS a car bomb in a Nissan Pathfinder.
