Graphic Footage Of A Failed Suicide Bombing In New York Subway Released
Newly released security video of a failed 2017 suicide bombing in the New York City subway system gives a fuller picture of the police response.
The recording, released by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York shows Bangladeshi immigrant Akayed Ullah leaving his residence and entering the subway system before the bomb on his body exploded last December.
Ullah was convicted Tuesday of supporting a terrorist group after setting off the bomb in New York City's busiest subway station.
The verdict capped a weeklong trial that featured the surveillance video of Ullah the morning when his pipe bomb sputtered, seriously burning him in a corridor beneath Times Square and the Port Authority bus terminal, where most subway lines converge.
The injured bombing suspect is seen down on the ground for around six minutes as police officers assess the situation. Six officers and two military guardsmen approach with guns drawn but retreat after apparently seeing the explosive device.
Officers return about two minutes later and handcuff the bombing suspect and search him.
