New Year’s Eve security tightened after botched NYC bomb attack

Security preparations for New Year’s Eve celebrations in New York’s Times Square will be altered following a botched suicide bombing in a subway tunnel, the city’s counterterrorism chief has said. Akayed Ullah, 27, has ben charged with terrorism crimes after detonating a pipe bomb in the pedestrian tunnel on Monday. John Miller, deputy commissioner for intelligence and counterterrorism, said the New York Police Department will carry out an “immediate” and “in-depth” review of the attempted attack. He said: “This is the first time I believe that we have seen an individual with a suicide bomb in mass transit and actually have that bomb function.

“So we’re going to take a hard look at it.”

Plans for security in the New Year will also consider other attacks such as the Las Vegas sniper shooting on 1 October, in which 58 people were killed and more than 500 people wounded, Mr Miller said. An increased police presence will be seen around mass transit and public gatherings, he added. In the short term, that will likely mean more heavily armed and specially trained officers on the streets, as well as more police dogs, bag screenings and checkpoints. Chemicals inside the pipe bomb ignited, but the pipe itself did not explode, officials have said.

Ullah, from Bangladesh, was seriously hurt in the blast during Monday morning rush hour . But the malfunctioning device resulted in only minor injuries for three other people. Acting US attorney Joon Kim said Ullah planned to “murder as many human beings as he could.. . in support of a vicious terrorist cause”. Court papers filed by federal prosecutors claim he told police officers after the blast that “I did it for Islamic State”. He is believed to have begun viewing pro IS material online in 2014 and prosecutors claim he carried out the attack because he was angry over US policy in the Middle East. On the morning of the attack, he posted on his Facebook page1 “Trump you failed to protect your nation”.

He has been charged with providing material support to terrorists and using weapons of mass destruction. Ullah could appear in court on Wednesday via video link.

More from NEW YORK ATTACK

Investigators in Bangladesh are questioning his wife, officials told Reuters news agency . The couple have a six-month-old boy.

President Donald Trump claimed the bombing underlined a need for changes to the US imigration system, which he clamed is “lax” and “allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people” into the US.

Hammer thug told security guard

A man who threatened a worker with a hammer at his local supermarket said I m from Salford, you best let me go after being tackled to the ground by a security guard. Damien Yates, 49, then told the guard: I will be back for you.

The attacker was a regular shopper at the store, in Longsight, and it was inevitable he would have been identified and caught, Manchester Crown Court heard. Yates was jailed for 32 months for attempted robbery on Friday, December 8.

The trouble began when Yates burst into the Farmfoods store in Stockport Road, Longsight, on October 27, brandishing a hammer and threatened a female worker who was cleaning the floor.

The court heard the raid took place at about 9pm and he warned the woman: You better open the till. Yates then raised the hammer above his head before the worker called for help, prosecutor Nicola Carroll said. The store s quick-thinking security guard was able to wrestle Yates to the ground and disarm him, before the police were called.

As the guard pinned Yates down, the defendant said: I m from Salford, you best let me go . I will be back for you.

Defending, Jane Miller said Yates regularly uses the shop as a customer. She said: Staff knew who he was and he was easily identified . It was inevitable he was going to be caught. Yates, of Hamilton Road, Longsight, is originally from Salford but had moved to fashion a new life for himself, Ms Miller said.

He has a history of addiction to class A drugs and has suffered from mental health problems, the judge heard.

The court was told that Yates is remorseful and has sent what the judge described as a heartfelt letter apologising to the shop worker. Ms Miller said a possible explanation for Yates offending was that he had a criminal debt of 600 to pay. Sentencing, Recorder Mark Ainsworth said: The incident was over in a matter of seconds .

Nevertheless it would have been a very distressing incident . It left her shaken up and not feeling safe in her place of work. The judge accepted that Yates, who has an appalling record of 53 previous convictions, recognised the consequences of his actions.

He previously pleaded guilty to one count of attempted robbery.
