The suspect, Akayed Ullah, set off his device in a subway passage around 7:30am during rush hour. Three people are reported to have received minor injuries, but the brunt of the force was taken by the terrorist himself.

His homemade device was said to be strapped to his body via zip ties and Velcro.
