  • The 28-year-old's father reportedly told police two years ago that his son was a terrorist

  • At least 31 people were injured, including a British national, in an explosion in New York's Manhattan district shortly before 9pm on Saturday
  • A second, undetonated device was found at 27th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues and was 'safely removed'
  • A suspicious package containing up to five pipe bombs found near a train station in Elizabeth, New Jersey, has now been linked to initial blast
