After several attacks in the US over the weekend, a suspicious device is found near a New Jersey railway station. It exploded as a bomb squad was attempting to disarm it with a robot. It was one of up to five devices found in backpack inside a rubbish bin near the station in Elizabeth, according to the city's mayor. No-one was hurt.
Five people were taken into custody for questioning but no-one had been charged and the investigation continues, according to the US media.
Both the bomb that detonated on Saturday in Chelsea, and a device found nearby, were shrapnel-filled pressure cookers - similar to the bombs used in the attack on the 2013 Boston marathon.
United States may raise terror threat level following the attacks over the weekend:
- A pipe bomb exploded on the route of a charity race in New Jersey on Saturday, forcing the event to be cancelled but causing no injuries
- Also on Saturday, at least eight people were wounded in a stabbing attack at a shopping mall in the US state of Minnesota
- At least 29 people were injured in an "intentional" explosion in the Chelsea area of Manhattan at around 21:00 (01:00 GMT on Sunday)
- Another device was later found four blocks from the site of the blast and later destroyed in a controlled explosion
- A backpack containing suspicious devices was found in Elizabeth, New Jersey, late on Sunday
- One device found in Elizabeth exploded early on Monday as a bomb disposal robot tries to deactivate it
