US police have reportedly found a third suspected explosive device in New York City. Earlier, a blast rocked the city wounding 29 people. After the explosion, the police found another improvised explosive device in New York.
The CNN television broadcaster reported that investigators located another suspected explosive device, the third one, near the site where the blast had occurred. According to CNN, the third device has been found two blocs away of the 23rd street.

​The explosion hit New York’s Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan at around 8:30 p.m. [00:30 GMT] on Saturday. According to reports, the blast has left nearly 30 people injured. The New York Police Department said that a possible second explosive device was found in the neighborhood.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said earlier the explosion was "intentional" but there was no evidence to classify it as a terrorist attack.

 

"There is no evidence at this point of a terror connection to this incident, this is a preliminary information," de Blasio told journalists.
