ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) — FBI agents and police converge Monday morning on an apartment near a New Jersey train station where one of five devices found in a backpack exploded while a bomb squad robot was attempting to disarm it.

It wasn’t immediately clear if there was a connection between the dwelling and the blast at the Elizabeth train station at around 12:30 a.m. Monday.

Authorities converged on the apartment just before 6 a.m.

Two men had reported seeing wires and a pipe coming out of a package after finding it at the train station around 8:30 p.m. Sunday.

There were no reports of injuries.

New Jersey Transit trains resumed service along the Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast Line, but there are delays.

Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor service is operating on a modified schedule.
