NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department names a suspect in connection to an explosion that rocked a New York neighborhood Saturday night.

Police say 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami is wanted for questioning. They say Rahami may be part of a terror cell.

The explosion in Manhattan Saturday injured 29 people. Gov. Andrew Cuomo had said earlier that it didn’t appear to be linked to international terrorism. A pressure cooker device was also found blocks away, but it didn’t explode. Authorities were trying to determine if they were connected.

A pipe bomb also exploded Saturday in a New Jersey shore town ahead of a 5K. No one was injured.

And on Sunday night, five explosive devices were found near an Elizabeth, New Jersey, train station.

Rahami is a naturalized citizen from Afghanistan. Police say the suspect may be armed and dangerous.
