First photo of New York bomb suspect with burned midriff after 'suicide belt' detonated too early

This is reported to be the first photo of the New York terror bomb suspect lying on the ground with his burned midriff exposed after his 'suicide belt detonated too early'.

The image, used by the New York Post but which the Mirror has not independently verified, shows the man on the ground with his hands behind his back as police offers stand behind him.

A suspect has been arrested after an explosion at New York's main bus station - which left thousands of terrified commuters and tourists "stampeding" from the area - in what police have called an ISIS-inspired terror attack.

A pipe bomb exploded in an underground subway passage between Times Square and Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan, one of the busiest transport hubs in the world.

The suspect has been named locally as Akayed Ullah, 27, a Bangladeshi native who moved to the US seven years ago, it was reported.

The suspect and three commuters were injured when the device exploded as millions made their way to work at about 7.30am local time.

Horrifying video footage appears to show the moment of the explosion at the peak of the morning commute.

The would-be suicide bomber's device was described as "low tech" - he had wires attached to him and a 5in metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his mid-section, it was reported.

The male suspect was taken into custody after the bomb "partially detonated", law enforcement sources told the New York Post.
