An unnamed NYPD source has told GotNews that the explosion in New York City today was the work of Islamic terrorists.
Bombs were apparently placed in trash cans in Manhattan’s Chelsea district. Explosions injured at least 25 people. Watch below:

The bombs were consistent with Muslim IEDs (improvised explosive devices), normally found in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The source told GotNews that an attack was imminent after Osama bin Laden’s son “warned us.” This might point to the attack being the work of al-Qaeda rather than ISIS, but nothing is certain yet except that Islamic terrorists did it.
According to police scanners, secondary devices are suspected and the bomb squad has been deployed, as well as robots and bearcats.
Today’s date is close on the calendar to several important Muslim dates.
GotNews will continue updating this post as details develop.
UPDATE: A professional IED analyst confirms GotNews original report from an unnamed NYPD source that the bombs in Chelsea were consistent with IEDs.
