Video released of '08 Times Square bombing

Authorities released videos of a bombing suspect riding a blue bicycle to the Times Square military recruitment station

Associated Press

NEW YORK — Authorities are trying to generate leads in the 2008 bombing at a Times Square military recruitment station with new video footage and a higher reward.

On Tuesday, authorities released videos of the bomber riding a blue bicycle to the scene on March 6, 2008. The bike was later recovered in a trash bin.

The FBI and the New York Police Department also are now offering a $65,000 reward.

No one was injured in the attack, but Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said the bomber narrowly missed killing or wounding bystanders.

Officials say the suspect and possible accomplices may be connected to earlier bombings at the British and Mexican consulates.
