New York officials are investigating who parked a car in New York's Times Square with bomb making materials inside. License plates on a green SUV did notmatch and authorities are now looking through surveillance camera footage.Authorities say the bomb looked "amateurish" but cannot rule out domestic orinternational terrorism.
Police now say they have videotape of a possible suspect shedding clothing in an alley and putting it in a bag. The surveillance video shows a white man in his 40s taking off one shirt, revealing another underneath.
Commissioner Raymond Kelly says officers are on the way to a Pennsylvania town to talk to a tourist who might have recorded the suspect on his video camera.
Also, Kelly says investigators found eight bags of an unknown substance in a gun locker that was in the smoking SUV. He says the substance "looks and feels" like fertilizer but tests are pending.
The commissioner also says there's no evidence that a Pakistani Taliban videotaped claim to the failed car bombing is valid.
Police found the SUV parked on one of the prime blocks for Broadway shows Saturday night. Thousands of tourists were cleared from the area for 10 hours. The bomb was dismantled, and no one was hurt.
