NEW YORK: New York City police have removed bomb-making materials from a parked sports utility vehicle in Times Square, including propane tanks and a clock suspected to be a timing device.
Top police spokesman Paul Browne says investigators have also removed gasoline and explosive powders from the vehicle. An officer noticed smoke coming from the sport utility vehicle around 6:30 p.m. (2230 GMT) and cleared the streets of thousands of theatergoers and tourists from the landmark.
Browne says police are investigating a report that someone was seen running from the vehicle at some point and are reviewing security videotapes. He says the Nissan Pathfinder's license plates do not match the car's registration.
