NEW YORK: New York's Times Square was reopened to the public early Sunday after police removed a sports utility vehicle used in what authorities have described as a failed bombing attempt.
Television images showed the dark green Nissan Pathfinder being pulled onto a flat-bed truck and moved to a police location where it will be examined by bomb experts for additional evidence.
"The vehicle will be examined for DNA and fingerprint evidence," city police commissioner Raymond Kelly told reporters earlier.
Kelly said the device, discovered inside the car at about 6:30 pm (2230 GMT) Saturday, consisted of three propane tanks, consumer-grade fireworks, two gasoline containers, wires and two clocks.
Police are hunting the car's driver.
