Police Say No Taliban Link To New York Car Bomb

Posted by | May 2, 2010 18:38 | Filed under: Top Stories

New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says there’s no evidence that the Taliban is behind the car bomb found in Times Square Saturday night. A group called Tehrik-i Taliban claimed responsibility.

The group claimed responsibility for the attempt in a video posted on YouTube. A tie to Viacom Inc.’s “South Park” cartoon won’t be ruled out, Kelly said. The creators of the TV program are a possible target, CNN reported, after an episode showed images of the Prophet Muhammad in a bear costume.

“It was somebody who brought this to the location to send a message to terrorize people in the area,” Kelly said at a press conference this afternoon. “A terrorist act doesn’t necessarily have to be conducted by an organization.”
