An explosive device that had been left in a backpack and put in a bin outside Elizabeth train station in New Jersey was accidentally detonated by a police robot on Monday morning. The bomb was one of five explosive devices found in the area, just a day after a bomb went off in nearby Manhattan, injuring 29 people.

A backpack was found by two men outside Elizabeth station at around 8.30pm local time. Upon opening it, they found pipe bombs and wires, and went to alert the police.
