Hunt on for culprits in failed New York car bomb

Hunt on for culprits in failed New York car bomb 02 May 2010 Investigators are treating a car bomb defused in New York's Times Square as an attempted terrorist attack but have no evidence to support a Taliban claim of responsibility, police said on Sunday... U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano called the scare a "potential terrorist attack" but she and other officials held off saying whether there was a link to Islamist groups or to a domestic cause in the United States. A U.S. intelligence official told Reuters "we just don't know at this point who may be behind this event."
