Gov. Cuomo is ordering tighter security at high-profile locations such as airports, bridges, tunnels and mass transit systems, in the wake of Monday's terror attack at New York City's Port Authority Bus Terminal.
“This is a person living in New York, a cab driver, car service driver, who was annoyed, irritated by our political position, or sympathetic to ISIS, etc.”
Cuomo added the attack largely failed.
“Fortunately the bomb was very low tech, it did go off, it didn’t have the desired effect, well the chemical exploded, but the bomb itself did not go off.”
The governor says suspect Akayed Ullah was inspired by radical content online.
Law enforcement officials say Ullah came to the United States in February, 2011 with an immigrant visa.
He has a green card and is a permanent resident of the U.S., currently living in Brooklyn.
He was wearing an improvised low tech explosive device attached to his body, when it went off in a subway passageway around 7:20 Tuesday morning.
