Authorities in New York said that dozens of people were injured in an explosion Saturday night in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. There were 25 people who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to officials with the New York Fire Department. Police officers, firefighters and other first responders flooded to the scene, which brought onlookers and closed down a major roadway. The New York Police Department’s counterterrorism bureau also said it was responding to the explosion, which came hours after a pipe bomb exploded in a Jersey Shore garbage can shortly before a scheduled charity race there benefiting Marines and Navy sailors.
