Pressure Cookers Suspend NYC Trains, All Clear Given

The New York Daily News reports:

A pair of suspicious pressure cookers shut down a subway station in Lower Manhattan on Friday morning — but the NYPD’s Bomb Squad later determined they were not explosives, authorities said.

Another suspicious package was found near a garbage can in Chelsea just over an hour later. Cops have not determined what the third package was or if it was dangerous.

Police urged straphangers to avoid the Fulton Street subway station because of the first two packages, which were reported by a 911 caller.

Pressure cookers were used in the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three and injured hundreds.
