Pittsburgh is target #2 of Weekend Terror

Last night's attempted bombing of Times Square was scary, but we all hoped it was an isolated incident. But it appears that it may not be the case as a pipe bomb was found at the finish line of the Pittsburgh Marathon. But again, it was disposed of before anyone was hurt.

One officer at the scene said that the device was a microwave with a pipe bomb inside. The microwave was in a white box near the entrance of the building.

However, Police Chief Nate Harper would only confirm that there were suspicious contents inside the microwave.

The device was detonated and Liberty Avenue and Grant Street had been blocked off.
It is scary to see so many attempted attacks, but reassuring that so far we have been spared from the potential disaster.

"They" like to hit multiple targets on the same day.
