NEW YORK, Oct 25: New York authorities are calling the sending of a pipe bomb to CNN headquarters in Manhattan's Time Warner building an act of terrorism, although they ruled out any "specific threats" in the city.
At a joint press conference with New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, state Governor Andrew Cuomo and security personnel, Cuomo said that given the profile of the incidents that have occurred in recent hours it "we wouldn't be surprised" if more such devices turned up, Efe reported.
"Terrorism only works if you let it work. What they are trying to do is scare us and destabilize us. We will not allow that to happen. We will not allow these terrorist thugs to change the way we live our lives," the governor said. - IANS
