Possible suspect caught on tape

NEW YORK (AP) - New York City police investigating the failed
car bomb left in Times Square have videotape of a possible suspect
shedding clothing in an alley and putting it in a bag.
Commissioner Raymond Kelly Kelly says officers are on the way to
a Pennsylvania town to talk to a tourist who might have recorded
the suspect on his video camera. The video shows a white man in his
40s taking off one shirt, revealing another underneath.
Kelly says investigators found eight bags of an unknown
substance in a gun locker that was in the smoking SUV. He says the
substance "looks and feels" like fertilizer but tests are
pending.
The commissioner also says there's no evidence that a Pakistani
Taliban videotaped claim to the failed car bombing is valid.
Police found the SUV parked on one of the prime blocks for
Broadway shows last night. Thousands of tourists were cleared from
the area for 10 hours. The bomb was dismantled, and no one was
hurt.
