HEADLINE: 37 injured in subway explosion
BYLINE: By CHARLES LAURENCE
THIRTY-SEVEN train passengers were injured yesterday, four critically, in a suspected bomb attack on the New York subway, writes Charles Laurence in New York. Police confirmed that a glass jar of inflammable liquid had caused the explosion close to Wall Street. Mr Denfield Otto, an off-duty policeman travelling on the train, said: "There were two people in flames, lying on the floor of the train and some brave passengers trying to beat back the fire." The FBI joined the investigation because a bomb was suspected. News of the explosion caused alarm in the area still jittery from the recent fatal attack on the Madison Avenue advertising executive by the "serial bomber" known as Unabomber.
