A man is being held after an attempted terror attack at New York City’s main bus terminal, according to city officials.

The suspect, identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, was wounded when a “low-tech explosive device” strapped to his body blew up in an underpass blast at the Port Authority terminal in Manhattan during the morning rush hour on Monday.

They say three other people suffered minor injuries.

A photo circulating on social media shows a man, said to be the suspect, lying on the ground with his clothes ripped and lacerations on his upper body.

“Terrorists won’t win,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in response.

The mayor said he was believed the suspect acted alone.
