Two men who were caught on surveillance footage removing an unexploded pressure cooker bomb from a bag in New York City work at EgyptAir as security employees, airline officials have said.
According to the Daily Mail online, Hassan Ali and Abou Bakr Radwan had flown to New York from Cairo when they found the bag on September 17, the officials told the New York Times.
They didn’t know what was in the bag and just thought it looked ‘nice’, having seen many unwanted items left on the city’s sidewalks in the past, the source said.
The pressure cooker bomb was one of several devices that Afghan-born American citizen Ahmad Khan Rahami is accused of planting in New York and New Jersey over one weekend.
