New Jersey beach bomb Panic

An explosion that went off in a garbage can Saturday morning in a New Jersey beach town likely was timed to disrupt a Marine Corps charity run, authorities said.

Three pipe-bomb-type devices wired together were found near the boardwalk in Seaside Park.

No injuries were reported and a four-block area was evacuated for most of the day, authorities said.

Gee, this is a new development on American shores?
