>> Authorities continuing to scour Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood for evidence Sunday, the day after a massive explosion rocked the bustling district and injured 29 people. Police have not yet identified any suspects, and are still looking for a motive. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo calling the incident an act of terrorism, but saying investigators have so far found no links to international groups.
00:00:22
>> No one has taken credit there have been no international groups that have put out any statements that are connecting them with this action. Now it depends on your definition of terrorism. A bomb exploding in New York is obviously an act of terrorism but it's not linked to international terrorism.
00:00:48
In other words, we find no ISIS connection, etc.>> The governor deploying 1,000 extra police officers throughout Manhattan in the wake of the blast. Surveillance video from about 8:30 PM Saturday night appears to capture the moment the explosion erupted from inside the dumpster on West 23rd Street. Officials have not yet determined what caused the blast, but did say the device was planted intentionally.

Another possible explosive, reportedly a pressure cooker with wires attached and connected to a cellphone, was found about four blocks away but removed safely. All evidence is being sent to the FBI for analysis. The explosion came hours after a pipe bomb went off the head of a charity race in a New Jersey beach town, Saturday morning.
00:01:28
No one was injured in that case but federal authorities are investigating.>> I spoke with Governor Christie this morning and we're coordinating resources between New York and New Jersey to see if there's anything we can learn. But the bombs that were in Seaside, New Jersey appear to be different than the ones that were in Manhattan.
00:01:51
>> By Sunday morning, all 29 of those injured in New York, had been released from the hospital.
