NEW YORK (Reuters) – New York police closed off part of Times Square in Midtown Manhattan on Friday as part of an investigation into a suspicious package.

Several blocks of Seventh Avenue were closed to traffic and pedestrians.

A failed bomb attack on New York's Times Square on Saturday has heightened security in America's most populous city.

Prosecutors on Tuesday charged Faisal Shahzad, 30, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and trying to kill and maim people in the United States.

Shahzad is accused of driving a crude homemade bomb of gasoline, propane gas, fireworks and fertilizer into crowded Times Square on Saturday evening

You're in the area now, we gotta hang for lunch someday. Y'know before we're blown to smithereens.

"Shrap metal" is an awesome and evocative phrase.
