Abandoned truck on New York bridge triggers false alarm

Authorities shut down the Robert F Kennedy Bridge after the abandoned truck was reported. A man was seen leaving the truck but the bomb squad which was rushed to the scene found no explosives, police said.

The fresh scare came just days after a failed bombing plot in Times Square raised fears of another terror attack on the city, prompting a massive manhunt that led to the arrest of a Pakistani-origin suspect. The Robert F Kennedy bridge connects the three boroughs of Manhattan, Queens and Bronx in the city.The bridge was re-opened shortly after being closed for brief period of time during the inspection.
