PORTSMOUTH, N.H. Authorities remained in a standoff with a man on a Maine-to-New York Greyhound bus Thursday, hours after a passenger called 911 to report an explosive device on board. The other 16 passengers and the driver safely got off the bus, which was parked in downtown Portsmouth, surrounded by a bomb squad and sharpshooters, including one in an armored vehicle.

“17 on board bus after bomb threat in Portsmouth”
By Kathy McCormack
Associated Press Writer / May 6, 2010
SNIPPET: “PORTSMOUTH, N.H.Authorities say 17 people are on board a Greyhound bus being blocked by police and fire officials in downtown Portsmouth after a report of a suspicious device being found on board.
Portsmouth Police Capt. Mike Schwartz said someone on the bus made a 911 call and reported an explosive device after they arrived in Portsmouth. “
More local details here:
Per the link, there were 17 hostages on the bus. The would-be bus bomber released 16 of the hostages. So, my question is this: since 16 eye witnesses have seen the would-be bomber up close and personal, why is there no description of him?
I bet it was one of those militant Amish yoots! Those Pennsylvania Deutsch sure have gotten radicalized in the last few years! What’s up with that?!?!?!?
“Hanover Street cleared; robotic devices sent to inspect bus during bomb scare”
SNIPPET: “PORTSMOUTH — More than 7 hours after police were called to Hanover Street for a report of a possible bomb on a Greyhound bus, passengers began being released to family members following interviews by local police, while one passenger remained aboard the bus at the scene.
Shortly after 7 p.m., a female — swarmed by the media — was released by city police after being debriefed at the Junkins Avenue station where she was reportedly picked up by her father.”
SNIPPET: “Sixteen other passengers walked away from the bus two hours after the initial call, with their hands in the air, down the middle of Hanover Street, flanked by SWAT team members.
“We certainly would like him to get off the bus,” said Schwartz of the man that remained on board.
At approximately 11:40 a.m. Thursday, police and firefighters responded to the area of the High-Hanover parking garage, where they surrounded a Greyhound bus while watching a subject inside. Shortly afterwards emergency responders began evacuating nearby businesses.”
SNIPPET: “According to Schwartz, police had not recovered any type of device from the bus.”
