The Federal Bureau of Investigation made no arrests in connection with the bombing this weekend in New York City after police pulled over a car on a city bridge, an agency spokeswomen said on Sunday.

“We conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle of interest in New York City but no arrests were made and no one has been charged with any crime,” FBI spokeswoman Kelly Langmesser said by telephone.

She said the investigation was continuing.
