NEW YORK - No bomb was found in a truck abandoned on New York City's Triborough Bridge Wednesday night and the busy roads connecting the boroughs of Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx would reopen shortly, police said.

Browne said the police bomb squad X-rayed the vehicle and found it was empty.

New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the Times Square plot was the 11th thwarted attack on New York City since hijacked airliners destroyed the World Trade Center's twin towers on September 11, 2001, killing more than 2,600 people

There was nothing in the vehicle, however last weeks incident must be brought up. The 1st half of this short article is about the incident which involved a worker. Then it turns to, "came days after a failed bomb attack.." and then towards all the recent attacks. I get that this may be considerd must be news on the media, but it seems like their making more out of it to refresh the memory of the recent attacks. We want to keep the people in fear of terrorists right? Great job journalists!
