Pipe bombs and pressure cookers don't necessarily mean a sophisticated attacker


Ahmad Rahami was arrested on Monday after a shootout with police on suspicion of planting explosives in three different locations in New Jersey and New York City, one of which injured 29 people after detonating in Manhattan.

But the number of bombs Rahami is suspected of planting and perhaps building does not necessarily make him a sophisticated assailant.

For now, officials have said they're not pursuing anyone else in connection with the explosives.
