(Newser) – Police and FBI agents hunted for clues after a homemade bomb blew out windows in a Manhattan Starbucks and jolted awake residents on the Upper East Side before dawn yesterday, reports the New York Times. No one was injured in the blast caused by a makeshift bomb tucked under a street bench. Investigators were probing possible links to three other similar bomb blasts in Manhattan over the last four years. Witnesses reported seeing two teenagers running away shortly before the blast.
