Authorities have released their first "wanted" name in connection to Saturday night's Manhattan bombing. The FBI is looking for 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami, who is described as a naturalized US citizen born in Afghanistan. His last known address was in Elizabeth, NJ, where five more devices were found. The release says only that he is wanted for questioning. The development comes after five people were detained as authorities try to determine whether weekend blasts in New York City and New Jersey are related. More details on the investigation and on new devices found in New Jersey here. (Read more Ahmad Rahami stories.)
