A bomb that exploded in the heart of Times Square just after 3:30 a.m. in 2008 has gone unsolved for seven years.

The FBI hopes to end that streak after announcing Wednesday that progress has been made in the attack, which resembled two earlier bombings in Manhattan.

The FBI has not yet identified the suspects.

Agents also are trying to determine whether one either of the bombing suspects received training.

“I think, given the level of sophistication of this device, the fact that the pressure cooker is a signature device that goes back to Pakistan, Afghanistan, leads me to believe . . . that there was a trainer,” House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R., Texas) said. “And the question is, where is that trainer or trainers?”
