Consulate Blast Still Shrouded in Mystery

Explosion Outside British Consulate in New York City Still Shrouded in Mystery After Two Months
NEW YORK Jul 9, 2005 — Two months after an explosion blew out a window near the British consulate in midtown Manhattan, authorities have no clear motive or suspects.
The early morning blast May 5 caused no injuries, but there was speculation that it was meant to coincide with the election that returned British Prime Minister Tony Blair to power. It drew an enormous emergency response by New York officials.Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn't mention the explosion or the investigation Friday when he visited the consulate to offer condolences after the deadly London subway and bus bombings, and it was business as usual at the 21-story building that houses it on a busy stretch of Third Avenue.
