While Canadian government officials had been operating under the assumption that Wednesday’s vehicle explosion at the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls was terror-related, according to national security sources, U.S. officials are now saying there is “no indication of a terrorist attack” at this time.

“FBI Buffalo has concluded our investigation at the scene of the Rainbow Bridge incident. A search of the scene revealed no explosive materials, and no terrorism nexus was identified. The matter has been turned over to the Niagara Falls Police Department as a traffic investigation,” FBI Buffalo said in a statement(opens in a new tab) late Wednesday evening.

“The FBI thanks our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners for their assistance, and we remain committed in our mission to keeping the public safe.”

Speaking to reporters earlier in the evening, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said while the investigation continues, “At this time, there is no indication of a terrorist-involved attack.”
