CCTV footage captured the moment an explosion rocked a New York neighbourhood on Saturday. It shows passers-by running away from the blast in the district of Chelsea.

The explosion, reportedly from a shrapnel-filled pressure cooker, injured 29 people. A second device similar in design was found four blocks away and police destroyed it.

The governor of New York Andrew Cuomo vowed to bring those responsible to justice.

Difficult words: blast (an explosion), shrapnel (pieces of a something after an explosion that fly through the air and can hurt people), vow (promise).
