The story of a bomb planted in Manhattan that didn’t go off has taken a strange turn:


Two men who found a travel bag containing a bomb on a Manhattan street last month — and then walked off with the bag but left the bomb — were not just employees of EgyptAir but in-flight security officers for the carrier, two officials at the airline said on Friday.


The officials said they believed that the two employees were not connected to Mr. Rahami or the bomb plot.

If that’s true, Egypt Air has a problem. This would have been a shorter title for the NYT to use:

Unsettling either way.
