Hillary Clinton says she has been briefed about explosions in New York and New Jersey and a mall attack in Minnesota and is calling on the nation to support first responders and to pray for victims.

Police in New York City are investigating an explosion that injured more than two dozen people. In New Jersey, a pipe bomb exploded in Seaside Park shortly before a 5k run but caused no injuries. Police in St. Cloud, Minnesota, are investigating reports of multiple injuries at a mall possibly involving both shooting and stabbing.

Clinton tells reporters traveling with her that she will have more to say when more is known about the incidents.

Both Clinton and her opponent, Donald Trump, are referring to the explosion in New York City as a bombing, a description authorities didn't use publicly in the early hours of the investigation.

Trump had just arrived in Colorado Springs, Colorado, for a rally Saturday night when he said, "Just before I got off the plane a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows what's going on but we are living in a time--we better get very tough folks."
