New York Pipe Bomb

Pipe bombs with gunpowder as the explosive filler are notoriously under preforming bombs. Yes, pipe bombs are used world wide by suicide bombers, many have a more powerful explosive filler, and do a lot more damage than this. It is possible that this bomb did have a homemade explosive in it, but failed to detonate correctly. This is one reason the ISIS bombers that are successful are held in such high regard, it is not easy to make these bombs.
